The Westbury: Where History & Style Meet Convenience
The Westbury has been a staple of the Philadelphia landscape for almost a century. Built in 1928, The Westbury operated as the luxurious Westbury Hotel until the 1940s, when it transformed into The Westbury Grill. The popular restaurant and music bar catered to Broad Street theater and concert-goers and encouraged them to stop by, “for a dining thrill” as seen in a 1948 Billboard Magazine ad.
In the 1960s, The Westbury Grill became The Westbury Bar. The Westbury Bar was hugely successful in the LGBTQ community. It was listed in multiple guides and remained a mainstay of the gay community for decades. The Westbury Bar changed locations in the 80s, leaving room for The Westbury apartments to emerge.
Today, this historic high rise apartment building is an emblem of the Art Deco period. Antique elevator dials and mail chutes adorn multiple floors, while the lobby’s ornate chandelier and painted ceiling gleam in gold. Onsite laundry, bike storage, garage parking, and a nightly concierge offer the convenience of modern living amidst the glamour of 1920s architecture.
