Hyatt Bartender in PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania

Description:

As Philadelphia’s only hotel on the National Register of Historic Places, The Bellevue Hotel has been at the forefront of shaping the city’s cultural, culinary and cocktail scene since becoming its first luxury hotel in 1904. Timeless architecture, local art, the East Coast’s largest fitness facility and modern design of spacious guest rooms with soaring ceilings are just a few things that make The Bellevue Hotel unlike any other in Philadelphia.

Stylish and inviting, the hip XIX (Nineteen) hotel bar is a popular destination for Center City gatherings. Offering rich chocolate-colored leather booths hidden in alcoves to share tempting appetizers, guests can share news of the day over one of XIX’s 19 signature cocktails. Works of local artists adorn the walls as a glass of wine is sipped or a crafted brew enjoyed from the cushioned, high backed chairs and leather furnishings scattered throughout. Whether enjoying an aperitif before dinner in our restaurant or savoring one last drink in front of the soothing fireplace, patrons find themselves wishing to remain in the relaxing warmth of this contemporary Center City Philadelphia bar.
