Lê from Hop Sing Laundromat has updated his shot-based happy hour. The happy hour allows properly attired guests to shoot or sip (probably sip) Espolon Añejo tequila for $3.50, Booker’s Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey for $7.77 or Bowmore’s 25 years old Single Malt Whisky $39.99 plus many other top notch spirits. It might be pricy for that 25-year old Bowmore, but when you consider a bottle costs $445 it starts to look like a deal. A deal you sip, delicately.
Happy hour at Hop Sing Laundromat is Tuesday through Friday, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

For seven years now we’ve polled bartenders, beer reps, booze writers and professional drinkers of all stripes, and asked them to pick their most-loved bars in the area. We then add our own favorites, do a little cocktail-napkin math and come up with the 50 Best Bars in Philadelphia. This year the Best Bars list includes dives, gastropubs, cocktail lounges and even an awesome little spot in Port Richmond.
This year’s list features a new number one bar, but that’s far from the only interesting tidbit on the list.
