Hi guys – During an upcoming work trip in Philly I’ll have one night on my own, and I’m looking for input on solid craft and/or classic cocktails and a great burger. I’m staying at the Marriott Downtown, but I don’t mind a decent walk or short Uber ride. My free night will be on a Wednesday.

I appreciate creative craft cocktails as well as properly-made classics. Good atmosphere is a plus (speakeasy vibe is cool, as long as it doesn’t feel gimmicky). And I’m primarily a bourbon/rye kinda guy. As for burgers, I’m looking for something more on the “gourmet” end of the spectrum, but not necessarily a high-end establishment like a steakhouse. Just a place that puts a focus on good ingredients and produces a high-quality burger cooked to order. And great fries are a must!

Based on my research so far, I’m considering Franklin Mortgage, Hop Sing Laundromat, or 1 Tipping Place for cocktails. For burger, I’m considering Pub & Kitchen, Dandelion, and Monk’s Café. Any feedback on the places currently under consideration? Any places I should add to the list? Keep in mind I’ll be flying solo, so are all of these places conducive to eating/drinking alone? (some places make it more difficult than others; i.e. no seating at the bar).

Oh yeah – happy hour specials would also be nice, but not critical…food and drink quality trump discounted prices.
