Philadelphia, PA - In Philadelphia’s East Kensington, Post Haste is a cocktail bar with a farm-to-glass beverage philosophy and robust food program. Helmed by Gabe Guerrero (partner/director of operations - formerly The Dandelion and El Vez) and Fred Beebe (partner/beverage director - formerly Momofuku and Sunday in Brooklyn), Post Haste’s beverage menu exclusively features spirits, beers, wines, citrus, herbs, produce and mixers from the Mid-Atlantic.

Nothing will be imported to support local purveyors and address the bar’s environmental impact by reducing food miles. Post Haste’s food menu similarly emphasizes local sourcing in seasonal, modern American small plates, exclusively sourcing produce and proteins from local producers, including Bhumi Growers, Vannini Farms, and Landisville Produce Co-Operative.
From the name to the design and the menu, Post Haste has an intentional and forward-thinking story to tell. While “posthaste” is defined as “with great speed,” Post Haste reinterprets the phrase to mean the opposite: “after the haste,” underscoring their intention of creating a destination to relax and unwind after the haste of the day. Celebrating the bounty surrounding Philadelphia, Post Haste’s name prioritizes thoughtfulness over immediacy. Guerrero and Beebe share a penchant for locality and sustainability, having met while founding and running a college cafe that sourced over 90% of its products locally.
Designed by Aeternum Design Studio, the 1,800-square-foot space offers a modern and welcoming backdrop for a fresh approach to the cocktail bar experience. The cocktail menu offers four categories, including “Covers” featuring variations of classics made with local ingredients, “Remixes'' showcasing signature spins built on a familiar base; and “Experimental Pop” for adventurous drinkers interested in brand-new cocktail creations, as well as robust non-alcoholic options in their "Free Spirit" section. These categories are a nod to Gabe's career as a longtime Philly-based DJ and pop artist and Fred's history as a drummer in various garage and punk bands.
