Philadelphia Neighborhood Spotlight: Fishtown

Philadelphia Neighborhood Spotlight: Fishtown

With incredible cuisine, nightlife, unique warehouse spaces, and a lively music scene, there's always something new to check out in Fishtown. It's no longer in the shadow of Northern Liberties — it's taken the spotlight. 

Come Now, and Come Hungry

Gone are the days where your food options in Fishtown were limited to cheesesteaks and restaurant chains; some of the best restaurants in the city can be found in Fishtown and next-door Kensington. For amazing Mexican, look no further than Loco Pez (don't miss their margaritas). Hankering for a gastropub? Check out the food and impressive draft list at Kraftwork. Looking to treat yourself? There's a number of fine dining options, including ModoMio — go on Sundays for a deal. Lastly, if you need a pick-me-up as you adventure through Fishtown, the flagship La Colombe is in the middle of it all on Frankford. 

Bring Your Dancing Shoes

Fishtown has arguably grown on the back of its nightlife scene. From warehouse parties to staples like The Barbary, there's always a good time. Notable music venues include the legendary Johnny Brenda's and the hot newcomer, The Fillmore

Bring on the Culture 

If you're looking for Fishtown's more sophisticated side, Frankford Avenue Arts is the go-to resource for exhibits, events, and all things art in Fishtown. First Fridays are a must-attend. There are a number of art galleries — The Art Dept is a star — as well as boutiques along Frankford and Girard Avenue.
