1. Grey Social 132 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19106 (Old City)

Situated along a cobblestoned stretch of Chestnut St, Grey's a throwback cocktail lounge that's undergone a two-year renovation process resulting in an old-timey drinking joint with walnut wall panels mixed w/ vintage wallpaper with wrap-around leather banquettes and an intricate three-tier chandelier hung from the exposed brick'd, high-celinged rear lounge, all highlighting the building's past as both a Prohibition-era speakeasy and a teahouse allegedly once owned by the mistress of Ben Franklin, who pioneered being all about the Benjamins.
