“One of my faves in Philly”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

If you've never been to El Vez you must try it at least once. I'm from the west but when in town i make every effort to get into this place. Reservations are a must on weekends. Mexican with a delicious twist is their specialty but the atmosphere seals the deal. It's great. Service can be hit and miss but I've been luck most of the time.

“Great for drinks!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Probably the best place for drinks in the city.
I can't imagine a better way to start your night but grabbing a seat at their big round bar and enjoying a mochito or a jar of margaritas.
The colors just make you happy and the people are always interesting. And don't forget to try their guacamole!

“Best Drinks in Town!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

El Vez has an excellent drinks menu. I was recommended to go to El Vez for drinks before my dinner at Barbuzzo (It's across the street). The place has a nice vibe and the staff were friendly.
