If you’ve missed the press on Hop Sing Laundromat, it’s because either a) your head has been buried in a hole for the last year or b) you’re so NYC-centric that it never crossed your mind that a bar with a liquor selection which blows away any bar in this city could open anywhere other than here.
Enter Philadelphia’s Hop Sing Laundromat, more speakeasy than many other speakeasies.
What’s Good The drinks, obviously. The menu is filled cover to cover with spectacular drinks. Many of which combine two top level liquors (think rum, whiskey, gin, etc) in a way that some folks might decry as sacrilege. Suffice to say, the results are stellar. The “top shelf well” lives up to its name. This bar has the top notch America craft distilled Smooth Ambler’s Greenbrier Gin chilling in the place normally reserved for Crystal Palace Gin. Naturally, given that I rather enjoy that gin, I thought it added some great notes to the cocktails it was in.
