Warmdaddy's celebrates the FOOD, CULTURE, and MUSIC that encompass the REAL SOUTHERN RHYTHM + BLUES EXPERIENCE.  Located along the Delaware River on Christopher Columbus Blvd., Warmdaddy's has become one of Philadelphia's premier dining + nightlife landmarks.  Experience the SPIRIT of TRUE SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY in a warm + relaxed ATMOSPHERE that speaks through CONTEMPORARY SOUTHERN DECOR.  We invite you to come down and grab a seat in our spacious dining room or pull up to the bar for one of our mason jar specials.


Warmdaddy's creates a place to enjoy down-home culture and the music of talented blues, R+B and soul artists such as The Amazin' Grace Little, Mozaic Flow, Carol Riddick, Blue Method, JAE, Leon Jordan Jr. & the Soul Collective, Joe Louis Walker, Rheel Menn, Point Blank, and Vertical Current.

Our 100 seat dining room sits in full view of the 18' X 18' mainstage where living legends and rising stars jam nightly.  As bearer of the eternal flame of southern soul, we also host a weekly open jam session every tuesday, allowing local artists a place to shine.    

Whether you seek a fun night out, a late night lite-bite, a family dinner, or a special occasion private party, any spot in the house feels like a trip down-home to Auntie's place.

With a history as rich as the music itself, we invite you to come down and feel the Warmdaddy's experience.  


Bring friends and family for a real old-fashioned family style dining experience featuring a menu of southern staples with all of the trimmings, prepared fresh, including real southern style collard greens, freshly baked cornbread, and rich+creamy baked macaroni+cheese.
