The Continental

The setting is 1964, the décor sleek and retro-futuristic, and the patrons trendy and chic. This is the place to go for a martini (or two), with a raved-about selection of signature drinks ranging from the classic to the innovative. An excellent array of international tapas complements the flavorful cocktails, with such popular treats as the Lobster Mashed Potatoes and Seared Tuna with Mushroom Risotto. Whether it’s happy hour, Sunday brunch, or another night on the town, Continental is a place to see and be seen.

Best happy hour spot in the city  

Great place for happy hour! Both the continental in old city and the continental II on 18th are great spots. Yummy appetizer menu and large martini menu makes continental a philly local favorite!
