The Fillmore


Fun, industrial and located in our favorite neighborhood, Fishtown! The Fillmore is spacious, hip and offers a full bar for the show! The original venue was located in San Francisco, California where it became an iconic venue as it launched successful careers for The Grateful Dead, Santana, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and more! Now a Philadelphia hot spot!

Kimmel Center


Not the concert venue you might have been thinking of but it’s the  home to one of the “Big Five” symphony orchestras, The Philadelphia Orchestra. The venue is located in Center City on the corner of South Broad Street and Spruce Street. The Kimmel Center presents a variety of performing arts from classical to pop.

Since we have finally hit the Summer season, you can’t go wrong with a chill and fun outdoor concert venue at Penns Landing! With so much to do around it and great concerts that the venue holds, it’s one of the best! Check out bands like the Dirty Heads, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, and O.A.R this Summer!

You will find that the lower level holds the main performance venue and the upstairs is where your can order tasty dishes while still listening to live music. For families, check out World Live on Saturdays at lunch for their kid friendly, Peanut Butter and Jams program!
