World Café Live: Turning Up the Beat on Great Food, Music, and Much More

Concert Crowd

World Café Live knows what this city wants and just how to deliver the goods—this live entertainment venue, casual American eatery, and late night hotspot is satisfying Philadelphia’s appetite for an all-in-one experience worthy of our attention. World Café Live’s calendar of events is always full with the long list of ticketed and free concerts it hosts on its Upstairs and Downstairs levels, ensuring guests can indulge on noteworthy acts any day of the week. And World Café Live’s daily menu of classic, casual American fare never minds stealing the show either, proving to be the ideal opening act or encore to any band heating up the stage.

Go upstairs to enjoy The Café’s Weekday $8 Lunch Specials that change daily to put a little groove back into the grind. Lunch is served Monday-Friday beginning at 11:30am, and features all the same favorites as on the nightly Dinner Menu. Keeping it on the healthy side, the World Café Live Menu offers a thoughtful balance of light appetizers and salads, along with entrée sandwiches, seafood, and pastas. Start things off with a palate-pleasing appetizer like the Fennel Crusted Ahi Tuna or Quinoa Salad before diving into any indulgent plate of the Pumpkin Ravioli, the Lobster Bread Pudding, or the Pulled Pork Sandwich.

Weekday Happy Hour is the Café’s solution to rush hour traffic—once visitors settle in, they quickly figure out there’s really no reason to leave. After all, happy hour is followed by weeknight drink specials, hot music, and delicious bites. And once happy hour turns into dinner turns into a night cap, remember the Café’s skilled team of bartenders is on-hand to hook you up with any of their specialty cocktails, premium spirits, beers, and wines. And to think you considered suffering the gridlock!

Downstairs dining is available during ticketed events. World Café Live tasting Menus, Chef Specials, and other unique deals are scheduled often and are always worth checking out. The Café thinks of everything, even the tots. Their “Peanut Butter and Jams” sessions introduce kids to cool family-friendly bands and food—future generations of loyal World Café Live fans are born here.

Refusing to separate good times from good food, World Café Live serves up both on one big plate. Have your lunch with a side of freshly seasoned tunes, or kick off that much-anticipated concert with a hard core cuisine solo. You design the set list and World Café Live will take care of the rest.
