Can’t decide which club to hit for the night? The Dolphin Tavern is calling your name for a night with alternative vibes in Philadelphia.

Open since 2013; the club is on the ground level of a brick building. Before becoming the dive bar and nightclub we know today, The Dolphin Tavern was a renowned go-go club and a central hub of South Philadelphia’s nightlife.

Spanning an intimate dance floor, The Dolphin Tavern features a dimly lit, oak-filled interior with a disco ball flashing lights in all directions. The club boasts an alternative ambiance with its gritty atmosphere, glowing walls, and quirky fairy lights.

The Dolphin Tavern is the place to groove and headbang to various genres, including techno, ‘90s house, punk, new-wave, goth, industrial, dark disco, ‘70s pop, and ‘00s hip-hop. The nightlife spot also hosts LGBT+ nights, dancers, and international acts like Washed Out, guaranteeing endless entertainment.

The club is a magnet for the LGBT+ community and laid-back party-goers looking for a place to let loose.

With its choice of music and underground vibes, The Dolphin Tavern is everything you need for memorable nights in Philadelphia.
