Philadelphia called late-night capital of the U.S.

    If we aren’t the city that never sleeps, maybe we’re the city that’d rather eat.

    When slumber seems like a yawn, Philadelphians head out for the excitement of music, munchies and microbrews, earning us Esquire’s honor of being the late-night capital of the country.

    Bars and restaurants in Old City, Northern Liberties, Chinatown, Rittenhouse, Queen Village, Point Breeze and other foodie neighborhoods get shout-outs, and our frenemies in Brooklyn got a little snub.
