847 N. 3rd St., 215/922-1035,
Considered by many to be the city’s best live jazz venue, this intimate space is in the former cafeteria of a 19th-century brewery. The bar/restaurant has attracted jazz enthusiasts from the city and beyond for more than 20 years, making it one of the first and longest-standing entertainment venues in the now-happening Northern Liberties neighborhood.<
While the music is certainly the Ortlieb’s chief draw, tasty, reasonably priced Cajun American food is also served.
