The Fort, new bar-restaurant, to take over former Friendly’s in Fort Washington this summer

The Philadelphia Inquirer announced today that 60 new restaurants are coming to the greater Philadelphia area, one of which will be in greater Glenside.

The Fort, a family-friendly bar-restaurant to be located at 325 Pennsylvania Avenue in Fort Washington, is expected to open in August.

The owners of Jasper’s Backyard in Conshohocken, who also owns Mercedes-Benz at Fort Washington, are manning the operation.

A proposal was submitted to the Upper Dublin Township Board of Commissioners in 2022. A conditional use hearing was held on July 12 that year. You can view the meeting’s agenda here
