You won’t get lost using a compass.

Dave Dominick, bar manager extraordinaire, has set out on his own and will be opening the Compass Lounge in the Canal District. Dominick, who has managed too many nightspots to list, will offer food and numerous draft beers. The Philadelphia native will feature what he said will be an authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwich. He will also serve steaks and other homecooked comfort foods. Watch for the opening. The Compass will occupy the space that once housed Smokestack Urban BBQ on Harding Street.
