Five Fun Things To Do In Northern Liberties
Northern Liberties has no shortage of action. Its streets are lined with various bars, hip restaurants, and fun small businesses. Without getting deep into the food and drink options (there are TOO MANY good picks), here are a few fun recommendations worth experiencing in the neighborhood.
Also called The Schmidt’s Commons, the epicenter of NoLibs is The Piazza. Experience an 80,000 square foot, European-style open-air plaza surrounded by boutiques, restaurants, and galleries. Check out a Sixers playoff game on their 400 square-foot LED screen or enjoy a free concert on their 800 square-foot stage. The events and goings-on are seemingly endless year after year at The Piazza.
Tucked away in a corner of The Piazza, you’ll find The Cove. A stunning getaway hidden in the middle of a major city, The Cove features a gorgeous pool, an indoor spa, a health club, and outdoor kitchens. Nearby residents need not travel far for a little slice of paradise here!
In a neighborhood with a lot of concrete, Liberty Lands is a welcome green diversion in the heart of Northern Liberties. Features include a community garden, a playground, a stage for community events, and a picnic area. During the summer they run a free movie series, screening a variety of independent films!
Back in the day, you had to go out of your way to find a decent bowling alley in Philadelphia. Enter North Bowl in 2006, a super hip bowling alley complete with a bar, arcade games, and pool tables. The success of this establishment created a renaissance for people getting their roll on in Philly.
Yards Brewing Company
Nowadays, craft beer is an absolute powerhouse in Philadelphia but there was a time when all of our breweries were closed down. Yards is the spot that re-opened the floodgates in 1994. Now nationally known and appreciated, check out the spot that ignited our beer revolution!
