Where to Party This Mardi Gras in Philadelphia

What a wild ride these last few weeks have been. No need to slow down now—continue the party this Mardi Gras at some of Philly's best bars. As with any festive holiday, Philadelphia has you covered with a plethora of options to keep the gluttony going. Here are the best spots to let the good times roll this Fat Tuesday, February 13, before you have to give up soda for a month. 

Sip on $8 frozen hurricanes at the all-weather lounge above Philadelphia’s beautiful Parkway all day on Fat Tuesday. (1849 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy.)
 
Head to Manayunk for a one of the biggest Louisiana-style parties of the year. Bourbon Blue is offering two open bar packages starting at $25 along with a buffet, live music, beads and masks, drink specials and more! Get your tickets here. (2 Rector St.)
 
Who needs Bourbon Street when we have Sansom Street? Listen to live music by the Hoppin' John Orchestra at this spot from 7 PM to midnight while enjoying drink and food specials like hurricanes, Abita, crawdads, and jambalaya. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased ahead of time. (1421 Sansom St.)
 
Hit up South Street for one of the wildest nights of the year. All day drink specials include $6 hurricanes, $5 Magic Hat cans, cajun jambalaya, gumbo and crawfish popcorn. (344 South St.)
 
Party it up in Fishtown with $5 hurricanes, $5 house made beignets, Abita beer specials, traditional cajun/creole food specials, music, complementary beads and feather mask. Oh, and it’s still taco Tuesday so expect $1 tacos as well. (1235 E Palmer St.)
 
For a more relaxing Mardi Gras head to Grad Hospital for special $9 hurricanes and $7 beignets with whipped cream. (1708 Lombard St.)
 
Visit Rex 1516 for a Mardi Gras Citywide which includes a sinful King’s Cake burger (beef patty, cooper cheddar, bacon, lettuce, house-made pickles, King’s Cake roll) and a pint of Newbold and a shot of Jim Beam Devil’s Cut for $17. They’ll also be serving up a Falernum Hurricane for $8. (1516 South St.)
