The Olde Bar at Bookbinders
After one of Philadelphia’s classic restaurants closed, celebrity chef Jose Garces stepped in and opened The Olde Bar. Here you'll find modern takes on classic cocktails in a throwback setting. There's a lot of rye and sherry on the drink menu—both good matches for fried clams and the dimly lit, oldtime decor. Shooters (served with an oyster) come with Bloody Mary mix, absinthe, or Pimm's.
