2023 First-Date Spot

Next of Kin

Need a reliable bar where you can stare at a Bumble date while making erotic-yet-skeptical eyes? Want to drink a well-made cocktail with ingredients you can actually identify? This new Fishtown spot is designed to serve the neighborhood straightforward classics, and that’s what makes it wonderful. If the date’s a dud, just sit at the bar and hang out with co-owners Kyle Darrow, John Grubb and Devan Roberts instead.
