Happy Hour Philly Announces Summer Social Launch

In April, Center City District announced that its annual summer happy hour series, SIPS, was canceled due to the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic. With restrictions now fully lifted and coronavirus numbers low, it may have seemed premature. Chris Parker-Rajewski and Mark Prinzinger, of social startup Happy Hour Philly, conceived Summer Social, a weekly happy hour event, as a way to support Philadelphia bars and restaurants who are still trying to recover and get back to normal.

Today, Parker-Rajewski and Prinzinger announced the launch of the inaugural season, sponsored by the Sazerac Company, which will take place at bars and restaurants across Philadelphia neighborhoods from June 30th to September 1st, featuring discounted drink specials from 4-6 pm at all participating locations.

“As restaurants recover from this past year, Summer Social will draw patrons on one of the slowest days of the week for restaurants,” Parker-Rajewski told Philly Grub.

All participating restaurants will be offering a $4 beer, $4 wine and $5 cocktail options.  

The full list of participating locations is available at, which features the user friendly ability to find places based on neighborhood or category of restaurant.
