Philadelphia isn’t much of a late-night city, but that doesn’t mean late-night eaters can’t eat well. The after-midnight food scene goes beyond Philly's beloved diners and 24-hour cheesesteak joints to a wide range of cuisines in bars and restaurants, taco shops, gastropubs — even the cocktail bars are getting into the act.
Those looking to undo damage from earlier in the night might look to the dumplings at Dim Sum House, the Southern fare at Khyber Pass Pub, or even the oh-so-juicy burger at Fountain Porter. Looking for more elegant plates for late-night dining? Turn to the gorgeous bar snacks at Southwark, French fare at The Good King Tavern, or even vegan and vegetarian options like the “crab” cakes at Charlie Was a Sinner.
Here are 21 late-night places — that stay open between midnight and 4 a.m. — to explore on Philly dining scene.
