A surprise twist at Manatawny Still Works' South Philly tasting room: Flair bartending meets craft cocktails

1603 E. Passyunk Ave.,  267-519-2917, manatawnystillworks.com

    A surprise twist at Manatawny Still Works' South Philly tasting room: Flair bartending meets craft cocktails
    Ask anyone who's ever been burned, figuratively or literally, by a flaming shot: alcohol and pyrotechnics do not, as a general rule, make a great combination. And, yet, as I sit at the bar at Manatawny Still Works' South Philly tasting room, here comes the bartender wielding a blowtorch.

The Best Cocktail Bars in Philadelphia

Tod Wentz’s flagship on Passyunk Avenue is known for its creative cocktails and its late night industry crowd — and ultimately, the best thing about Townsend is that it’s a neighborhood spot that happens to have some of the best cocktails and French food in town. (1623 E Passyunk Ave; 267-639-3203)

If you can’t get into Laurel (and you probably can’t), you’ll enjoy its casual counterpart right next door just as much, thanks to its caviar service, inventive drinks, and sleek marble bar with gold fixtures. (1615 E Passyunk Ave; 267-858-0669)

This article has 31 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Queen Village’s premier cocktail bar, which was a pioneer in Philadelphia’s craft cocktail boom, is as good as ever, thanks to an excellent staff and cocktails that run the gamut from classic to experimental. (701 S 4th St,; 267-930-8538)

The former home of Bookbinder’s has been transformed into a classic cocktail bar by Jose Garces, which still serves up Bookbinder’s-style dishes like snapper soup and, of course, plenty of oysters. (125 Walnut St.; 215-253-3777)

When you step into 1 Tippling Place, you’ll feel like you’re in a particularly cozy living room, albeit one with excellent classic and reimagined cocktails. (2006 Chestnut St.; 215-665-0456)

...keep your phone in your pocket, and don’t miss the bar adorned with nickels. (1029 Race St....

One of Philadelphia’s oldest restaurants reopened in 2016 with a brand new redesign, a bold new cocktail program from Paul MacDonald, and an incredible dinner service, bringing it right back into the city’s top tier of bars. (261 S 21st St;  215-546-4232)

Joey Baldino’s private, members only club in the heart of South Philly isn’t currently accepting new members, so find a friend with one of those stamped little white cards, settle in at the bar, and order a Negroni — but don’t forget to bring cash. (1408 S 12th St.)

This Starr speakeasy is tucked behind El Rey, identified only by a sign with two red, crossed Rs hanging on Ranstead Street. If you can get a seat, opt for a dark corner booth and order the Bartender’s Choice. (2013 Ranstead St.; 215-563-3330)

This spot is certainly one of Philadelphia’s strangest bars — hidden away on the second floor of an Ethiopian restaurant in West Philly, Fiume offers a full and diverse cocktail list alongside a vast array of spirits in a relaxed, low-key atmosphere. (229 S 45th St.; 215-387-2424)

Chris Painter’s Fishtown restaurant gets plenty of (well-deserved) attention for its housemade pastas and pizzas, but don’t overlook its cocktail menu or its list of Italian amaro. (1355 N Front St.; 215-291-1355)

The standard for all Philadelphia distilleries, Philadelphia Distilling’s gorgeous tasting room is home to exceptional cocktails using the distillery’s homegrown spirits and local herbs, fruits, and even vegetables. (25 E Allen St.; 215-671-0346)

...open to anyone and serves some of the most creative (and well-named) cocktails around. (300 S Broad St.; 215-670-2302...

After honing his skills in several of Philadelphia’s best kitchens, Greg Vernick opened up his eponymous Rittenhouse Square restaurant to huge acclaim, but don’t overlook the bar — each and every cocktail will pair perfectly with one of their toasts. (2031 Walnut St.; 267-639-6644)

With a classic cocktail bar downstairs and a tiki bar upstairs, The Franklin contains multitudes, but after all this time, it still serves up some of the most inventive craft cocktails in the city. (112 S 18th St,; 267-467-3277)

Visit Paris without leaving Queen Village when you step into Good King Tavern, which boasts an impressive menu of classic cocktails alongside an excellent wine selection. (614 S 7th St.; 215-625-3700)

For a more casual feel, you can stop into a.bar for a cocktail and a dozen oysters, and when you’re ready for dinner, walk across the hall to a.kitchen to pair your second cocktail with their full dinner menu. (135 S 18th St,; 215-825-7030)

Located directly above Oyster House, Mission’s margaritas are made with everything from freshly squeezed lime juice to green juice to tamarind. (1516 Sansom St.; 215-383-1200)

Nicholas Elmi’s newest restaurant, located in the heart of Old City, offers up a selection of classic cocktails on a menu that denotes where, when, and by whom the cocktail was created — and it’s one of the only places in the city where you can find a Seelbach. (52 S 2nd St,; 267-606-6313)

Michael Schulson’s dark, sexy izakaya has several excellent cocktails, but don’t miss out on its namesake drink, a bourbon and rye Manhattan variation made with smoke staves. (120 S 13th St.; 215-631-3868)

Tod Wentz’s Spanish-inspired tapas bar boasts cocktails inspired by Madrid, Barcelona and beyond alongside traditional small plates like boquerones and patatas bravas. (1121 Walnut St.; 267-324-3014)

Jose Garces’ shrine to all things whiskey has one of the best old fashioneds in town, an outstanding burger to pair with it, and a whiskey shelf beyond your wildest dreams. (118 S 20th St.; 215-665-1088)

This sleek Midtown Village bar offers excellent cocktails made with local, fresh ingredients alongside creative vegan fare. (131 S 13th St.; 267-758-5372)

Philadelphia’s premier vegan restaurant has plenty to offer besides its outstanding plant-based dishes — don’t miss out on its cocktail list, which utilizes many of the same fruits and vegetables as the dinner menu. (1221 Locust St.; 215-320-7500)

Named after the ghostly bartender in The Shining, Fishtown’s Lloyd specializes in small-batch whiskeys, inventive cocktails, and bar food to pair with both. (529 E Girard Ave; 215-425-4600)

An Old City favorite for two decades, Fork’s cocktail list may be brief, but it’s carefully considered — and its skilled bar staff can whip up anything you’d like to pair with your meal. (306 Market St.; 215-625-9425)

Marc Vetri’s casual Italian eatery offers Negronis and other classic Italian cocktails alongside its famous cacio e pepe. (412 S 13th St.; 215-732-2647)

...Manhattans and a full dinner menu. Either way, you’ll find your new favorite cocktail. (1850 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy; 215-963-2788...

Stephen Starr’s Rittenhouse steakhouse is famous for its $100 cheesesteak, but don’t overlook its cocktail menu, especially its signature Manhattan. (237 S 18th St.; 215-732-7560)

Stop into Michael Solomonov’s Jewish diaspora for simple yet creative cocktails utilizing amaro, sherry, and fresh ingredients. (1623 Sansom St.; 215-867-0088)

Marcie Turney & Valerie Safran’s most recent addition is this retro American diner, which features a local whiskey named after Marcie Turney’s grandfather (Bud’s Best Bourbon), Mad Men-inspired cocktails, and seasonal frosé. (1234 Locust St.; 215-546-2220)

Bar Hygge is best known for its in-house brewery, but it also features in-house draft cocktails alongside classics like Sazeracs and Old Fashioneds. (1720 Fairmount Ave; 215-765-2274)

Vedge’s casual counterpart in Rittenhouse Square offers up creative cocktails using ingredients like coconut water and mustard. (126 S 19th St.; 215-278-7943)
