Our two Center City wine bars have helped elevate Philly’s wine scene while keeping it fun. Tria’s seasonally curated wine, cheese and beer menus showcase super-cool smaller producers who are driven by passion. The friendly Tria team will help you discover new flavor sensations if that’s your jawn. If you prefer, we’ll bring you more wine and leave you alone. It’s all good.
We love wine and it shows, but Tria above all is a community where guests come to relax and connect. There are no TVs or other distractions. The “concept” is for our guests to engage in conversation made livelier, deeper and cheerier by the wine. Cheers!

Discover Rittenhouse Square
Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
