Although parties aren’t really an option right now (not to say that a Netflix binge with a bowl of ice cream solo isn’t a party), there still are ways to unwind with some libations in a safe way. In the City of Sisterly Love, a few top spots are offering boozy pickup and delivery to help make this time just a little less chaotic and Metro has the scoop on all of the spirited specials.
Art in the Age
Although their shop is temporarily closed in Old City, the one-of-a-kind tasting room, home bar supply and bottle shop still has its website up and running. Philadelphians can peruse through a variety of products that are ideal especially during this time period with plenty of options for your own home bar kit and libations to practice with (syrups, bitters, shrubs, glassware, books, gift cards and more). Who knows, maybe you’ll discover your hidden bartending abilities during your quarantine? Art in the Age is offering 20% off every purchase, including all gift cards. Patrons can use the code “LOCALLOVE20” to redeem.

We can all use some time to wine down, and Jet Wine Bar has you covered on that front. The South Street hotspot is offering an enticing variety of natural wines, reds, whites and rosés from their wine to-go selection, available from 3 to 9 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays.
