In a recent revival of North Philly, we can now add another jazz gem to the list, located down the street from the Divine Lorraine (soon to be apartment buildings upstairs and commercial downstairs).
Welcome SOUTH: Kitchen, Jazz, Bar to the expansive list of top-tier night life establishments with a top of the line venue and restaurant at 600 N. Broad Street.
Pioneering restaurateurs and jazz aficionados Robert and Benjamin Bynum , who have brought such fine venues as Warmdaddy’s Paris Bistro , and the late Zanzibar Blue to the City of Brotherly Love, are reaching out yet again with a beautiful three-room establishment featuring a top of the line jazz room, an inviting kitchen, and a contemporary bar and lounge.
“We need to support our great heritage as an important jazz city and provide unique opportunities for these artists to perform here,” Robert Bynum told Explore Philly. “SOUTH will be a major destination for jazz artists touring in support of new releases. We want to be a welcoming option for those national artists who’ve always come through Philadelphia, as well as an attractive choices for the artists who have not made Philadelphia one of their stops in the past.”
