The newly completed City Winery Philadelphia includes two performance venues, including a 300-seat intimate concert hall. The 150-seat restaurant will serve locally sourced dishes crafted by Executive Chef, Jason Heim.
The late summer opening of the Fashion District of Philadelphia nixes any notion that malls are dead and instead places a solid bet that shoppers simply want to shop – in person. The just-opened City Winery Philadelphia is holding an ace in its hand as it debuts the city’s first-ever local urban winery, restaurant, private event space and live music venue. Now, denizens and tourists can relax and refuel while enjoying the amenities that City Winery Philadelphia’s extensive menu — and it’s even more impressive music performance line-up – offers.
Founder and CEO of City Winery, Michael Dorf was all smiles as he greeted guests to the 10th and Filbert Street location, the seventh venue in the nation. He celebrated the moment Jewish wedding style by crushing a napkin covered glass with his right foot, as guests shouted, “Mazel tov!” and “Congratulations!”
“We’re excited about Philadelphia because it is such a great culinary city with a deep passion for culture and entertainment. The combination of what we are offering feels like a home run,” said Dorf in a statement.
The newly completed location includes two performance venues, including a 300-seat intimate concert hall. The 150-seat restaurant will serve locally sourced dishes crafted by Executive Chef, Jason Heim, and house-made wines, crafted with grapes carefully sourced from acclaimed vineyards on the West Coast.
City Winery Philadelphia has announced upcoming performances from well-known artists like Josh Ritter, Emmylou Harris, the Mountain Goats, and Macy Gray. Other upcoming shows include Philadelphia’s own Bilal, Eric Hutchinson, Raheem DeVaughn, Jon McLaughlin and many more.
The main entrance to the location is at the corner of 10th and Filbert Street (or, for GPS purposes, 990 Filbert Street), with hours of operation being 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
