Right off Rittenhouse Square, the AKA hotel’s slinky street-level bar is situated on one of the most photogenic corners in the city. But there’s personality bolstering those good looks. It’s run by a young and tight-knit crew that takes a collaborative approach to building the beverage program. Graying patricians in tie clips and funny hats share real estate with wine geeks, off-duty industry workers and people simply looking to plow through some oysters.
