Philadelphia Guide: WM Mulherin’s Sons
The birthplace of a nation is experiencing a renaissance as a top tourist destination. The first World Heritage City within the United States, Philadelphia boasts a rich history, a host of cultural sites and a new wave of beautifully conceived boutique hotels offering modern convenience and old-world charm. We find Philly fine.
A three-storey 100-year-old whiskey blending and bottling facility lay abandoned for several years until its restoration began in 2014. When work was completed in mid 2016, the building that once belonged to Irish entrepreneur and whiskey baron William J Mulherin had become a unique new boutique property that functions without a 24-hour lobby. The former whiskey distillery has four suites all with fully-equipped kitchens, custom-made furniture, vintage rugs and carefully selected artworks. Downstairs, a modern rustic Italian restaurant invites you to leave your stylish accommodation for pizza.
