Good old Jolly Weldon is back. Two years after closing Jolly’s Piano Joint, the bar owner every well-kept Philadelphian over 50 seems to know and love reemerged with his latest rendition of a piano bar, just around the corner. This rollicking, New Orleans-style piano joint places two baby grands on an elevated center stage that faces a line of plush U-shaped booths that encourage sinking into and ordering specialty cocktails all night from a seated position, unless, of course, you wish to partake in piano karaoke or some spontaneous getting jiggy with it. For those unable to score a booth, there’s always the option of two trim bars in the front and back of the room, one of which comes equipped with regular happy hour specials, a host of divorcees who may or may not get physical with their personal trainers, and TVs to watch in the hours before 8pm, when the pianos get going.
