Summer is the perfect time for soul food—and
here in Philly, you don’t have to travel far from your 1500 Locust apartment to
Ms. Tootsie’s Restaurant, Bar & Lounge is
now in its 20th year. Located a half-mile from your 1500 Locust apartment, the
venue has been open for takeout throughout the last few months and is now
gearing up to get back to business. No matter what you’re in the mood
for—dinner, drinks, lite bites and more—Ms. Tootsie’s has you covered.
The business offers an impressive collection of
different atmospheres, with five separate lounges and bars designed to suit
outings of any size and style. In the World Bar, start your night off with
drinks and enjoy a sophisticated, stylish setting. The Sky Bar is the perfect
spot for after-dinner drinks, with leather seating, candles, soul music and
lots of dancing.
When it’s time for dinner, opt for the Love
Lounge if you’re out with your special someone, which is set up for couples’
dining and features soulful, sensual music. The swanky R&B Lounge, with
black leather and red velvet seating, pays tribute to Philly artists like Jill
Scott. The Luxxe Lounge is on the upper level and features posh seating, candles
and more to set the tone for a luxurious night out.
The menu is just as eclectic as the setting.
Start with Southern favorites like catfish, crab mac & cheese, chicken and
waffles, jumbo shrimp and crab cakes before moving onto the main dishes. The
Southern fried chicken is a staple, as are options like BBQ pork ribs and
smothered pork chops.
On the drinks side, Ms. Tootsie’s is known for
its signature cocktails. Strawberry lemonade, rum punch, spiked iced tea,
watermelon fusion and more will have you feeling like you’re lounging on the
Bayou, while wine and beer drinkers can also indulge in a wide selection of
local and international offerings.
We’ve all been cooped up for months, so once
things get back to normal, it’ll be the time to treat yourself to a night out,
all while supporting local businesses!
