As Philadelphia’s first urban winery, intimate music venue, restaurant/bar, and private event space, City Winery pairs the culinary with the cultural experience while encouraging fans to indulge their senses. Guests can soak in nationally touring performers, wine education, or friendly gatherings while savoring globally-influenced, wine-focused, and locally sourced cuisine along with award-winning varietals made in the heart of their city.
Opening weekend welcomed the likes of Emmylou Harris, the Mountain Goats, and Josh Ritter all for sold out performances. The lineup continues with big name acts like Elle Varner (Jan 17), Phillip Phillips (Jan 25), and Sinead O’Connor for two sold out shows in April (Apr. 4 +5)
City Winery’s “wine-inspired” menu lets guests enjoy offerings like a variety of Flatbreads or their take on a Philly classic - The City Winery Cheesesteak - with chopped beef steak, red wine sauce, smoked gouda, banana peppers and fried onions on a fresh, house-made roll. City Winery also recently launched weekend brunch which includes specials such as the “Wine Maker’s Breakfast” platter, Chicken & Waffles, and build your own Mimosas.
As the newest location to open, Philadelphia joins seven other locations including Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Boston, Washington DC, Hudson Valley (opening 2020), and New York City. The original NYC City Winery was founded in 2008 by CEO Michael Dorf (formerly of the Knitting Factory) and will be reopening in 2020 at their new location along the Hudson River at Pier 57. There are also 5 offsets run by the company: City Vineyard at Pier 26, Rockefeller Center, City Winery Chicago at the Riverwalk, City Winery Greenway in Boston, and City Winery Hudson Valley. This year, Michael Dorf published his first book, Indulge Your Senses: Scaling Intimacy in a Digital World. See www.citywinery.com for more details.
