What’s Going to Replace Q BBQ in Old City?

There’s a new, and ambiguous restaurant project coming together in the former home of Q BBQ near 2nd and Chestnut streets in Old City. Insider reports that Darren Hill, one of the owners of National Mechanics and the web and tech concern WebLinc, has plans to take over the property, and that no other details are available. In this post-bottle service era, what could possibly work at this address? Hill already has craft beer and pub grub locked down around the corner. So does just about every other bar in a 10-block radius. Hopefully he’s dreaming bigger than that. A craft-y cocktail joint would certainly shake things up for that part of town. So would a cozy brown spirits parlor like Village Whiskey. And as much as we would still like to get our tiki bar itch properly scratched, Old City’s the last place we want it to happen. Tell us what you would like to see go in there. [Insider]
