By Chef Amanda Jackson

Cocktails are arguably the dealbreaker when many of us build our itineraries for a fantastic night out. Philadelphia’s artistic pursuits go far beyond it’s vast and very Instagrammable collection of more than 2,000 outdoor murals. That creativity has spilled over into its nightlife in the form of handcrafted, artisanal cocktails that can only be described as a form of art itself.  Whether your pursuits consist of business or pleasure, enjoy a happy hour, night cap, or post-brunch libation at any one of these hotspots for the most creative drink menus in Philly!

Hop Sing Laundromat

@Jason P. | Yelp

I wish I could tell you more about this place, but the mystery is what truly makes Hop Sing Laundromat special.  Shrouded in secrecy, the website states that the venue never intended to advertise.  No phones or cameras are allowed inside.  Just trust me and the thousands of others who have walked through those iron gates and stepped back in time.
