A home of our own!

Philadelphia, PA, October 14, 2022 — Ars Nova Workshop is excited to announce our new home at the site of the old Boot & Saddle bar on Broad Street in South Philadelphia. It’s a venue we’ve welcomed audiences to many times before, and we’re proud to now make it our own!

In partnership with Solar Myth, a new cafe and bar slated to open at the location in November 2022, Ars Nova will have exclusive access to the venue formerly known as Boot & Saddle—the back room where we’ve previously presented great music from the likes of Nels Cline, Jason Stein’s Hearts & Minds with Marshall Allen, and Hijokaiden. This new establishment will be a great new hangout—morning coffee and pastries, natural wines, and amazing music listening all day.

With this new dedicated venue, Ars Nova will continue to provide audiences with access to a steady stream of the music we know and love. We’re already booking amazing acts for fall and winter 2022, and dreaming about multi-night engagements, residencies, and more.

We can’t wait to welcome you to our new home!
