Fishtown - Kensington - Port Richmond
Philadelphia’s Fishtown, Kensington and Port Richmond—collectively known as the River Wards—are some of the city’s most rapidly changing neighborhoods. An influx of restaurants, bars, music venues, art galleries and residents are quickly transforming the makeup of these formerly working-class sections along the Delaware River.
As with many neighborhoods in Philly, the River Wards’ borders are subject to debate. There’s also East Kensington and Olde Richmond, depending whom you ask.
Taking after its sister restaurants in Washington Square West and East Passyunk (called Bing Bing Dim Sum), the Fishtown Cheu upholds the traditions of serving interesting takes on Asian dishes and not taking itself very seriously. Buns, dumplings and noodles come in a variety of forms, and the snacks and drinks make it a popular happy hour and nighttime spot. 1416 Frankford Avenue, (267) 758-2269.
So much more than a cafe, this versatile space opens at 7 a.m., offering coffee and fresh juices to neighbors on their commute. The full-service restaurant serves healthy and sustainable breakfast, lunch and dinner with vegan and gluten-free options, while the bar draws happy hour crowds with cocktail specials. In warmer months, the patio, garden and outdoor bar turn into an urban oasis. 1253 N. Front Street, (215) 513-3073.
Luckily for pizza fans, this Fishtown pizzeria doubles as the world’s first—and largest, according to Guinness—pizza museum, complete with pizza-related vinyl records and pizza-bearing action figures, from Homer Simpson to Spider-Man. With pie names like “Forbes Waggensense” and “Felix Huppert,’ the brick-oven pies are as quirky as their home. 2313 Frankford Avenue, (215) 291-2965, pizzabrain.org
The flagship for the specialty coffee roasting company fills a giant Fishtown warehouse that serves as a restaurant, bakery and cupping lab. Guests choose from the beverage menu of traditional blends, single-origin coffee or the revolutionary Draft Latte, a texturized true iced latte served on tap or in a can. 1335 Frankford Avenue, (267) 479-1600.
In a rehabbed former factory outfitted with giant chandeliers, exposed brick, a merchandise stand in a VW bus and the giant, photo-worthy “LIVE” sign at the entrance, The Fillmore matches its cool space with fantastic music. A 2,500-person main stage brings in national acts, and the more intimate 450-person Foundry space attracts DJs and local talent. 29 E. Allen Street, (215) 309-0150.
This 300-seat comedy club, Live Nation’s first outside California, encourages patrons to come early and stay after the shows to enjoy the bar, restaurant and outdoor patio. Still, the stand-up comedians are the main draw—think Dave Chappelle, Jay Pharaoh, Bill Bellamy, Marlon Wayans and Nikki Glaser. 33 E. Laurel Street, (215) 606-6555.
