The City of Brotherly Love has no shortage of hip and happening places to grab a drink, and there are a few that stand out with a bit more to offer than just food and alcohol. Whether it’s beer and wine or specialty cocktails you prefer, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite little-known bars in Philadelphia for a truly unique and memorable night on the town.

Bar Poulet

Bar Poulet is a small cafe located near the city’s Rittenhouse Square that features high-quality beers, wines, and cocktails with ingredients from all over the world, all on tap. The restaurant’s menu centers almost entirely around, well, poulet, which is the French word for chicken. They serve half or whole birds fried in a buttermilk-honey batter, and it pairs perfectly with all of their beverages. Bon appetit!

Hop Sing Laundromat

This bar is actually so well hidden that you may not notice it if you don’t know where to look. Hop Sing Laundromat is a speakeasy-style bar located in the city’s Chinatown district especially known for its craft cocktails. Guests enter by ringing an unmarked buzzer outside the building to then be let in by the host.

Concourse Dance Bar

If you’re looking for a high-energy night out, look no further than Concourse. This bar located in Center City includes an ice bar and even a ball pit in the middle of the dance floor for a fun and exciting experience sure to bring out your inner child.
