Atlas Restaurant Group, a Baltimore-based national hospitality company, is pleased to announce that Loch Bar, their premier seafood concept, will join Philadelphia’s buzzing food & beverage scene in Fall 2023. The splashy seafood destination will bring one of the largest raw bars to the city of Philadelphia, serving lunch, dinner, and brunch on the prominent corner of Broad and Spruce Streets, at the ground floor of Arthaus Condominiums.

“We are incredibly grateful to be able to introduce Loch Bar to the city of Philadelphia. We have always been excited by the art, culture and culinary scene that defines Philadelphia, and feel that Loch Bar will be a welcomed addition and natural fit for the market,” said Alex Smith, Founder and President of Atlas Restaurant Group. “We are bringing something new to the table, both literally and figuratively, and are eager for Philadelphians and visitors alike to immerse in the full Loch Bar, and by extension Atlas Restaurant Group’s dining experience.”

Located along the Avenue of the Arts at 301 S. Broad Street on the ground level of Dranoff Properties new luxury residential building, Arthaus Condominiums, Loch Bar will be ideally positioned within Philadelphia’s most lively, and artistically focused and creative neighborhoods.  Directly across the street to the world-renowned Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, and surrounded by venues such as the Wilma, Suzanne Roberts, the Miller, Academy of Music, and Clef Club, Loch Bar will become a key player in creating and adding to the unique vibrancy of the Avenue of the Arts and its surrounding area.

“Not only will Loch Bar serve as a home-base dining spot for Arthaus residents, but also a landmark dining destination for business and community leaders, theatergoers, neighborhood residents, tourists, and more, bringing a new life and energy to the Avenue of the Arts,” said Carl Dranoff, President & CEO of Dranoff Properties. “We are thankful to have played a role in bringing Loch Bar to Philadelphia and in introducing Atlas Restaurant Group as they embark on this new market.”

In addition, Loch Bar plans to utilize herbs grown within the greenhouse and sky garden atop Arthaus Condominiums for select dishes and cocktails.
