Where to Celebrate New Year’s Eve near Manayunk

New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest party nights of the year—and there are plenty of ways to get in on all the fun here in Philly. From open bar parties to swanky dance clubs, the options on Main Street in Manayunk near your The Isle apartment are endless—which can mean making plans can be a bit stressful. If you’re looking to take the pressure out of the holiday this year, consider tapping into one of Philly’s biggest selling points—its culinary scene—to sell your friends, family or date on a different type of Near Year’s celebration.

Philadelphia is home to hundreds of award-winning restaurants, so why not wind down 2019 indulging on some mouthwatering creations? If you want to skip over the festivities on Main Street, head up to Ridge Avenue in next-door Roxborough for a visit to PTG Restaurant and Caterers, about 1.5 miles from your The Isle apartment. The restaurant grew out of a longtime local catering business—the family-owned operation, specializing in authentic Italian cooking, did so well with specialized event menus that it expanded into a full-service restaurant.

The white linen-covered, candlelit tables set the mood for a romantic night out, perfect if you’re celebrating the holiday with your sweetheart. Situated in a historic building right on Ridge Avenue, you can take in all the action on the avenue through the picture window, all while enjoying the warmth and coziness of the restaurant.

The menu is wide-ranging, from handcrafted soups to pastas dressed up with veggies and fresh fish to veal and steak. It’s the last night of the year so you might as well indulge! Grab a few dishes to split with your dining partner to get a real tour of Italy before you send off 2019. Best yet, PTG is BYOB so you can save a few bucks all while enjoying your favorite bubby or booze—a perfect ending to the year!

Happy New Year’s!
