This September, South Broad Street music hall Boot and Saddle reopened its doors after being shuttered for more than a decade.
Thanks to the development work of R5 Productions and Four Corners Management — the same team that brought you Union Transfer, Morgan’s Pier and The Dolphin Tavern — the much-anticipated venue got, ahem, back in the saddle and now rocks a full lineup of genre-spanning talent two to six nights a week.
From punk and metal bands to indie rock and singer-songwriters, a huge range of talent is slated to take advantage of the critically acclaimed sound system and fill the 150-seat hall with tunes more than 150 nights a year.
Besides arriving to see live music in the back room, though, folks can mosey down to Boot and Saddle seven days a week to eat and drink in its 50-seat restaurant, which is separate from the music hall.
With a brand-new menu conceived by chefs George Sabatino, who also helms the kitchen at Morgan’s Pier, and Christopher Davis, who will man operations in South Philly.
The brief menu highlights local produce with a nice vegetarian selection and features hearty sandwiches and a weekly pasta special. Plates range from $5 to $14, making dining affordable, and include such tasty-sounding dishes as whipped goat cheese, roasted pumpkin and kale soup, and a house-ground turkey burger on brioche.
From the bar, look for a well-rounded selection of local craft brews and domestic favorites on 10 rotating taps, by the bottle and by the can.
Tickets to see shows are available online and start at just $10. For the complete calendar of shows and to purchase tickets, check here.
But no need to come for a show to enjoy kicking back at Boot and Saddle. The kitchen and bar will be open seven days a week, from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. For the complete menu, see below.
