Bill Hanson, one of the owners, said that he and his partners will take over the spot at the northwest corner of Fourth and South Streets that everyone remembers as Lickety Split. A rumor to that effect was posted on

Lickety Split, across from Jim’s Steaks, was a landmark Philly fern bar that closed in 1996 after more than two decades. It later was revived, in name only, before the joint was Jon Taffer-ized in 2014 as 2nd State Lounge and Alleged Pizza for his Bar Rescue TV series. It closed earlier this year.

“We believe in South Street,” said Hanson, who is keeping details close to the vest for now.
