Philly’s known for a lot. In addition to being a city steeped in history and brimming with cultural happenings, the city boasts a wide array of talented native sons, and who better than South Philadelphia’s own Freeway to help navigate. Recently signed to the G-Unit outpost G-Unit Philly, Freeway fills us in on the best spots to grab a bite and spend the night.
Best Cheesesteak: Dalessandro’s
In a city known for its melted-cheese and meat goodness, it’s important to know the best cheese steak spot. Some argue between Geno’s and Pat’s, but Freeway says it's a no brainer: Dalessandro’s is the best. This Philly institution has been perfecting their recipe for over fifty years and somehow it keeps getting better.
600 Wendover Street
Best Fine Dining Restaurant: Pod
If the Jetsons opened a sushi place, this is probably what it’d look like. With a retro-modern feel and some of the best food the city has to offer, the 2001-inspired space was opened by famed Philly restaurateur Stephen Starr, so you know he knows what he’s doing. Order like a baller and get the Lobster Tempura and Wasabi Crusted Filet Mignon, you can’t go wrong.
3636 Sansom Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104
Best Place Ballpark: Wachovia / Wells Fargo Center
While the space has changed names several times in its fifteen-year tenure, Philadelphians know it as the best spot to see everything from nail biter Sixers games to Katy Perry productions. The year-round arena seats 20,000+ so don’t worry about getting a seat.
Wells Fargo Center
3601 S.Broad Street
Best Club: 8th Street Lounge
8th Street Lounge is a hat trick of a night out: the massive Center City space combines club energy, lounge vibes, and bar amenities to provide the environment for a fun night out.
