After nine years in Two Logan Square on 18th Street, Brian Harrington and Gary Cardi are saying goodbye to Public House.
July 5 will be the meet market's finale. The partners are taking the summer to renovate it into a City Tap House, intended to resemble their beer-centric bar/restaurant in the Radian at 40th and Walnut Streets. (They opened another CTH in D.C. in December.)
When City Tap House Logan Square opens in September, Morrissey Design will have redone the main bar area, spread out over two sections of the restaurant. Lunch and dinner will be served daily in the 170-seat dining room.
The design calls for a forest of reclaimed wood, plus copper and steel accents, plus fling-out doors and an AV system built out of an 18-by-9-foot video wall.
