Awesome steaks, great beer selections, and a friendly upbeat vibe. Sit at the bar, near the bar, in the dining doom, or at a sidewalk table.

Nice light fare place in South Philly. We had the Pho French Dip & Pork Belly Sandwich both of which were delicious. Cocktails were good but not noteworthy. There were two interesting drinks on their menu but they didn't have an ingredient so we couldn't...More

Really nice atmosphere, good happy hour (especially the $2 yuenglings). The food is delicious- I had sliders. The bartender was friendly enough, although a bit snappy. I will definitely be returning for happy hour and possibly their quiz night!

SoWe Bar and Kitchen is a casual American bistro offering creative comfort food in warm, welcoming setting. Proprietors Nancy Law and Troy Barton have designed SoWe to be the neighborhood's "home away from home", knowing that Rob Miracle's seriously good bistro fare will draw the Center City gastro-crowd to "South West Ceneter City Philly". Great snacks, burgers, salads and large plates are served by a friendly, knowledgeable staff. An extensive bar selection, wines by the glass and craft beers on tap and by the bottle. Kitchen is open late night. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday.
