Washington Square West is really starting to hop.
Brickwall Tavern, out of Burlington and Asbury Park, N.J., opened Friday at 1213 Sansom St., across from the landmark Fergie’s.
Beer/cider list includes 24 on tap.
Pub menu includes not only sandwiches, burgers, and snacks but also platters (Nashville chicken, chicken pot pie, and a full-on breakfast), and mash/noodle/grain/green bowls.
Multiple bars help spread the fun — and, with live music, boost the decibel-bending volume.
In a novel setup, Brickwall shares owners and the building with Porta, the new North Jersey-rooted pizzeria whose entrance is on the Chestnut side (1214-16 Chestnut St.).
Also nightlife related: Iron Hill is fixing a brewery/restaurant at 12th and Market in the East Market development, and City Winery — whose live-music lineup in its other American cities is first-rate (on the order of World Cafe Live) — is coming to the new Fashion District Philadelphia.
