Best Change of Pace

Beatnik Bar and Restaurant

2101 Maryland Ave., (215) 870-2839

When the guys who ran Bohemian Coffee House announced they were opening a bar called Beatnik, we started to hear murmurs that, based on the sometimes-lackadaisical service at the coffee shop, it might take months. Instead, it opened immediately and inside, the service is super-fast and super-friendly. We loved Bohemian, which has since closed, and its laid-back vibe, but we really, really love Beatnik, not least because we like to drink our coffee at work and our drinks in public. Plus, the food is better. And the bartenders, Grant Shprintz and Steve Carson, can both make a mean drink and are down for a good conversation.
