America's Best Cities for Singles
No. 11 Philadelphia
Voters have sometimes dismissed Philly as a sweatshirts-and-cheesesteaks kind of town, ranking it higher for both sports-crazed fans and street food. But the City of Brotherly Love’s bar scene made a huge jump this year, from a buzzkill No. 27 to this slot just outside the top 10. The Midtown Village area (from Market to Pine) is a good bet—from the old-school Fergie’s, with Yuengling and other microbrews, to the funky Bohemian Absinthe Lounge above Time Restaurant.
