Harp & Crown


1525 Sansom St, Philadelphia
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

For some, Harp and Crown is a casual-yet-pricey dinner spot where you can get $8 beers, $12 glasses of wine, and $30 entrees like a pork chop milanese and a juicy dry-aged burger. At the same time, it’s also a place where you can head downstairs and get in a few games of bowling while you avoid running into your ex (since the bar upstairs is one of the more popular Happy Hour spots in town). 

The Samson Street spot has a long 32-seat bar and serves small plates like lamb meatballs, spicy chicken wings, and wood-fired pizzas–which you can get for half-off during the hours of 4-7pm. Outside of the appetizers, they also have a raw bar, pastas like spaghetti bolognese, and a perfectly charred and citrusy seared scallop. Plus, with antique decor like old framed black-and-white photos and throwback leather booths, it feels like somewhere that got dressed up for a prohibition era-themed Halloween and decided to stick with the costume.
