The Singing Fountain

The heart of the ‘hood sings a sweet song (literally)


The epicenter of East Passyunk life, the Avenue’s famous “Singing Fountain” (it literally plays music, from old-school Sinatra to modern pop) is a centrally located meeting place that regularly hosts public events, from opera performances to a weekly farmers market.

Stylish spot for super sushi and small plates


The owners of nearby restaurant Paradiso created South Philly’s answer to posh sushi spots. The richly appointed Japanese bring-your-own-bottle (BYOB) spot looks out to the Singing Fountain, where diners can eat in the warm-weather months. Though the extensive menu pleases all sushi lovers, the inventive small-plate specialties like rock shrimp tempura draw adventurous diners.
