Shop 'Til You Drop

Moon + Arrow sells vintage clothing and accessories, artisan jewelry, home accessories, and gift items that will make your inner hipster rejoice. Bus Stop Boutique, voted “Best Shoe Boutique in the Country” by Footwear Plus Magazine, carries hard-to-find designer styles for both men and women. Need a new look?

Get Amped on South Street
What once opened as a neighborhood movie theatre in 1908 is now one of Philadelphia’s best small venues to see bands and musicians of all genres: the Theatre of Living Arts (TLA). With shows nearly every night a week, this intimate venue will provide you a night of great music and access to delicious late-night bites for that post-show fix. Walk a few more steps and you'll find some of Philly’s favorites, including Jim’s Steaks and Lorenzo and Sons Pizza. Hoping for one more drink? Tattooed Mom is a unique and intimate spot to have that final night cap.
What About the Noms?
Queen Village has some of Philly’s most talked about restaurants. Opened by the minds behind Triangle and Los Caballitos Cantinas, Royal Sushi and Izakaya delights with sake, Japanese whiskey, and traditional Izakaya fare. Look for the red lantern at the corner of Second and Fulton St. Nestled in a corner storefront on Fabric row, Hungry Pigeon serves creative yet simple American fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This cozy, sun-lit, brick exposed cafe is very popular during the brunch rush but is well worth the wait. The 4th Street Delicatessen has been Philly’s go-to for pastrami, corned beef hash, potato pancakes and cookies. Known for their mile-high sandwiches and enormous portions, this Jewish deli does not disappoint.
