Aqua Lounge Philadelphia
On the sleepy third block of Girard beneath a small, metallic sign whispering AQUA sits a small lounge with a huge presence. Owner Carlos Sanchez refurbished a local dive and created a venue with a "chill vibe" for his DJ friends to spin techno and house. The lounge's hardwood floors, low lighting and copious candles make a very intimate atmosphere, while the friendly bar staff makes visitors feel comfortable. But it's the music that makes it.
