A lot of booze has passed under the bridge — and by under the bridge, we mean down our gullets — since we last heard word of Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co.’s expansion into the former salon above the subterranean cocktail hideaway.

From what Philly Chit Chat’s HughE Dillon is reporting, the bar’s second story could be mixing, shaking and pouring drinks in a matter of weeks. [PhillyChitChat h/t to Foobooz]
