Let’s talk about Fishtown Social, shall we? I went for a happy hour on a Friday a couple of weeks ago. It was one of those gorgeous spring days that tortures you when the temperature plummets the next week. The Broad St. Broad and I were catching up at the bar when I just suddenly felt like it was a Sunday afternoon.
I mean, why? The sun was streaming through the windows, the place has this really clean white/grey/black decor that reflected the light in such a way it felt… ethereal. Everyone was engaged in hushed conversation; not like whispers, but just quietly respectful.
When you think about it, there’s not that many wine bar in PHL so perhaps this type of social is what happens at wine bars. It was just different because instead of a dark/sexy ambiance, Fishtown Social is bright and refreshing.
Speaking of refreshing, I had the Weingut Martinshof ’14 and the spicy white bean dip. So good. I don’t want to tell you what to do, but you should really go here. Not on a night where you’re in a rush and are running around in typical east coast fashion. No, you need to come here to stop and check in with yourself or your bestie.
Especially in the summer when the light is as good as the wine.
