The Dolphin Tavern
South Philly dance club
A cross between a dive bar and a nightclub, The Dolphin is one of South Philly’s most famous nighttime hangouts. Before reopening in 2013, it was a legendary go-go bar that was a central hub of the city’s nightlife. Today, The Dolphin offers rotating beers, cocktails, and nightly dance parties with some of the region’s most famous DJs, drag queens, and international touring acts, including Yaeji, Washed Out, and Mija. The Dolphin is a welcoming and inclusive space where people can express themselves freely and feel comfortable, regardless of race, gender, and/or sexual identity.
