Chinatown is the neighborhood stretches north to Vine Street and south to Arch Street, and from 8th Street on the east and and 11th Street on the west. It is a quick walk from City Hall, the Pennsylvania Convention Center, and most Center City neighborhoods.
At any time of the day, Chinatown is bursting full of life. The area is full of authentic restaurants and shops influenced by Taiwanese, Cantonese, Malaysian, Burmese, Vietnamese, Korean, Thai, Fujianese, and Hong Kong cultures. Pass through the “Friendship Arch” at 10th & Arch, and you’ll find yourself in a new world filled with colorful storefronts and tantalizing smells from local eateries.
During the 19th century, Cantonese immigrants moved into the area and opened businesses close to many of the commercial areas of Philadelphia. During the 1960’s, The Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation helped initiate an urban renewal of Chinatown and gave the residents and business owners the ability to influence the development of the neighborhood.
Chinatown has seen a significant rise of new construction, converted condominiums, and rental buildings, which makes it much more than a shopping and dining destination. The neighborhood also features entertainment venues like The Trocadero Theater, which hosts music and theater events throughout the year. A night out in Chinatown could also include a karaoke stop at Yakitori Boy, a cocktail or two at speakeasy-esque Hop Sing Laundromat, or a bowl full of heavenly hand-drawn noodles from Terakawa Ramen. You won’t grow bored or hungry here in Chinatown!
