Sunset Social is a bar on top of a parking garage in University City, and it has pretty much everything you could possibly want from a rooftop. Frozen cocktails? Check. Views of Center City and the Schuylkill? Yup. Astroturf that makes you feel like you’re in a field instead of literally on top of a parking garage? You bet. They also have some other great stuff, like a huge TV screen for mid-summer movie-watching and a short menu with things like burgers and fries - basically everything you could need for a few hours of drinking when it’s still light out.
