Philadelphia, PA - On June 19, shake up some gin and vermouth with some ice and add a lemon twist. It’s National Martini Day! Where to Celebrate National Martini Day in Philadelphia.
Red Owl Tavern — This progressive American tavern, perched on the country’s most historic intersections at 5th and Chestnut, boasts one of the city’s top bar programs thanks to Lead Bartender Kyle Darrow. The pewter-topped bar offers an absolutely stellar selection of brown spirits. But that doesn’t mean Darrow and his team isn’t equally adroit at crafting classic clear cocktails. For National Martini Day, Tuesday June 19, Red Owl will serve $5 Sipsmith Gin and Titos Vodka martinis all day! Cheers to that. Enjoy indoors or outside overlooking Independence Mall. http://www.redowltavern.com
The Twisted Tail — Headhouse Square’s Southern-inspired restaurant and “Juke joint” hosts a daily “Social Hour” that offers some of the city’s best happy hour deals — smack in the middle of the quaint, cobblestone-laden neighborhood between Society Hill and the South Street district. Manhattan Monday anyone? For National Martini Day, however, owner George Reilly has instructed his team to offer $5 gin and vodka martinis for this week’s “Tuesday Dealer’s Choice” beverage of the day at happy hour. Stop in for a crisp martini, served up with olives or a twist. http://thetwistedtail.com

Where better to indulge after work on National Martini Day? The stunning bar features a towering back bar instillation made up of locally crafted Stateside Vodka and Bluecoat American Dry Gin — just for a little inspiration. Come back on Friday when Ocean Prime’s new happy hour offering Stop & Sip the Rosé brings half-price glasses of Veuve Clicquot Rosé from 4:30-6:30pm in addition to regular Happy Hour programming. https://www.ocean-prime.com/locations-menus/philadelphia
