1. FOOD + COFFEE
Some of the city’s best culinary gems are in Queen Village, from formal to casual, and old to new: Hungry Pigeon, Southwark, Royal Izakaya and Royal Tavern, to get a long list started. And then there’s the vibrant coffee scene, where Shot Tower, OX and Bloomsday cater to the most discerning of coffee drinkers.
We’ll just say it: Queen Village is one of the city’s most picturesque neighborhoods. The charm is laid on thick, with block after tree-lined block of historic homes with vibrant details and verdant window boxes.
3. ________ FRIENDLY
We hate to lump them together, but it’s true: Whether you have fur or human babies, Queen Village caters to both. There are tons of pocket parks for frolicking, pet- and kid-oriented boutiques and daycare options galore.
4. LIFESTYLE + SHOPPING
It’s not just Fabric Row anymore. Boutique shops like Bus Stop and Moon and Arrow sit alongside fitness spots like Three Queens Yoga and Sweat as well as salons and art studios galore.
5. PROXIMITY TO BOTH CC + POINTS SOUTH
Exploring the rest of the city is super convenient with a location that’s neatly sandwiched by Center City and East Passyunk. And for commuters, I95 is a hop, skip and a jump away.
