Description

The outside of the venue, tucked into the demure Philadelphia Business and Technology Center, is unassuming — but it doesn't take long to realize just how ambitious of a project it really is. Le Cochon Noir started as an outdoor-only venue with an auxiliary kitchen on the grassy area outside the Center, but now that it's got this address, the plan is to turn it into a premier spot for live jazz, blues and foreal-foreal barbecue-influenced fare. The high-ceilinged warehouse space features table and booth seating and a 22-foot stage with custom lighting and sound systems; Parker will book locally during the week and seek out national names on weekend nights. There's an in-the-works triangular bar that'll eventually feature sliding garage door access to the outside, where there'll be a stage featuring Caribbean steel-drum performances. Parker is also planning an elevated, glass-enclosed 2,600-bottle wine storage unit so large it'll actually be able to accommodate a 15- to 20-person table that can be used for tastings.
