The Dolphin’s glowing neon-lit wall is highly Instagrammable, if that’s your thing, but chances are you’re here for the music (and the modest $5 cover). With one of Philly’s most eclectic mix of DJs and dance nights, you will find something you like at this South Philly institution—from “Danceteria,” a Friday night mix of music from Philly mixers Jayo and Ed Christof that blends Hall & Oates into house to “Club Congress,” a disco-heavy night with a diverse crowd and LGBTQ following. There’s also DJ Sweat Daddy’s “Lean Back” 2000s rap party—compelling you to remember all the words to every DMX hit you ever saw on your MTV box—and much, much more. The Dolphin is open Wednesdays through Saturdays only, and has a great 10pm happy hour with $1 well drinks and Tecates.
