Our popular Washington Square West location features a European-style market in the iconic Ben Franklin building, known to Philly locals as “The Ben.” This location houses our first bottle shop, a diverse prepared foods selection, cheese cave, charcuterie, coffee bar, and gourmet grocery.
Once you’re done shopping, where to go next? Grab your cheesy goodies and have a picnic in sunny Washington Square Park. Visit Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the Constitution Center, catch a show at the Walnut Street Theater, and explore the nearby neighborhoods of Old City and Chinatown.

In addition to all its offerings, The Bottle Shop plays host to classes and special events on a regular basis. Visit the Bottle Shop site for more info.
