1225RAW Sushi & Sake Lounge

A lot of sushi restaurants are either super expensive or they have bright fluorescent lights and sticky laminated menus that curl up at the corners. Fortunately, 1225 Raw is in neither of these camps. It feels kind of like an upscale lounge (with a back patio that has lots of large tables), but is reasonably priced and still condones your one friend’s sake bomb habit. Win-win.

Head to this Mexican place in Rittenhouse for a great after-work Happy Hour with $2 tacos, margaritas, and burritos dripping in crema.
