I think most people can agree that Philadelphia’s bars are diverse and offer unique experiences at each location. After a long day, sometimes the best thing you can do is sit back and relax with a glass of wine. Though you could do that at home, I recommend checking out a few of the wine bars in town. Many of them have a wide selection of wines to try and even small plates if you’re feeling a bit hungry. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of my favorite wine bars.
Whether you want to visit a spot with global varieties or a more local spot, these wine bars have it all. Better yet, some of the spots on this list also have bottle shops so you can purchase a whole bottle to take home with you. Keep reading to learn more about each spot!
