I don't think that it's something that would happen every night or everytime someone goes out...but sometimes... It happens. It's nice to have that option for that one special occasion you may want to literally "party all night" there's no reason why Philly should be the exception when it comes to the big cities.

There is nothing that exciting in this city where you need to be out at 3am. Now NYC or Chicago is a different story

Then why do you live in Philly?? What I'm saying is..., " Those Cities" didn't start that way, they slowly developed and grew into what they've become. It's that old Quaker State thinking and whatever else that has always manage to stifle Phillys growth and potential.. I clearly remember people being upset about building surpassing 500 feet in hight. That was only in 1984! (SMH)

It had nothing to do with safety on environment but a gentalmens agreement from over a century before.
Something about not building taller than Billy Penns Hat. That's it....nothing more , and there were people actually against it. So for many years we had a cluster of giant ari conditioner shaped high rises that couldn't surpass 500 Ft.

Same as keeping bars and clubs open past two and don't get me started on the LCB and State Stores and Beer Distributers.
As far as keeping a frigging bar open til 3, your replys don't make much sense other than " There's more to see in those other cities." Sooo... by your logic a bars should close at two am always because it's not enough to see outside the bars.... Riiiiiight.

I'm glad the city is finally trying to break out of that " Old Crusty Quaker" mold and develope into a place it should've been 40 years ago. We know it'll take a lot more than bars open past 3am and redeveloping Market East and and a few places but our goal should be to grow the city back to 2 million and become a livelier place and destination for transplants to want to move as well as home grown talent to stay, and having a better playground for adults won hurt it.

And keeping bars open until 3am just increases a chance something will happen to you in this city at that time of night.
