Last call in Philly doesn’t mean the party has to stop.
The Republican, a dive bar in South Philly, doesn’t have a sign and doesn’t post their hours outside. They are open from Wednesday through Sunday from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m., past regular drinking hours.
Rich D’Auria has been curating nights at The Republican Bar since he turned the club into a go-go joint, like his other club, Centerfolds Go-Go Lounge on Passyunk Avenue near 16th Street.
He relies on word-of-mouth to draw people to his two bars, so unless you knew someone, you probably never experienced these places.
You should go experience them.
