Ortlieb's to be revived as a jazz house

It is expected to open as soon as the liquor license is transferred from founder Pete Souders.

Ortlieb's to be revived as a jazz house


Can't stop the music.

Avram Hornik and Mark Fichera are behind a plan to revive Ortlieb's Jazzhaus in Northern Liberties, which closed last year.

Hornik told me that he plans to open as soon as the liquor license is transferred from founder Pete Souders.

The two, whose club collection also includes Drinker's Tavern, Drinker's Pub, and Lucy's Hat Shop, are still months from opening Union Transfer, a music venue at the former Spaghetti Warehouse on Spring Garden.
