    This gayborhood haven for all boasts a welcoming vibe conducive to LGBT singles looking to meet someone; equal parts pub and club, the downstairs offers food and a large beer selection.

    If you're ready to dance, the two rooms upstairs are great on the weekends. Although it's better with a group as the crowd is hit or miss. The downstairs isn't a very nice space

    If you love to dance it up to tunes you'll actually recognize, visit Woody's. This classic Philadelphia venue is not one to be missed. Tip - download their app on your phone while you're there. :)

    Mixed drinks are expensive ($10) but have more than twice the amount of alcohol than other places. So it's a good deal - just pace yourself.

    The best gay club in Philly IMO. There are other great clubs in the city for the gays, but Woodys by far (especially after the renovation) is a treat & a great spot to introduce a new gay to the city.

    Woody’s offers eclectic themes & events, from Latin to country-western nights. They dish up a mean brunch, too, completed by Bloody Marys made with cucumber vodka. You just know you'll be back.

    They should change the name of the place. The real Woody would never block off the restrooms from his paying customers. And what's with these giant drink glasses? It's a total racket.
