Ladies and gentlemen, pull up a stool and brace for a very special announcement: Eater's third annual Cocktail Week starts right this very second. From now until Friday evening, we'll be shining a light on the hot new cocktail bars of this city and the people that make them tick, as well as the beloved older establishments and the characters that inhabit them. There will be maps, happy hour deals, dive bar devotion, stories from behind the bar, and so much more.
This is our first theme week on the newly redesigned website, so we hope you'll take advantage of the new Eater Philly forum to share your own cocktail thoughts throughout the week. Please don't hesitate to strike up a conversation on the best and worst cocktail trends, your favorite drinks that don't make it onto our maps, or anything else that comes to mind. (Of course, if you prefer, you can always send your feedback and suggestions via the tipline.)
