The best old fashioned you can get around rittenhouse. Excellent place for pregame. Cocktails are best quality.

Really cool speakeasy style bar. But if you don't get here early or have a big group your going to be waiting a ridiculously long time (assuming you get in at all).

Wow, this place is cool. I'm coming back when I have more money. I got a tequila drink and it was one of the best mixed drinks i've ever had. Highly recommended.

If your in the neighborhood, or even if your not... This place is a must visit if your are into truely interesting drinks. These folks are Mixologists in the truest sense. Looking for shots or White Zin? god elsewhere so I can get in quicker ;-)

This place really doesn't live up to the hype. Although it's a must go if you enjoy being treated terribly and waiting 20 to 30 minutes to be served a cocktail. I've been here 4 times and have really tried to like it, but there are better places to go in Philly. Bars like please don't tell and death & Co. can get away with treating guests like this but these guys don't quite have their act together. Avoid this place and go to a bar that wants your business.

Easily Philly's best cocktail bar, this dimly-lit subterranean space makes use of all the bells and whistles of modern mixology and is very similar to Death & Co. in NYC. The main tip you need for this joint is to go early. They don't allow standing and there's frequently a line of folks waiting for a stool - if you get there right when it opens you shouldn't have a problem. If you do have to wait, the drinks are worth it.
