Veda, 1920 Chestnut St.
5-7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 6-8 p.m. Saturday-Sunday
The bar at this modern Indian bistro is tucked behind glass off the entrance, giving you views of Chestnut Street while sparing patrons in the dining room. Happy hour brings tasty specials all year. During Center City Sips, which started last week, the margaritas (that most Indian of cocktails) come down to just $6.
