As both Valentine’s Day and the equally lovable Galentine’s Day approach, we can’t help but feel grateful to be surrounded by exciting and unique date spots in our Fishtown, Northern Liberties and Olde Kensington neighborhoods.

Whether you’re looking to celebrate with friends or a special someone, the perfect place is just around the corner. These are just a few of our favorite spots that we think you’ll love.


Fishtown’s Suraya is a specialty, all-day market, café, restaurant and outdoor garden. The family-owned establishment serves both traditional and modern Levantine-inspired dishes for brunch, lunch and dinner. After your meal, take a seat in the beautiful garden, complete with a fire pit, and enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine while listening to songs by beautiful classical artists. It’ll be love at first sight when you see this space!


Impress your date by soaking up some art at InLiquid! Current exhibitions include Kirby Fredendall’s Horizon Lines, a painting exhibit that explores his relationship with the environment, ELECTRICITY: From the Mind of Mildred Greenberg, a collection of artwork from the late American visual artist, Going…Going…Gone, six artists’ reflections of their journeys and more. Whether you take your date or a group of friends, you’re sure to find something you love at this contemporary art gallery.
