Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary or toasting to a new year, Philly is home to some of the best places to have a glass of Champagne and celebrate life’s good fortune.
With four locations in the city (three cafes and one taproom), Tria makes it easy to find a seat and enjoy an array of Champagne offerings alongside snacks like mussels and toast with eggs and truffles. Find your drink of choice and ask to pair it with one of the restaurant’s top-notch cheeses. Multiple locations, 215.972.8742
Panorama takes hotel dining to a whole new level. With 120 wines on tap and over 150 wines by the glass, even non-Champagne drinkers will find something to toast with. Find sparkling wines from Italy, France and California in a range of price points to please your palate as much as your wallet. Penn’s View Hotel, 14 N. Front St., 215.922.7800
With a prime location and scene-y vibe, Parc is already a great place for celebrations. Add a full list of by-the-bottle Champagnes hailing from different regions of France and entrees like steak frites, salmon Provençal and veal escalope, and you’ll (almost) forget you’re in Philly. 227 S. 8th St., 215.545.2262
Time may be known more for its whiske, but it does offer a small Champagne collection (about five labels and three sparkling wines by the glass). But the petite collection won’t matter much once you’re clinking glasses in the dimly lit space with live music playing in the background. When you’re done dining, head upstairs to dance the night away. Celebration enhanced. 1315 Sansom St., 215.985.4800
Jet Wine Bar
A changing wine list keeps Jet Wine Bar fresh and a seat at the sleek bar makes any night feel special. But if celebrating at home is more your style (sometimes, you just can’t beat a home-cooked meal), the wine bar offers to-go Champagne options, all affordably priced. 1525 South St., 215.735.1116
Root's “Private Stash” includes selections from A. Margaine and H. Goutorbe, both “Premier Cru.” Pair your bottle with warm olives, chicken liver toast or a cheese plate. But no matter what you order, be sure to end the night with the olive oil cake. 1206 Frankford Ave., 215.515.3452
