DINING

As a neighborhood staple for over ten years, the Upstairs Live cafe welcomes you for happy hour or dinner, offering a seasonally rotating menu crafted by Executive Chef Joe Deamer. Whether you crave a tasty snack or a three course dinner, the Upstairs Live cafe offers everything from hand cut fries to hearty quinoa salads to barbecue duck confit. The best in regional craft beers and spirits provide the perfect accompaniment to your meal. Make sure you save a little room for our homemade desserts, too.

Upstairs Live Hours:

If you are attending a show, the Upstairs Live cafe will continue to offer your favorite food and drinks while you enjoy your favorite artist. Reservations are recommended and can be made either in person, by phone at 215-222-1400 or online. Seating is limited and all tickets for Upstairs Live shows are general admission.

Although we have many free shows, most evenings Upstairs Live is presenting a ticketed performance. Guests attending a performance or who wish to dine during that time will need to purchase a ticket to do so. Please visit our ticketing page to buy your tickets in addition to making your reservations for a table.

Upstairs Live is occasionally closed for private events. If you are interested in hosting your own private party in Upstairs Live, please check out our Private Events page for more information on booking your next event with us.
