El Techo is 11 floors up from Condesa, one of our favorite new restaurants in 2019, and it’s run by the same people. The rooftop bar looks like it was airlifted in from Miami, with tropical plants, bright tiles, and lounge furniture everywhere. It also has a retractable roof, which means it even feels kind of like Miami, if you can ignore the bleak gray winterscape happening outside. Since Condesa does all the drinks and food at El Techo, you can expect to see a lot of agave-based cocktails and tacos with homemade masa tortillas. It also means that everything’s delicious, which isn’t something you can say about most Philly rooftop bars.

Irwin’s image

A night at Irwin’s means you can dine inside or on the rooftop of South Philly's Bok Building. They serve some of the best Italian food in the city along with tasty seasonal cocktails and natural wines.
