Time, a bar-restaurant at 1315 Sansom St., will reopen at 5 p.m. Wednesday, nearly one month after a water main ruptured, sending rushing waters through the neighborhood.
Time's electrical and refrigeration systems were destroyed.
Executive chef Mackenzie Hilton will offer a limited bar menu for a few days until everything is fully up and running. No draft beer will be available at the outset as the draft lines are still getting fixed.
Time required a new electric panel and new flooring on the first floor.
"There was so much water pouring in, it was insane," owner Jason Evenchik told The Inquirer on July 3. "I saw it outside the beer walk-in [refrigerator], and I could see kegs floating outside. There had to be a foot of water at that point. By 5 [a.m.], it was nearly 3 feet. By 5:15, it was probably chest-high."
