1 Monk's Cafe

Monk's finds itself on many a top 5 list, but usually for it's amazing Belgian beer selection and addictive mussels and frites (the dipping sauce alone with worth the visit). But this tiny yet popular spot gets bonus points for its night owl chefs, who serve the entire menu until 1 a.m. daily.

2 Standard Tap

For many, the urge for a midnight snack comes after that third or fourth beverage. When you are doing your imbibing at Northern Liberties' hoppin' Standard Tap, you only need to flag down the bartender for a hearty meal. The bar's kitchen is open until 1 a.m. and offers award-winning options like duck confit salad and pulled pork sandwiches, all made with local ingredients.

3 Fuji Mountain

 When you imagine a late night menu, greasy (yet delicious) burgers and pizza come to mind. But what happens when midnight strikes and all you can think about is toro nigeri with yuzu dressing? Head to Fuji Mountain, where the sushi chefs are slicing and rolling until 1:30 a.m. The kitchen also keeps up with hot dishes and a fourth floor karaoke bar allows you to keep the party going.

4 Fado Irish Pub & Restaurant

 

Fado is Philadelphia's "football" bar, which to those loyal followers means European soccer. The bar is happy to keep the many TVs tuned to all the matches, but often the distance means odd-timed games and as a result, famished fans. Fado keeps the footballers in check with a late night menu until 1:30 a.m. every night, serving up celebratory eats. Check out the chips with curry sauce, a U.K. classic that goes perfectly with that last pint.

5 Chickie's & Pete's

 

Arguably the best sports bar in town (and across the nation), this mini chain's roots are in seafood. So when the game is done, head over for a basket of Old Bay-spiked crabs and a side of Crab Fries. The food keeps coming until 1 a.m. on weekends (midnight other nights) so you'll be fine even if the Phils went into extra innings.
