Philadelphia's Hop Sing Laundromat Scored a Spot on Esquire's List of the 27 Best Bars in America

by Drink Philly on Jun 5, 2019 in Roundups

Philadelphia's favorite and strictest speakeasy, Hop Sing Laundromat, made Esquire's list of the 27 best bars in America, representing Philly as the only bar on the list in the City of Brotherly Love.

Each bar on the list came with a recommended drink, and for Hop Sing, it was their famous Henry Box Brown cocktail, made with fresh grape juice and aged rum, named for Henry "Box" Brown, who shipped himself from Virginia to Philadelphia in a crate to escape the slave trade in 1849.

, the owner and proprietor of Hop Sing Laundromat, has plenty of other projects in the works, including a banh mi shop (no concrete details on that just yet) and a resdesign of Center City bar Vesper – during Hop Sing Laundromat's recent anniversary party, he announced the news about Vesper, noting that he wants to "make Rittenhouse great again," and we have no doubt that all of Lê's upcoming ventures will be just as valuable to Philly as Hop Sing. Lê has been lending his cocktail consulting services to bars throughout the city, recently revamping bar menus at spots like Han Dynasty and Rouge.
