Sip Your Way Through Summer

One of the hottest summer parties returns to Philly this summer, with lots of opportunities for sipping and socializing right near your 1500 Locust apartment.

Center City Sips is a popular weekly happy hour event that takes over dozens of bars and restaurants in the area all summer, from June 7 through Aug. 30. Every Wednesday, from 5-7 p.m., partiers can enjoy impressive deals on drinks and dinner at local spots. Visit the same participant each week or rotate to get a taste of all that Philly has to offer throughout the summer. With specials like $3 beer, $4 wine, $5 cocktails and half-priced appetizers, Center City Sips provides a great excuse to get out and about after work without worrying about breaking the bank.

Here are just a few of the award-winning venues participating this year:

Dilworth Park Café: In the shadows of City Hall, cool off with some fruity drinks, light bites and a different DJ each week. The café includes an outdoor oasis featuring an open-air grill, comfy seating and lots of people-watching opportunities at this main hub of Center City, four blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment.

Franky Bradley’s: Three blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment, Franky Bradley’s provides live music and entertainment, cozy seating and an impressive whiskey menu.

Harp & Crown: Dive into the drinks and dining at Center City Sips at Harp & Crown, three blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment, and then head downstairs for a rousing game of bowling in the restaurant’s private bowling alley.

Moriarty’s: Food, fun and friendly faces abound at this traditional Irish pub, five blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment.

Yakitori Boy: Sushi lovers will have to put Yakitori Boy, one mile from your 1500 Locust apartment, on their Center City Sips game plan. After the specials wrap up, partiers can put their singing skills to the test in one of the venue’s karaoke rooms.
