Groove through the dog days of summer with a little help from The Trestle Inn, the updated go-go bar under the Reading Railroad tracks with undeniable hipster appeal.
The spot may look like a typical dive from its exterior, but those who hang out in the groovy environs, get down with go-go dancers and pick from the long list of whiskey, 65 in all, soon realize this bar is far from commonplace.
Every Friday this summer, the bar hosts Go Go on the Block, a weekly whiskey-fueled block party on Callowhill Street from 5 to 9 p.m.
The Trestle’s glam go-go dancers — known as the Trestle Specials — take it outside for some alfresco shimmy and shake, and everyone can enjoy beer and cocktails by the pitcher.
Pick a refresher from the menu including $10 happy hour pitchers of KelSo Pilsner (the price goes up to $12 7-9 p.m.) and boozy concoctions like the Thai Dye (Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon and Thai basil) or Ruby Friday (Art in the Age Rhubarb and Strawberry Lemonade).
Plus every Thursday, the Trestle continues its Spirit of Thursday happy hour with complimentary tastings from 6 to 8 p.m., and every Saturday night, Saturday Night Fever-inspired moves are key on the dance floor with a Donna Summer-themed classic disco dance party, Summer of Summer.
