As the flowers begin to bloom and the sun begins to shine a bit brighter, City Winery Philadelphia is readying for spring. With open doors to the outdoor patio, free live music starting on Cinco de Mayo, and exciting upcoming shows and dining selections, City Winery is the place to be as we enter the new season.

City Winery Philadelphia has officially brought back their patio seating, so guests are now able to enjoy the spacious outdoor patio at the venue along with their favorite City Winery food and drinks as well as free live music from local artists. City Winery is kicking off the patio season on May 5 with the first patio performance: a Cinco de Mayo Celebration DJ’ed by Rahsaan Lucas of AfroTaino, a Philly based Afro-Latinx arts & culture collective. The music will be accompanied by Sangria, Margarita, and other holiday food and drink specials. Upcoming patio performances include local singer songwriters, Michael Berg, Tim Ward Jr. and Dina Hall. Reservations for patio dining  can be made through City Winery’s website or via the RESY app.

City Winery Philadelphia also has some diverse comedy offerings lined up to kick off a season of very special shows. On Monday, April 24, Tone Bell and LP from Netflix’s Drink Masters will be hosting Cocktails & Comedy, a “one night only” event that “showcases exceptionally talented comedians and mixologists of color, with an intentional focus on amplifying the talents of women and BIPOC creatives.”

Then, on Saturday, April 29, Joe Matarese will be hitting the Main Stage for a very special standup show. Joe began his comedy career in Philadelphia at the age of 19 and after being featured on The Late Show with David Letterman, America’s Got Talent, The Howard Stern Show, and more, he is returning to his roots to show Philly some love.
