There are all kinds of restaurants and coffee shops and salons here. Basically anything you need, they have and they have multiple options for.

We participated in the Northern Liberties Food Tour through XperienceDays. We did not know what to expect, but being foodies we decided it was worth a try. I must say, it was a wonderful afternoon. Great food for a great price, good company and our tour guide, Adam, was awesome! There are quite a few little gems in this area... More

Northern liberties is ok. I live at the piazza Schimdt and I get the good, the bad and the ugly. The apartments are priced sky high, on average $1900 for a two bedroom, but they are new, beautiful and very spacious. Entertainment is cool, I'm more into hip hop and R&b/soul ANd this neighborhood does not cater to that at... More

I love Northern Liberties. There are so many different bars, clubs & restaurants to choose from. Parking can be a bit of an issue but sometimes you can get lucky. I'd like to see them add some more upper class places to this area though!

What's not to love about this quaint little gem in Northern Liberties? My favorite day in Northern Liberties consists of coffee at Honey's Sit'n Eat, then walking around the Piazza, a beer at Standard Tap, and tapas at Bar Ferdinand.

Just north of center city is No Libs. Home to a lot of good restaurants like N3rd and The Standard Tap. If you walk north on 2nd street, you will run into The Piazza (?) just below Girard Ave. Shops and restaurants are there also. Neighborhood is safer than it used to be but remember you are in a big... More

Northern Liberties is a great gem. Love the shoppes and the restaurants. I don't get here that often as it is "off the beaten path" relative to my travels; but I am very happy this gem exists!

Northern Liberties was one of the industrial areas of Philadelphia, today many former factories and warehouses are being redeveloped into condos as are many new developments as well. It has the potential to be a nice area but is still very far off. Much of Northern Liberties is still abandoned, run down, and dirty. Save the time and spend it... More

I spent the day with the Kennett Square Area Newcomers Club members (Wed, Oct 27) on one of our "Adventurers" trips touring and eating our way through the Northern Liberties area with our guides from "City Food Tours" (Robert and Jamie). What a wonderful experience! We were awed at this area of Philly that was unknown to most of us.... More
