With a stellar line-up of local and national talent six-nights-a-week, Chris’ is a great way to spend an evening in Philly without making the trek into NYC. The cover charge can be a little steep (up to $20 for the bigger weekend shows), but if you consider yourself a night owl, the second set is often half-price. (There are also great student discounts!) The food can be a little pricey for what you get, so we recommend dining out before hand and stopping by Chris’ for drinks and some late night jazz.
