Delco’s live music scene is as dynamic and diverse as Delco itself. Home to numerous venues that regularly showcase local and regional talent, your options are anything but limited when it comes to places offering good times and good tunes.
Lansdowne Folk Club
For 29 years, the all-volunteer Lansdowne Folk Club has brought folk, acoustic and blues music to the heart of Delco. The music happens in the ballroom of the Twentieth Century Club, an arts and crafts style building listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Boasting a beautiful restaurant, Irish pub, live entertainment venue, open air courtyard and sophisticated cocktail lounge, the space comes to life with a wide range of artists and performances.
Bringing the definition of re-purposing to life, War3house3 is an antique store by day and a performance venue at night. An eclectic mix of industrial and decorative arts fills the space that is home to live performances on Saturday nights; bringing a dose of the unique and odd – in the very best way! – to the suburban hamlet of Swarthmore.
Streetlight Kitchen & Bar
Located adjacent to the iconic Delco landmark, Drexelbrook, Streetlight Kitchen & Bar offers delicious comfort foods, an extensive drink menu, creek side views from its (seasonal) outdoor patio and a rotating list of entertainment that includes a live DJ and local favorites, Dueling Piano Dudes.
