Philadelphia, PA 19107
- Yup, you gotta go down that narrow alley. Not a mistake. All the way to the end. Go on now.
- Follow the sign to walk down the alley, but hold your breath.
- Sampans greenhoused booze yard is the perfect setting for a warm-weather happy hour.
- Walk down the rape-alley. No fear.
- Down a little alley off 13th lies one of the best happy hours in Philly.
- Has a speakeasy feel mainly due to the fact that you have to walk down a narrow shady alley to find it! AWESOME!
- Get here for happy hour. The $2 apps are awesome.
- Sure, it's gimmickysmall plates, cocktails, graffiti muralsbut the open-air patio at Sampan has the goods to back up the shtick, including pillow-y boa buns and an ever-changing list of drinks.
- Took forever to be acknowledged...so we left. Seems pretentious. No signature cocktails.
- The scorpion bowls are the best value for the money.
- Great atmosphere. Even with colder weather, overhead heaters make it so cozy. Cucumber margarita scorpion bowl is soooo tasty (although the alcohol potency is questionably low)
- Thought it would be hipster or punk, but a nice normal crowd. Has a few but high quality craft brews. Food is delicious, but small portions. 1 of the more unique setups/locations you'll ever run into
- Scorpion bowls are fantastic. You'll thank me later, if you remember to
- It was really crowded and stuffy and the drinks were expensive. It's a neat little bar and it's definitely a place you should visit at least once as a Philadelphian but I don't know that I'll be back.
- Good cocktails, but the beer selection and prices could be better. Sometimes its way too crowded and loud
- Loud outdoor patio behind Sampan that's often a mob scene but great to stop for a beer on a bar crawl. Small plates from Sampan during happy hour are reason enough to stop by.
- Hidden in an alleyway and is quite edgy
- Wiggle your way down a narrow alley to this small bar nestled behind Sampan. A young crowd, Kanye and Outkast blasting over the stereo, and a wall covered in street art give Graffiti Bar...
- They serve nice fried rice. Tequila cocktails are well made.
