Philly’s Iconic Dolphin Tavern Is Reopening With Some New Changes

Philly’s iconic dive bar and dance club, Dolphin Tavern, is finally reopening! But things might look a little different this time around…

While being closed for so long because of the pandemic, Dolphin Tavern owners have decided to use this opportunity and revamp themselves. Dolphin Tavern has always been an institution in the Philadelphian nightlife so it is very exciting news that it is reopening with new features that will make this place even more impressive and appealing than before.

Indeed, they have made three major changes to the venue, and menu. Starting with creating a food menu with one dollar tacos all summer long! The kitchen will be open from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will have other items like nachos, chips and salsa, guac, quesadillas, and burritos. Next, they have added a new sound system and stage to host even more live entertainment than before, like bands, DJs, and their famous themed parties. Finally, they are implementing a new happy hour with one of the best drink deals in the city like $4 margaritas! In addition to these new elements, Dolphin Tavern is also bringing back the things you love most about them like the disco-vibe dance floor, theme parties, Abba night, painted murals, quickie wall art, and so much more!

“We are thrilled to announce the re-opening of one of South Philly’s most beloved dance clubs,” said FCM’s Special Events Director Neina Langford. “During the shut-down, Dolphin Tavern’s team was working behind the scenes to add to the experience with a new food menu and kitchen, new stage, more programming and other surprises. As a welcome back, we are offering a $1 taco menu for the remainder of the summer. Nothing says summer, celebration and feel-good vibes quite like dollar tacos to add to the party.”
Dolphin Tavern is open Wednesday to Saturday from 4:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., with food service from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Where: 1539 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia PA 19147
