If you like people-watching, a diverse beer selection, and courteous service, go to Time. Live music at one bar. Cool juke box at the other.

Wonderful restaurant experience! Nice jazz music in the background that was just right. We had the mussels and cheese board for apps. The mussels were some of the best any of us have ever had! I had heard to order the Chefs choice but opted for the lamb. It was very good! Another in our party ordered the chicken and... More

If you happen to be in Philly and you like good cocktails, you just have to stop by here. Everything Rocco (the bartender) made was just fabulous. They have a great selection of whiskeys and scotches and they let you do a tasting flight which is fantastic if you're looking to try expensive bottles before buying them. The prices are... More

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
