The Frankford

Fishtown, Philadelphia

Before you run up the steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and throw your fist into the air, drop your bags at The Frankford. Welcome to Fishtown. Receiving its name from the occupation of its original residents, this neighborhood was the starting point of Philadelphia’s vibrant art and culinary scene. Everything from five-star restaurants to food trucks can be found for those with curious taste buds. Cozy up on a patio, beer in hand, and enjoy an indie band that is passing through town. Galleries on Frankford Avenue open their doors every first Friday of the month, letting inspiration flow out into the streets enticing those passing by to stop and admire the art. Sitting right outside of downtown, The Frankford is the perfect resting place outside of the hustle and bustle. Hop on the El, one of America’s oldest elevated subways, and you’ll be anywhere in the city within a few minutes. Make a reservation at Suraya (we recommend the fresh pita and hummus). Or grab some takeout and enjoy dinner on the rooftop watching the sun fall over Downtown Philadelphia. This hip destination is guaranteed to leave you with some lasting memories.
