Call it SWCC, call it “G-Ho” (or please don’t), the south west area of Center City in Philadelphia has been on a slow but steady upswing of late. Old grungy bars have given way to some great gastropubs, places you can enjoy a damn fine meal along with good beer, wine and cocktails.
If you happen to find yourself in the area, check out one of my Top 5 picks for bars and gastropubs in SWCC. I like them all, though probably Resurrection Ale House is my absolute favorite. You just can’t beat that fried chicken when they have it on the menu. YUM.
