Enjoy the Nightlife in Philly

Posted: Jun. 9th, 2012  |  By Sarah Smith

Are you looking for some ways to spend your nights while visiting Philadelphia?  Philly is on fire at night, with a buzz of night life activities that you will want to be a part of.  You can sip cocktails, listen to a variety of live music, go dancing or just hang out with the hipsters.  Not only is Philadelphia alive at night, but almost everything you will want to do is close together.  You will be able to hit numerous hot spots by walking or a short cab ride.  Here are some places to look for during your nights out in Philadelphia.

Johnny Brenda's

A number one Philly hang out, Johnny Brenda's is all about the hometown; with a menu which emphasizes locally-grown produce and a craft beer selection with beers from the region’s many excellent breweries and a live music venue that showcases Philadelphia's thriving indie rock scene.  Food at Johnny Brenda's is a priority and the menu, which is served until 1 am, is delicious and constantly changing to reflect what is in season.  With grilled octopus, creative sandwiches and lamb kabobs, among many other more traditional foods, you are sure to find something to delight your palate.

Village Whiskey

This 30 seat square space is a tribute to its namesake and is reminiscent of a speakeasy.  Village Whiskey features a veritable library of 80-100 varieties of whiskey, bourbon, rye and scotch from Scotland, Canada, Ireland, United States and even Japan.  From the imagination of culinary genius Jose Garces, this intimate space boasts a menu of "bar snacks," which means deviled eggs, spicy popcorn shrimp, soft pretzels and an à la carte raw bar.  A wide variety of Whiskey-based cocktails fall into two categories, Prohibition (classic cocktails) and Repeal (more contemporary, modern takes), which are sipped in this speakeasy atmosphere of dim lighting, posters for various alcohols, a tin ceiling and antique mirrors.

Silk City

If a night of dancing is more your forte, check out Silk City, a hip nightlife spot with specialty cocktails, breakdancing and an all-star cast of DJs.  Donned with red and neon lighting, a black-and-white tile floor, black paintings and disco ball chandeliers, this nightclub just screams out "drink and dance!"  Just to add to the fun, Silk City hosts parties, events and drink specials nearly every night of the week. 

So whether you want to eat spectacular food while listening to live music, sip cocktails in a speakeasy or dance the night away, Philadelphia's night scene has something perfect for you.
