We know all the popular kids in the hoods among startups, creative agencies, law firms, and other types of companies, so whether you’re looking for a historic setting, a trendy vibe, or a peaceful escape, you’ll find your ‘’can’t sit with us gang’’.

Let’s dive in!

1. University City

If you’re looking for a vibrant and youthful office environment, University City is your lunch table gang. It’s home to the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and several other colleges and research institutions. You’ll be surrounded by smart and ambitious young people like yourself, which can be inspiring, just be careful not to become one of the mean girls.

2. Center City

Center City is the heart of Philadelphia’s business district, with skyscrapers, shops, restaurants, and theaters. It’s the most convenient location for public transportation, with several subway lines, buses, and trains passing through. It’s also very easy to explore thanks to its grid street layout. Numbered streets run north-south and lettered streets run east-west, it’s as simple as it gets. It’s like playing a giant game of Battleship, except instead of ships, you’re trying to find your way to the nearest cheesesteak joint. And while we’re on the subject, this is where you’ll find some of the best cheesesteaks in town.

3. Fishtown

Nope, it’s got nothing to do with fish…It just comes from the Germans who called it ‘’Fischers’’. Fishtown is easy to get to from anywhere in the Philadelphia region. It’s also close to some major highways, so it is a convenient location for employees and clients who are driving in from out of town. Plus the Center City is very close, so the best thing about this one is that it’s very conveniently located. The entrepreneurial scene here is just on fire recently; Many new businesses and startups are setting up shops in the area which created a dynamic and innovative business community, with plenty of opportunities for collaboration and networking. Even better, it’s more affordable so it’s a great choice if you’re looking to save money but still have the advantages of the location. Fishtown has plenty of office space. It’s full of large, spacious buildings that are perfect for businesses that need plenty of room to grow. You might need a small coworking space or a large office building; no matter the case, you’ll find it here!

4. Little Italy

Mamma Mia! All of that Italian food’s got us hungry and in the need of some Little Italy. This place has so many cafes and restaurants nearby that you can mix it up every lunch break. But enough about food, more than the amazing coffee breaks you’ll have, Little Italy is also a great location for business offices because of its rich cultural heritage, convenient location, a strong sense of community, and plenty of office space. If you’re looking for a neighborhood that will inspire your business and help it grow, Little Italy is definitely worth considering. You thought it was over? Not quite; One of the best things about Little Italy is its tight-knit community. Whether you’re grabbing a cup of coffee at a local cafe or attending a neighborhood event, you’ll feel a sense of belonging in this friendly and welcoming community anywhere you go.

You’ll also be inspired by all the creativity here since Old City is also a hub of artistic and cultural activity. There are dozens of galleries, museums, and theaters in the area, and the neighborhood is home to many artists and creatives. If you want to impress your clients, Old City won’t disappoint. This neighborhood is packed with restaurants and bars, from trendy gastropubs to fancy seafood spots.

6. Northern Liberties

Northern Liberties is another trendy neighborhood that’s popular with young professionals and creatives. It’s a bit more residential than Fishtown, but still has plenty of bars, restaurants, and boutiques. If you work in Northern Liberties, you’ll be able to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Delaware River or catch a show at Fillmore, one of Philly’s best music venues. Just don’t forget your earplugs.

Quick fact: Northern Liberties is home to the Piazza at Schmidt’s. Never heard of it? Well if you’re moving to NL this might become your favorite new spot. It’s a vibrant outdoor public space that hosts concerts, festivals, and other events all throughout the year.
