Philly Homegrown-Inspired Items At Some Center City District Sips Locations

Center City District Sips has been rocking Wednesday nights for nearly a month now and already, it looks like this summer will be an unqualified success for this annual Center City-wide happy hour deal. One of the things that was new about this year’s CCD Sips is that they have partnered with us to bring a little local sourcing to some of the offerings. Here are the spots where you can get your Sip on, local style.

  • Bistro St. Tropez* is offering Phoenixville’s own Sly Fox Saison Vox
  • The Coffee Bar has Flying Fish’s Exit 4 in a 12 ounce bottle
  • Fado has Philadelphia Brewing Company’s Kenzinger on draft and their Walt Wit in bottles
  • Ladder 15 has Philadelphia Pale Ale on draft
  • M Restaurant* is offering a seasonal menu of locally sourced bites
  • All the participating Marathon Restaurants* are serving up a sangria studded with local fruit
  • Noble American Cookery has Kenzinger and Fleur de Lehigh, both from PBC
  • Opa will be pouring Victory’s Prima Pils
  • Tavern 17* is offering all local drafts for the Center City District Sips price

And remember. Cocktails are $4, wine is $3 and beer is $2 for both bottles and drafts. Featured appetizers are half price. Oh, and the asterisks mean that if you stick around and have dinner once happy hour has wound down, those restaurants will take 15% off your meal. Not a bad deal at all.

Center City District Sips
When: June 1–August 31, Wednesdays 5–7 p.m.
Cost: $4 cocktails, $3 wine, $2 beer and half-price appetizers
