To those who mourned the loss of Zot in Society Hill, there's hope and hops.
Bruce Nichols of Museum Catering, a founder of Philly Beer Week, is taking over the place (122 Lombard St.) with a beer-focused restaurant/bar called The Headhouse. (Pun! It's off Head House Square.)
He's looking at early March, in a partnership with landlord Madame Saito Ai.
Nichols also will run his catering commissary from the building after five years in Manayunk.
