  • 3rd floor
  • Retro inspired cocktails
  • Great food
  • Nice ambience

The Continental Midtown rooftop bar is one of the most popular places to hang out at around Rittenhouse Square. With three floors of wonderful atmosphere, good drinks and good food, Continental Midtown's rooftop lounge is really the icing on the cake.

Both indoor lounge and outdoor rooftop patio, the setting up here is somewhat of a 1960's living room. Have a seat in the stylish round bar, get cosy in the lounge sofa with fire place or head out to the wooden decked terrace, lush with trees in summer and warm thanks to heat lamps in winter.

The rooftop bar offers retro inspired and well-crafted cocktails, like the gin-based 'Firebird', along with a great selection of Martini's, beers and wines. There is also a large and impressive global food menu, with dishes perfect to share, ranging from Lump Crab Pad Thai to Cheesesteak Spring Rolls and Baja Shrimp Tacos. Served daily for lunch and dinner, and as brunch on weekends, the food might be best enjoyed on the lower floors, and then head up to the rooftop for pre- or post dinner cocktails.

With a lounge-vibrant ambience, Continental Midtown is a perfect place among the Philadelphia rooftop bars for fun and relaxing drinks with a group of friends.
