Where To Celebrate Thanksgiving Eve In Philadelphia











To most, the night before Thanksgiving is not only “Thanksgiving Eve,” but it’s better known as THE biggest drinking night of the year. Long lost friends and family come together before the holiday to spend time with one another in the best way possible making a toast to the things they are most grateful for.

We’ve compiled a list of our favorite Philly spots to celebrate. Check out each spot’s specials for Wednesday evening.

Cuba Libre 10 S. 2nd St.

If you’ve never been to Cuba, just step into this Old City restaurant to get a taste of Old Havana in the 1950s. The restaurant is known to transform into a nightclub on the weekends with the best Latin entertainment. This Wednesday, they are spicing it up with a “Turkey Turnup” featuring special guest DJ Big Lex. Doors open at 10:30 p.m. Learn how to get on the guestlist with complimentary admission here.

The Dolphin Tavern — 1539 S Broad St.

With a happy hour that starts at 9 p.m., we love the $1 tecates and well drinks specials at The Dolphin. The party doesn’t stop there though. Popular DJ Dance Parties hosted by both local DJs and international touring acts. This Wednesday, they are taking it back to a (free) 2000’s Rap Party with Sweat Daddy kicking-off at 10 PM. Learn more here.

Franky Bradley’s — 1320 Chancellor St.

Begin your night with a casual dinner downstairs, and then make your way upstairs for a night to remember under the disco ball! As the former lesbian bar, Sisters Nightclub, this venue has been transformed into Center City’s “American Medieval” that welcomes everyone. For Thanksgiving Eve, DJ Ian St Laurent will be spinning all night beginning at 9 p.m. Cover is $5 at the door.

Kung Fu Necktie 1250 N Front St.

If you’re not into Top 40 or trending EDM music, Kung Fu Necktie is a great spot to enjoy  bands’ original live music. Located under the El in Fishtown, this 90s-vibe bar offers great tunes and a typically-flooded dance floor. Buy tickets for Thanksgiving Eve to see Formula 5, The Royal Noise and Native Maze. Doors open at 10 p.m.

Silk City Diner & Lounge — 435 Spring Garden St.

Although it may look like an old time diner by day, this place knows how to get down and party. On Thanksgiving Eve, American rapper, Biz Markie, and DJ Mike Nyce will help you take over the dance floor. Drink specials include $2 Miller High Life and Stoli. Learn more and grab your tickets for the event presented by Flygirrl.
