Irwin’s is an indoor-outdoor bar in the Bok Building in South Philly. If you’re not familiar, it used to be a vocational school and now is a combination of art galleries, recording studios, and bars - so basically the same thing. With Irwin’s, the building now has a fully operational restaurant that won’t close as soon as it drops below 50 degrees (unlike the summer-only Bok Bar). Besides the full bar that has a long cocktail, beer, and wine list, they also have a full menu of mostly Mediterranean small and shared plates.
