831 Christian Street; 215-238-0379

At street level, the Italian Marketís throwback charm is the energetic mix of gritty South Philly stalls and shops selling gourmet goods. And this nearby underground baróliterally 12 steps downóis equally eclectic. A mix of residents perches in neighborly fashion on beat-up stools in the dark, fortune-teller-machine-and-coin-op-pool-table basement that, like its aboveground environs, is surprisingly gourmet, with a list of seasonally bottled craft brews and a menu of vegan options.
