Happy Hour With Military Precision

When the clock strikes 1700, it’s happy hour time at Tavern 17. And the 1 and 7 allusions don’t stop with the time, there are Tavern sliders for just $1.70 each and $1.70 mini-cocktails as well.

The Tavern sliders are available in hamburger, smoked pork, lamb & feta, beef short rib and lump crab cake, sliders can be ordered individually or in a pack of five.

As part of Tavern 17′s bites and flights menu you can order a flight of drinks, 3 miniature cocktails that make sampling a variety of drinks an easy and inexpensive thing to do. Try out the night with a tropical flight including pineapple-ginger smash, founder’s punch and bahia pina colada, or a flight of mojitos featuring a bojito, o-jito and the traditional mojito.

As for wine, Tavern 17 features 17 whites and 17 reds by the glass, and the restaurant features a glass-encased wine room holding 1,200 bottles. What? Not 1,700 bottles?

    i had dinner there last night. great atmosphere, attentive service, good food, very reasonable pricing, but arguably the worst wine list i have ever seen. it’s all crappy large producers like mondavi and red bicylete, housed in a beautiful glass wine room. it really sticks out as deficient as compared to the creative and well thought out food and cocktail menus. the bottled beer lists also stinks. drafts beers are barely adequate. anyone else been there?

    I ate there last night and found some very interesting things from Tavern 17. Coming from out of town it was nice to see that the draft beers were all local or interantional beers. The guy I met with is kind of a wine snob so he was in heaven with the wine flights. It allowed him to show off a little as he picked wines from all around the world and compare them to the wines he knew from California. We had flat bread for appetizer that was outstanding and then I had the 1/2 organic chicken that was moist and fell off the bone. Prices were very reasonable as with a bottle of wine, appetizer and two entrees it was $80 with tip. Flight of beer and wine the other guy paid for but it was duing happy hour so if I remember right they were all $1.70 each for my beer and his wine. I do remember all this guy could talk about was how great the Jersey Tomoatoes are since he came from NJ. He was very impressed with the evening being a local guy. When back in Philly I would go back as well. Bon appetit

    um sorry to be argumentative, but to my knowledge, tavern 17 doesn’t really offer wine flights (just glasses and bottles) they do have flights of cocktails (pretty cool), and no the beer and wine are not $1.70 at happy hour (only cocktail flight drinks and sliders)

    The place is pretty but the food was just ok, compared to the other philadelphia restuarants this is no big deal!!!
    Just another Radisson restuarant
