West Girard Retail
Brewerytown’s rich heritage gives West Girard a unique feel, but a surge in population and the addition of several small businesses has begun to blur the boundaries with the nearby Fairmount and Francisville neighborhoods.
Businesses such as Music Box Records, Nagelberg Hardware, Girard Vet Clinic, Best In Show pet grooming, and the Bottom Dollar supermarket provide the neighborhood a crucial component of convenience. Restaurants including Butter’s Soul Food, Rybrew, Italian Express, and Era bring Brewerytown a local flavor. Organizations like Give and Go Athletics and Marathon Grill’s Urban Farm keep the community active and invested. And with Fairmount Park’s Lemon Hill and Kelly Drive, the Philadelphia Zoo, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Girard College all within a short walk, Brewerytown’s outlook remains poised for continued growth.
