The Mystery of Lê From Hop Sing Laundromat →

After just one visit, the Hop Sing Laundromat became my favorite “secret place” to visit in Philadelphia. I had no idea the man working the door was the man behind the business, but it all makes sense now.

A known truth: Lê signed the lease for the space at 1029 Race Street on August 1, 2010. His stated intent? To open the best cocktail bar in the country, and nothing less.
