Classic Philly restaurant and martini bar whose accolades include Food and Wine magazine’s Best Chef Hangout and Playboy’s Best Bar award. It also featured on MTVs “Sex in the 90s” so you can be sure you’ll get some sauce with your spice. Martinis are innovative and imaginative – chocolate and raspberry flavours proving most popular – and the design reinforces the classic cocktails image: the lamps look like martini olives right down to the toothpick stems. The original creation of restaurateur Stephen Starr, Continental was one of the first hot spots to put Old City Philly back on the map. The restaurant’s sizzling food is known as “global tapas” and you can expect rich snacks to go with those masterful martinis. Continental types are moneyed over-thirties who like a bit of old-world glamour with their 21st century tastes. Music fits the cutting edge scene.
