It's a boy!

Tria’s “spunky little cousin,” Biba is a new little wine bar the size of a hallway with just thirty two seats, communal-style. It is now open as of last Friday with twenty six wines by the glass all under $10! Check out the teeny menu- spunk included.

The Left Bank, 3131 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19104.
One block west of World Cafe Live in University City.
