The Time Out Love Philadelphia Awards kick off today

By Time Out Philadelphia editors

Time Out Philadelphia launched nearly a year ago, and in that time we’ve published dozens of posts about the things we love—from Italian restaurants and Philadelphia bakeries to parks and coffee shops. Now we want to hear about the restaurants, bars, pubs, cafés, shops and cultural venues in Philadelphia that YOU love.

So, along with all the other Time Outs in cities around the globe, we’re taking part in the first-annual Time Out Love Philadelphia Awards, which gives readers the chance to sound off about the spots in town that they adore. We all have that place—the one around the corner that we know and love; the one we think we discovered; the one we are loathed to tell everyone about (in case it gets too busy) but we really want to succeed. Well, it's time to give those local gems a big-up as the Time Out Love Philadelphia Awards kick off today. Here are the categories that you can weigh in on:

Culture spot



Music venue

Movie theater

LGBTQ hangout

Place to drink in the sun


Coffee place



Brunch spot

Go here to pick your category, locate your venue and cast a vote. Voting is open from March 6 to April 10. Winners will be announced on the website on May 2, and receive a certificate and window sticker that they can display in their business. For more information about the Time Out Love Philadelphia Awards, visit our detailed FAQ page. Happy voting!
