A little more modern Misconduct is nearly ready for its star turn at 18th Street and JFK Boulevard, joining Chops and Chima on a mini-restaurant row.

(English) Football fans, rejoice! If you've found it hard to follow your favorite teams because you can't find a bar stool to sit on at the expanded Misconduct Tavern on Locust Street between the Avenue of the Arts and Rittenhouse Square, owner Chuck Ercole has heard your pleas.

Same goes for you diehard Phillies fans, all 20 of you.

The nautical-themed sports bar whose burgers and house-made hot dogs have won acclaim and regional compeitions is nearly ready to open a second location in the Sterling apartment/office building at 18th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard in Logan Square.

A recent swing past the location reveals that the color palate will be similar to that of the Locust Street original, but the interior design will be a bit more contemporary in keeping with the style of its new Midcentury Modern host building. The floor-to-ceiling windows will let in lots of morning sun thanks to the open plaza of the Comcast Center to its east, and there should be some afternoon light as well through the windows facing JFK Boulevard.

Michael Klein of the Inquirer reported on the lease signing last November; at the time, the projected opening date was mid-March of this year. Clearly, some issues caused that date to be pushed back. Judging from the nearly-completed state of the interior, we expect to hear an announcement of a fall opening soon.
