2)   Check out Philadelphia’s Restaurant Scene

  • If you’re a foodie, Philadelphia is a great place to be. It’s also a great way to meet other singles checking out the food scene. Our personal favorites are: Stephen Starr’s El Vez and Cuba Libre (bonus: salsa dancing at night!).

3)   Attend the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s latest exhibit

  • Sometimes a picture says a thousand words. The Museum of Art has world renowned pieces that art enthusiasts and novices alike can enjoy. Spend the afternoon walking the galleries. You never know who you will run into!

4)   Visit one of Philadelphia’s Dog Parks

  • Take your pup over to the park and let him or her handle the introductions. Striking up a conversation with someone new is a little easier when you have man’s (or woman’s) best friend by your side. Enjoy the fresh air along with your dog while you mingle with other canine lovers! Don’t have a pet? No problem. Philadelphia’s parks are frequented by plenty of singles --- those looking for a workout and pet owners alike.

5)   Take a class in something new such as photography, drawing, a new language, cooking, etc.

8)   Hang out at the right bars

  • Yes, we know this one is obvious however, it can sometimes be tricky to find the bar fits what you’re looking for.

Some of our favorite bars for singles in Philadelphia include Parc, Buddakan and Continental Midtown.
