The furnishings are going, going, gone.

Get a piece of the Spaghetti Warehouse

The Spaghetti Warehouse at 1026 Spring Garden St., which closed before Christmas, is being sold pretty much down to the walls.

Auctioneer Barry Slosberg will sell the knickknacks and furnishings starting at 9 a.m. Saturday (1/29) on site. Many old signs and some overly lacquered furniture, plus a few cool pieces such as a barber pole and potbelly stove, are among the lots, as well as restaurant equipment.

Even the trolley sitting in the main dining room is good to go, but as Slosberg told me, it will not be an easy sale.

The monstrosity is hooked up to the building's sprinkler system, and probably has to be dismantled by the buyer.

See Slosberg's site for the rundown.

So, you might ask, what's next for Spaghetti Warehouse?

It will be a huge concert venue called Union Transfer, run by New York booking giant Bowery Presents, Philly's R5 Productions, and Four Corners Management's Avram Hornik and Mark Fichera. Opening is being targeted for September.
