New Food & Booze Pairings at LVL

chicken_sandFor December, we’ve added some new food options and seasonal drafts that taste great – but are even BETTER together! See a few of our favorite pairings in the list we’ve compiled and remember to stop in to LVL for happy hour or our Philly late night happy hour to get in on some great deals!

Spring Rolls & Bell’s Two Hearted Ale
The sweet ginger dipping sauce that comes with our new braised pork and mushroom spring rolls compliments the hoppy flavor of Bell’s famous IPA. A winning combination!

Pork Milanesa & Southern Tier Live
The rich, complex tastes of our pork sandwich go well with the subtle flavor of the Live Pale Ale from Southern Tier Brewing. Try them together for a great pairing.

We have even more on tap (and in the kitchen) here at the Las Vegas Lounge, so stop into Center City’s best bar for food, booze and billiards TODAY!
