Send Off Summer at This Rooftop Bar

Summer is all but faded from Philadelphia, but we still have a few weeks until the fall chill fully settles over the City of Brotherly Love. If you’re looking for one final hoorah to soak up some sun and say goodbye to summer, why not do so at one of Philly’s amazing rooftop bars? Sipping and socializing with friends amid spectacular views of the city skyline is a great way to put an exclamation point on the summer of 2019 and make a few more memories—and with so many awesome rooftop hideaways near your 1500 Locust apartment, you barely have to leave home to soak it all in!

One of the best is Bok Bar, a seasonal rooftop venue in nearby South Philadelphia. Bok is situated in an historic former school that has now been transformed to include private workspace, event venues and much more—with Bok Bar being the rooftop gem. The venue is open Wednesday through Sunday and welcomes youngsters until 7 p.m., as well as all day on Sundays—when pups are also invited to partake in the fun!

Just what can you find at Bok Bar? Lots of opportunities to kiss summer goodbye with amazing food, drinks and an even better backdrop. Its food menu features small bites with a Middle Eastern flare, including kebabs, empanadas and gyros. On the drink side, Bok offers 18 different craft beers, many of which are locally brewed, as well as a dozen wines from around the world, and a full bar of spirits. The venue features frequent events, such as yoga, networking socials, themed dining and more. Best yet, all of this takes place amid 360 views of the city.

Bok closes up for the year at the end of September, so make sure to hop the Broad Street Subway or stroll the quick two miles soon to get in on all the end-of-summer fun!
