24 Hours in Philadelphia

What better way to kick off this beautiful weather than a fabulous weekend spent exploring Philadelphia’s amazing restaurant and art scene. We collaborated with our team to help you navigate those darling cobblestone streets. Here’s how to do 24 hours in Philadelphia right.

Rescue Spa

Kick off the weekend with a relaxing treatment at Philadelphia’s top spa, Rescue Spa. Using natural and botanical products alongside the latest in modern technology any treatment you pick here will be an extraordinary experience. Enjoy your visit to Rescue Spa among bespoke furniture, art and luxurious materials that create an environment that invite you to unwind. 

Enswell Cafe

After your relaxing treatment get your caffeine fix from Enswell. Café by day and cocktail bar by night, Enswell pulls inspiration from European cafes and is an inviting space to drink coffee, enjoy a meal with friends or a cocktail. 

Barnes Foundation

Next stroll through the Barnes where you can immerse yourself in an eclectic collection of art and décor. The Barnes houses an extraordinary number of masterpieces from the works of Renoir, Cezanne and Matisse that you won’t find anywhere else.

After an afternoon well spent admiring the Barnes collection, you’ll soon be ready for dinner. Make sure you reserve a spot in Suraya’s stunning garden in advance. The beautiful outdoor oasis at this award-winning restaurant is a popular spot during the warmer months. The tasting menu is required on Saturdays which we believe is the most enjoyable way to dine here. You’ll be loaded up with delicious Lebanese dishes, and you’ll never want to leave. 

Suraya Garden

On Sunday morning kick off your day with a delicious breakfast at Bloomsday café. Come for an inviting cup of coffee and say for their assortment of pastries and savory breakfast dishes. Get there an early and save time for the Headhouse Square Market directly across from the restaurant. You can explore local food vendors, jewelry and art collectors. A couple of our favorites are Mural City Cellars, and High street. Shop delicious treats to take back home with you, and find amazing pieces of art for your home, or for friends. Finding new art for your home can be fun and easy, but figuring out where to put it can be tricky. Give us a call and when you’re ready to display your collection the right way, and we’ll help you incorporate the pieces you love into your home. 

Bloomsday Cafe

Staying in the city for a little longer? There are many more magnificent spots to check out! May we suggest visiting Wm. Mulherin’s Sons, this old bottling facility has been converted into a restaurant and boutique hotel that doesn’t disappoint. Get a little retail therapy in nearby at VestigeToile or Occasionette. Stop at La Colombe, Persimmon or ReAnimator for a caffeine boost before you head home.
