PHLReview

Fabrika, a Fishtown spot serving up homemade pasta, often hosts live cabaret and jazz performances and drag brunches. The large dining space has a wrap-around balcony with a great view of the stage in the middle of the room, long lounge chairs and tables, lots of crystal chandeliers, and plenty of glowing purple light beaming down from the ceiling. While you’re here, you can order things rabbit ragu, squid ink linguine, small plates like citrusy shrimp and scallop ceviche, and a lamb shank for the table.

World Cafe Live

The food at World Cafe Live is pretty solid, with things like juicy lamb meatballs, and curry chicken sandwiches. And you can spend a casual weeknight or group hand being serenaded by some great live music.

Time is a Midtown Village jazz bar with a long wraparound bar with some great comfort food. It's an ideal date night spot when you want to hear some fantastic music.
