12th Air Command

Philadelphia’s only gay bar with a rooftop deck


If you’re not sure what you want from a night out, it doesn’t matter—you’ll find it at 12th Air Command. These three floors are swarming with gay men every night of the week, and are always packed on the weekend.

You’ll find a lounge and a café on the first floor, a roomy place to shoot pool and a steamy disco on the second floor, and on the third floor, the 12th Air Command’s crown jewel: the outdoor rooftop bar. Enjoy cocktails and your choice of a full meal or munchies from this room with a view.

Insider’s Tip

Stop in on a Thursday for 12th Air Command’s famous Drag Nights, where you’ll hear divas joke, stomp and sing their way into your hearts, all for a small tip, of course.
