Celebrate Pina Colada Day at these five Philly bars

If you were looking for an excuse to celebrate this weekend, look no further. Friday, July 10, is National Pina Colada Day

Sunny weather is expected, with little chance of getting caught in the rain, making it the perfect day for a bar crawl after work to sample some of the best coconut, pineapple and rum combinations Philadelphia has to offer. 

Enjoy the warm weather and celebrate this famous cocktail with Puerto Rican origins at one of these five Philly bars.

The Yachtsman 

1444 Frankford Avenue

Their Pina Coladas are delicious and they'll be discounted all night. From 6-8 p.m. they'll give you your first Pina Colada for free in a little plastic coconut, and their single servings will be $8 (normally $10). You can also enjoy their larger serving, poured into a cored out pineapple, for $12 (normally $18).  They've got also got a variety of Hawaiian-themed drinks, which matches the island themed decor, perfect for a mini-vacation from the city. 

V Street

126 South 19th Street

This restaurant in Rittenhouse has given the Pina Colada an interesting twist. Called the Cruz Control, it replaces rum with tequila and horchata, giving the drink an intriguing punch. V Street's diverse menu, inspired by street food from around the world, also makes it a worthwhile stop.


1141 Pine street

What's better than a Pina Colada? Pairing it with the dessert to match. Mixto has the classic cocktail you're looking for, plus a cake that compliments it perfectly. Their "slan coco" dessert is made of coconut custard and sprinkled with little pieces of coconut and cookies, making Mixto the perfect place to satisfy your sweet tooth with a drink to match.

Fat Tuesday

431 South Street

Sure, the New Orleans inspired, frat house vibe might turn some people off. But that doesn't make their slushy cocktails any less potent, or their porch any worse for gazing upon those who stroll along South Street. Pina Colada is just one of the flavors they offer, with their High Octane mix being the one that will hit you the hardest. If you're looking to party this weekend, Fat Tuesday is the place to go.
