Having something appear older than it is can be a mixed bag, being great for blue jeans, not so much for Billie Jeans. For a new bar with a lived-in feel, hit the Owl. From the folks behind laid-back landmarks EasyBar and Estelle's, The Owl sports a similarly dive-y vibe, with dim amber lighting, a softly curving, 40-stool'd bar, and, held over and spruced up from the previous occupants, a retro-looking waterfall, which you're sure to go chasing...with a beer! Sauce-wise there's a robust whiskey and rye selection to go with 20 crafty draft brews, including Three Floyds Pride and Joy, Firestone Walker Double Jack, and, as they're one of the lucky few outsiders allowed to tap it, Revolution's Bottom Up, which, being 4.5 ABV, oddly won't get you ass-faced. In place of a kitchen they're keeping handy a binder of menus from nearby establishments (Irazu, Dante's Pizzeria ...), and tunes'll alternately come from a 100-CD, uh...medium-school (?) jukebox, and a rear lounge area whose couches can be cast aside to create a stage for bands and DJs, who hopefully bust "Motown Philly" so Stephanie can get her dance on to it. Of course with a name like the Owl they're naturally keeping late hours: 4a nightly and 5a Saturdays, late enough you're likely to think just about anyone is "the one".
