Anne Frey – 1 Tippling Place, Philadelphia

Anne Frey – 1 Tippling Place, Philadelphia

This post can still be read here, but listen to the podcast at my all Drinks/Travel blog: A Lush Life Manual!

How many times does this happen to you? You are walking down the street dressed in a sari, a man stops you, asks who you are, tells you your bar is his favorite in America and wants to open one in India? Well, it happened to Anne Frey owner of 1 Tippling Place and she is here to tell us more.

1 Tippling Place is exactly the way Anne Frey wants it to be. She planned it that way. She longed for a local of her own and now there are going to be two: one in Philadelphia and one in Mumbai.

After a trip to the UK, she fell in love with its cocktail culture and thought it would do well in Philadelphia. With help from Robin Honhold, now of White Lyan, and Dave Tang, a protégé of Sasha Petraske of Milk and Honey, she created a bar worthy of its neighborhood, the über-chic Rittenhouse Square.

Everything is freshly made – syrups, juices, bitters – and ice is hand-cut!  This constant attention to detail has been recognized by Food & Wine (24 Best Cocktail Bars in US), Roca Patron (People’s Choice 100 Best Bars in America), Maxim, Chilled and Dujour magazines. (All you Vodka drinkers, don’t worry she has kept it on the menu, unlike a few snobbier places out there.)

Now Anne is off to Mumbai again, after an extremely successful pop-up bar, to recreate a 1 Tippling Place in one of the busiest cities in the world. We can’t wait to hear all about it when she returns.
