ATLANTIC CITY RESTAURANT RHYTHM & SPIRITS SET TO DEBUT
SECOND LOCATION IN PHILADELPHIA
The Tennessee Avenue Restaurant Will Open Its Suburban Station Location in Spring 2024
Atlantic City (February 13, 2024) - Restaurateur Mark Callazzo and food & beverage expert Lee Sanchez are bringing the exciting essence of their dynamic duo to Philadelphia with an expected opening in spring. Rhythm & Spirits, their contemporary Italian-American restaurant on Tennessee Avenue in Atlantic City, is opening a second location at Suburban Station in the City of Brotherly Love in early 2024. Callazzo and Sanchez, both distinguished entrepreneurs and visionaries, plan to duplicate the elegantly eclectic vibe of Rhythm & Spirits Atlantic City in Philadelphia, establishing a new upscale yet approachable restaurant and bar destination.
Expanding the brand of Rhythm & Spirits has been a longtime dream for Sanchez, and Philadelphia made the most sense for the next location. A large base of loyal customers reign from Philadelphia, and the proximity to Atlantic City is also a huge bonus.
“Many of our customers are from Philadelphia, so we are really excited to open our second location in Center City,” Sanchez said. “Our Philadelphia customers who have shore homes here have been telling us how much they wish we had a second location in Philadelphia. So, we are really thrilled to open our doors this winter and bring our ‘A.C. Famous’ Rhythm & Spirits in Center City’s world-class culinary scene.”
The vision for Rhythm & Spirits Philadelphia includes the same innovative, carefully curated food and cocktail menu as the Atlantic City location and a nearly identical quirky atmosphere, with a reverse color scheme from dark to bright. The new Rhythm & Spirits will be twice the size of the space in AC at 4,500 square feet. In the rear of the restaurant will be 32 Chocolate Speakeasy, the Philadelphia version of Bar 32 Chocolate on Tennessee Avenue, offering bean-to-bar chocolate creations including desserts, cocktails, candy bars and more.
Residents and visitors of Philadelphia can look forward to enjoying award-winning cocktails, exquisite Italian-American dishes with a twist, and an oasis of trippy, tropical décor all in the heart of the city.
“There isn’t anything like it in Philadelphia,” Callazzo said. “It’s traditional Italian-America food with a twist and our chocolate desserts and cocktails are handmade straight from the bean to the bar. Oh, and our brunch, with an emphasis on chocolate dishes, is out of this world. We can’t wait for Philadelphia to see why we’ve become ‘A.C. Famous’.”
