Midtown Village FLOWER DELIVERY BY ODE À LA ROSE, THE FLORIST WITH A FRENCH TOUCH

Ode à la Rose Flower Delivery in Midtown Village

Midtown Village is a neighborhood that knows its place in history, having been a vital part of Philadelphia since the early 19th century. A small area if just a few blocks, this neighborhood was the most animated and most frequented part of the business district and the haunt of many celebrities, leading politicians, and other local notables. It was here, at 12th and Chestnut, that Ben Franklin conducted his famous kite-flying experiment. The first free public library was located here, as was the US Mint for a time.

A Rich History

Retailing was revolutionized here by John Wanamaker, the “King of Merchants,” when he opened his giant department store at 13th and Chestnut. This store was the very first to use electric lights – thus enabling locals to shop after dark. Just to the north, John B. Stetson began the most famous hat company in the US, blending function and fashion in hats that were sold throughout the world. After many years of decline, Midtown Village has spent the last 15 years or so coming back to life with renewed vitality. This neighborhood prides itself on being a unique enclave of independently-owned and open-minded restaurants, retail stores, hotels, and more.

Things to Do in Midtown Village

As one of the leisure hotspots in the Center City district, Midtown Village is home to many restaurants and bars, theatres and shops along Broad Street and Rittenhouse. Residents enjoy the wood-fired pizzas at Barbuzzo, American/Indian fusion at Indeblue, margaritas and street-food-inspired tacos at Lolita, the modern European menu at Garces Trading Co., fine vegan dining at Vedge, and many more. If it’s adult beverages you crave, you can find them in a range of bars from comfortable and familiar to modern and sophisticated. Try Fergie’s Pub or McGillin’s Olde Ale House for a taste of old-school charm or pop into Tredici Enoteca, Double Knot, or Charlie Was a Sinner for something new.
