Philadelphia, PAPhilly's Newest Entertainment Venue -  VINYL announces with great pride the grand opening of Philadelphia’s newest entertainment and live music venue. Welcome to a unique hospitality experience that combines live music, expertly-crafted cocktails, cuisine, and a vibrant environment under one roof. VINYL can be found at 215 South15th Street (between Locust and Walnut Streets)

VINYL: Philly's Newest Entertainment Venue

The 5,000-sf space was created by renowned restaurateur Rob Wasserman (Rouge, Twenty Manning, Charley Dove ) and entertainment veteran Josh Zwirzina (The Ave), who has produced concerts in the city's most prominent entertainment venues, The Filmore, Franklin Music Hall, Union Transfer, and others. Talia Tomarchio will oversee the daily operations. She has extensive experience working in nightlife destinations like Miami and Las Vegas.

Rob Wasserman is VINYL's co-owner. "VINYL represents the culmination and convergence of Josh and mine collective passions for food, drink, and hospitality." We can't wait for Philadelphia and beyond to experience our world-class venue with an exciting line-up.

VINYL will become a music lover's paradise with four nights of live entertainment. VINYL has a unique line-up of musical performers, including dueling pianos and local and headliner DJs.

Maggie Huth, the creative director of the venue, was inspired by Wasserman's vision and Otto Architects. VINYL combines classic Philadelphia architecture and modern embellishments in a historic building.

VINYL’s exterior windows are adorned with four large-scale LED Murals by local artist David Guinn. Guinn's murals recreate the look of living room curtains with a modern language of stripes and LED neon lighting. The streetscape is enlivened by the lighting, which runs in a loop of changing colors and moods. The designs pay homage to Guinn’s father, Michael Guinn, a Center City artist who has been painting for a long time. His paintings are embellished with curving stripes.

VINYL also offers a drink menu created by beverage director Ross Binder. It includes a variety of craft cocktails, bottle service for VIP lounge seating, and a wide selection of local beers and wines. Executive Chef James McQueen, Culinary Director Matthew Moon, and the VINYL team have designed a menu that includes a variety of light bites such as tuna tartare, flatbreads, and a selection of caviar.

"VINYL will introduce a brand new way for Philadelphians to enjoy live music," says Zwirzina, co-owner. Vinyl, located in Center City, is a destination for live music for Philadelphians and visitors with musical tastes of all levels.

VINYL is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 5 pm-midnight, Fridays & Sats from 5 pm-2 am. Plans are to add Sunday brunch to the menu in early fall. A happy hour is available Wednesday through Saturday from 5-7 pm. In August 2023, a special menu will be introduced. VINYL has a capacity of 350 guests. There are 50 lounge seats and 15 bar seats. There are also 40 cocktail seats and a standing room.
