Back when, El Presidente was a workingman's corner bar at Second and Master Streets in Kensington.

Liquid Room coming to Kensington


Back when, El Presidente was a workingman's corner bar at Second and Master Streets in Kensington.

Seven years ago, entrepreneur Ramonita Rivera bought it with the idea of opening it as a contemporary bar.

In that time. the neighborhood - the pocket north of Northern Liberties, just two blocks north of Girard Avenue - has come up.

And now, that bar is about to open.

Liquid Room (1361 N. Second St.) soft-opens Friday, Dec. 7. Mediterranean-influenced menu, bars on two levels (eight crafts on tap), plenty of street parking.
