Bank & Bourbon is inside the Loews Hotel, the former site of the iconic PSFS building.
Founded in December 1816, PSFS (Philadelphia Savings Fund Society) was the first savings bank to organize and do business in the United States. In 1932, PSFS built a new headquarters building on the southwest corner of Market Street and 12th Street. Designed by George Howe and William Lescaze, the new PSFS Building is a National Historic Landmark was the first international style skyscraper built in the United States and known for being topped with its iconic 27-feet-tall red neon initials PSFS, which are visible for 20 miles.
