Restaurants, Bars & Nightlife

13th Street is a favorite destination among Philadelphia residents.  Some heavy hitters located along this street are Barbuzzo, El Vez, Sampan & Lolita (where you can Bring Your Own Tequila).  13th Street isn’t the only spot, there are restaurants peppered throughout the neighborhood such as Farmer’s Cabinet, Mercato, Kanella & two of famed chef/restauranteur Marc Vetri’s restaurants Vetri & Amis.  There are a ton of adorable bars & coffee shops like Varga & the Last Drop.  There are also a bunch of places to go for drinks like Graffiti Bar & Time.

Grocery Shopping

Head over to Bella Vista to shop at the Whole Foods & the Super Fresh.  The Foodery located on 10th is a great place to get gourmet items & craft beers.  Also nearby is the Reading Terminal market.  The selection is unparalleled & is full of local vendors.

Farmer’s Market

The Jefferson Farmer’s Market sets up at 9th & Chestnut on Thursday’s from 11-3 in season.

Shopping

Antique Row runs up & down Pine Street & you can find an amazing selection of antique furniture, art, decor & a few curiosity shops.  I think it would be safe to say we love houses around here.  What we love even more is finding home decor stores with unique offerings & Wash West has some amazing places.  One of our favorites is Hello Home.  Some others are Verde, SOTA (Spirit of the Artist), Ten Thousand Villages & Open House.  There are a number of places to find a hostess gift, beautiful paper goods & stationary & anything else you don’t really need but really really want.

Green Space

Washington Square Park, one of William Penn’s original planned open spaces is located in the northeastern corner of the neighborhood.  It is surrounded by boutiques & high rise condo buildings.  It is a quiet leafy retreat with benches & walkways & is a beautiful place to spend some quiet time outdoors.  There is also the Louis Kahn park, named after the late, great architect who lived & built in the neighborhood at 11th & Pine.  Seger Park at 10th & Lombard is more of a playground with courts & jungle gyms.  There is also a tiny little pocket park at Perth & Addison.

Parking & Public Transportation

Check out bestparking.com for private parking lot options.  The majority of the neighborhood is permit parking so street parking is at a premium.  Market East Station at 8th & Market has access to the regional rail, PATCO & the subway.  There are subway stops located along Broad Street & Market Street & there are a number of buses that service the neighborhood.

The stately brownstones that comprise Strickland Court on Spruce St have been tastefully sculpted into individual units, keeping with the old world elegance along that tree-lined boulevard in Washington Square West. The handsome wood doors leading to the foyer and magnificent hallway adorned with traditional wallpaper and winding staircase allude to a time of elegance and stature. This stunning 2nd-floor unit applauds the historic pedigree with towering ceilings, crown molding, original dark wood floors and expansive space. The kitchen, tucked into a building curve, is cozy and efficient. The living area is astoundingly expansive and features a lovely mantled fireplace. The bedroom continues the pattern?a large open space adorned with long Victorian era windows, accompanied by a huge walk-in closet. This is truly old world elegance transformed for today's lifestyle. The neighborhood is home to the well-known restaurants along 13th St, the Gayborhood is anchored between Antique Row and the eateries along Pine St and Spruce, the cultural institutions along the Avenue of the Arts and regional theaters on Walnut and Chestnut are all within walking distance, and the Market St East station is a public transportation hub to other parts of the city.
