Welcome to Fishtown
This trendy neighborhood, once an epicenter for the commercial fishing industry, offers a colorful exception to the city’s urban grid with its collection of narrow streets, beautiful row homes, and independently-owned businesses. Few neighborhoods have changed as quickly and dynamically as Fishtown, bringing an arts-and-dining renaissance that has breathed new life and energy into the area. From cocktail bars to dives, high-dining to quick-service stops, Fishtown has plenty to offer in the way of dining and entertainment. It is sometimes referred to as the “Brooklyn” of Philadelphia.
