Whether you’re dancing and dining in Old City, heading to a hipster hangout in South Philadelphia or catching a live jazz show in Northern Liberties, you are pretty much always guaranteed a great time.

Another lovable aspect about Philly after dark — everything is conveniently close together. Whatever neighborhood you choose, you can almost certainly hit multiple hotspots within a short walk or cab ride.

And in Philadelphia, you can enjoy great food at anytime. Looking for a place that serves after 10 pm? Or the best place to find a cheesesteak at 3 a.m.? We’ve got you covered.
