Wm. Mulherin's Sons - Philadelphia Hotel

When my Uber first pulled up in entrance of the lodge, I knew I used to be in the proper place. A red-bricked constructing with a big signal proudly proclaiming this as Wm. Mulherin’s Sons. I walked inside to discover a restaurant and marble-top bar comparatively quiet earlier than the lunch crowd would quickly stroll in.

The lodge’s reception was simply the counter for restaurant check-ins and reservations. Arriving too early, my bag was left on the coat test and I made my means one block over to Philadelphia’s most hipster coffeeshop, the flagship café for La Colombe Roasters.

By the time I used to be in a position to test in, I’d already found quite a lot of outlets and funky locations to hang around in Fishtown. The surrounding streets round Wm. Mulherin’s Sons are a few of Philly’s greatest. Street artwork is in style right here, and there’s even a big mural on the again of the restaurant and lodge.

The Wm. Mulherin’s Sons lodge is small. But the rooms are B I G. And the historical past of the constructing and its identify are equally infamous. The property was as soon as a part of a whisky and rye distillery enterprise which operated up till prohibition. The one-time whiskey was in style in Pennsylvania and close by states, successful awards and success for William Mulherin’s household enterprise.

Four rooms make up the present property (although it appears enlargement plans are within the works). Each is totally outfitted with all of the tech you’d want for a cushty keep, together with a flat-screen TV and wi-fi audio system.

True to the constructing’s historical past, Wm. Mulherin’s Sons additionally runs a preferred restaurant on website. This truly got here earlier than the lodge and it’s been a longtime favourite because it opened. Wood-fired pizzas and different Italian specialities make up the core of the menu. And in fact there are various wonderful whiskey and rye cocktails obtainable.

In the bedrooms, the uncovered brick partitions are matched with customized wallpaper. Sleek furnishings in leather-based and different supplies make this a designer’s dream. There’s loads of open house to make the room really feel like your individual.

Quirky design objects and dwell crops (and succulents) are scattered across the room. And a small kitchen with concrete counter tops is sufficient to make it really feel like a correct house. I couldn’t cease imagining what my dream hipster condominium would possibly seem like—as a result of it regarded like this.
