Silk City

Media Title

Long before there was the Barbary or Johnny Brenda's, there was Silk City. The grime-encrusted lounge that hosted assorted bands and fledgling dance-driven DJ parties was for years the neon-lit cornerstone of Philly nightlife's northward migration. With cheap or no covers, mixed crowds and cheap plates of gravy-soaked french fries to be had in the classic silver-bullet diner next door, Silk City was a destination dive. So it could've been risky business when NoLibs' man-about-the-neighborhood Mark Bee took over two years ago, gutting Silk's insides, applying a mosaic-laced carnie-boudoir makeover in the lounge, and switching to a bougie-comfort-food menu in the diner. Despite the redo, Silk has kept its laid-back, anything-cool-goes religion. And its hard-partying congregation--it's still home to top-notch, only-in-Philly parties like the Thursday night Mo Money No Problems and Monday's Back 2 Basics.
