We got into Philly on a Sunday night! While looking for food and music, we realized most places close at 10 if not earlier!! We walked up on "Time" and it was such a good decision!! They serve a full menu late! Live Jazz, LATE!!! The waitress was wonderful and the food was "descent"!! My Burger was DELISH and the... More

This bar/restuarant is cool and funky. Decorated with time pieces of every kind and description, some working some not made for an interesting evening. Live music and an open mic night on Tuesday made an evening meal special. We opted for the taster menu although not cheap it was delicious, outstanding was the shrimp appertiser. A wonderful atmosphere with really... More

We did the Prohibition Tour of Philadelphia and this was the first stop so I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked there. I will tell you that the bartender for our pre tour drink was out of this world friendly and the manager couldn't have been nicer and very informative. Great Flatbreads too.

I love live music and Time has great jazz musicians playing there, at least on the Friday and Saturday nights I went, while visiting Philly. The bar can get crowded but the atmosphere is great and lively. You can't go wrong drinking whiskey and listening to great music.

We stopped here for drinks while staying across the street at the Holiday Inn Express Mid-town. They have a huge selection of hard stuff and good selection of beer. We didn't have any food during this visit as we had eaten earlier. We sat at the bar which is made of a rich warm wood that looks like a million... More

Great tasting food and no one left hungry...very large portions. The singer and keyboard were too loud for any conversation. Great beer selection.

My husband and I just stumbled across this bar one night when we were walking the streets of Philly during a business trip. We heard the music and decided to check it out. BEST DECISION EVER! They were having an Open Mic Night that was incredible! The house band backed up anyone who wanted to jam. There were singers, guitar... More

I met a few friends out on a Thursday night for drinks at Time. There was a solid jazz group, no cover and tasty cocktails as well as $3 Miller High Life. The music that night was mostly improv and a range of styles. An order of fries is perfect while drinking. Fresh, thin and hot.
