New Sports Bar and Restaurant “SET NoLibs” Debuts This Week!
SET Hospitality is expanding beyond New York City with the debut of their first out of market concept right here in Philadelphia. SET NoLibs will make its official grand debut this Friday, August 21, 2020 at 3:00pm at 1030 N. 2nd Street in Liberties Walk. For their Philadelphia grand opening, owners of SET Hospitality have partnered locally with management partners Glu Hospitality for the new location. SET NoLibs aims to present a unique, relaxing and interactive dining and drink experience in a spacious, colorful and hip atmosphere.
When open this Friday, SET NoLibs will feature nearly 2,400+ square feet of indoor space, including the dining room, bar, bar lounge and private event space. The dining room is ready to open as soon as local and state officials give the green light. For outdoor seating, SET offers expansive sidewalk seating on 2nd Street, an extended and festive parklette/ streetery on 2nd Street, and seating in the Liberties Walk courtyard.
SET NoLibs joins the massive stretch of N. 2nd Street that is now filled with the most outdoor dining and parklettes in the entire city of Philadelphia along one main stretch. This area has also become a hot spot for socially distanced outdoor dining as it coincided with no cars on that stretch of second street due to a road closure around Girard and 2nd – so it organically made this stretch car free at the present time.
From the kitchen, enjoy an Asian-fusion menu of elevated bar and gastropub favorites. Menu offerings include shareables, sliders, skewers, seafood, tacos and wings all made with only the best, hand-picked ingredients to ensure quality and freshness. Signature dishes include Bulgogi Cheesesteak Sliders (Korean BBQ Marinated Sliced Ribeye, Bell Peppers, & Tex Mex Cheese with Chipotle Mayo), Jalapeno Cheeseburger Springrolls, Thai Chili Sriracha Wings (Eat At Your Own Risk), Bahn Mi Chicken Tacos (Lemongrass Chicken with Pickled Carrots, Cucumbers, Cilantro, & Sriracha Aioli), New York City Chopped Cheese Tacos (Ground Beef, Cheddar Cheese, Bacon, Tater Tots, Pico De Gallo, & Chipotle Aioli), Skewers, Charbroiled Oysters, Cajun Garlic Buttered Clams and much more.
Right out of the gate, SET will launch in Northern Liberties with a must-try brunch menu including Steak and Eggs Skillet (Vietnamese Buttered Skirt Steak, Sriracha Garlic Home Fries, 2 Sunny-Side Eggs), Pat Lafrieda 30 Day Dry Aged Burger (Bacon, American Cheese, Caramelized Onion, Sunny-Side Egg, & Garlic Aioli on A Brioche Bun, with Choice of Home Fries, Tots, or Waffle Fries) and Fried Breakfast Wontons (Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Cheese, & Caramelized Onions).
From the bar, sip on unique and well-balanced craft cocktails that feature SET’s own spin on the classics, plus playful selections that pair with the Asian-influenced cuisine. A full selection of craft beer, wines by the glass and other beverages are also available – including frozen cocktails during the heat of the summer months. Signature cocktails include Lychee Martini, Jalapenos Popper and Cheeky Tiki.
For vibe, SET NoLibs looks to expand on what a neighborhood restaurant and sports bar typically looks and feels like inside. SET NoLibs features one-of-a-kind art and light installations that were created with help from local artists that spotlight local sports teams and iconic city scenes.
