“lounge & beer garden, too!”

The Silk City Diner, Lounge, & Beer Garden has a long history in Philadelphia. The diner car was built in 1952 by the Paterson Dining Company in Paterson, New Jersey. At the time, Paterson had a thriving silk manufacturing industry and was nicknamed “Silk City.” Hence, the diner car, also manufactured in Paterson, was dubbed a “Silk City Diner.” By 1954, the diner was installed next to a cocktail lounge in Philadelphia at 5th & Spring Garden and began serving Philadelphians brunch, dinner, and nightly entertainment happily since. Silk City’s original management closed down the diner in 2006, leaving it free to be purchased and creatively re-worked by new owner Mark Bee (who also owns N.3rd Bar & Restaurant). After a year-long process of construction and re-development, the new Silk City opened in 2007. While Mark kept the name “Silk City,” he completely revamped the diner and lounge in addition to building a 3,000 square foot Beer Garden that opens every spring. The menu offers New American cuisine for dinner seven nights a week and brunch on the weekends, while the beer list mingles select imports with American standards. Featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and dives!
