An instantly recognizable beacon situated at one of the busiest intersections in the city, Johnny Brenda’s has become synonymous with the slow-and-steady growth of Fishtown as a citywide commercial and artistic draw. Partners Paul Kimport and William Reed, owners of the nearby Standard Tap, took over the longstanding neighborhood bar in 2003, infusing new life into the space over the course of a decade-plus. Up front still has that comfy tavern vibe, with local draft beers and billiards. But the rest of the space offers multiple options, from a small dining room in the back to the balcony-equipped music venue upstairs that’s championed by local and touring artists for its intimate layout.

You’ll hear melodies and beats, but also beeps and field-recorded clicks and swells of punkish pink noise....Dance and electronic Tuesday May 22 2018 - Thursday May 24 2018
