Art In The Age is a weird concept that’s half bar and half store, which is actually pretty brilliant, because when else are you more likely to buy something than when you’re a few cocktails deep? Think of it as real-life Amazon, except instead of waking up to seven Prime packages on your doorstep, you’ll find yourself in a cab at 6pm with four shopping bags full of artisan beef jerky and those big circular ice cube molds. It’s generally not super crowded, and it holds normal commercial store hours (aka it closes around 7 most nights), but it’s a good place to take a friend from out of town when you want to walk around Old City and grab a few drinks, but not get too drunk to see the Liberty Bell afterwards.
