The City Tavern is a late-20th century building designed to be the replica of a historic 18th-century building which stood on the site. It is located at 138 South 2nd Street in Philadelphia, at the intersection of Second and Walnut Streets. The original 18th century building was frequented by the Founding Fathers of the United States and other distinctive people. High-profile events took place there, including the first anniversary celebration of the 4th of July.
The original building was partially burned down in the 20th century and the remains were demolished some years later. The present building is open to the public as a restaurant which uses typical 18th century recipes.
