Whittled into an unassuming warehouse in Kensington, Martha is the lovingly appointed domain of Jon Medlinsky, a serious fermentation scholar with a puckish sense of humor. His fixation on all things local translates to beer, wine and cider lineups heavy on Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Bar manager Mike Landers stretches these borders slightly further with his spirituous meanderings. Taste through one of Philly’s most interesting back bars (amari, mezcal, sotol), complemented by housemade liqueurs and a straightforward cocktail list.

What to drink
The Harry Tonic Jr.—order it for the name, savor it for the Bluebird Gin and custom tonic from Bittercube.
Martha's love of funk extends to the food (house pickles, hoagies topped with ingredients like fermented radish).
