La Enchanta will specialize in tacos and other popular dishes including empanadas, churros and burritos, prepared quickly, deliciously and affordably, with both indoor and outdoor dining options, counter service and a “To Go” area for self-seating. Décor will be modern rustic chic using classic geometric tiles and bright colors mixed with traditional designs, all within the existing industrial architecture of la Placita, making the space feel fun, contemporary and new.
El Salon will have up to 5 rooms that can be joined together as a single room creating capacity for up to 250 people for sit down functions and up to 500 for cocktail parties or audience formats. El Salon will be a state-of-the-art, modern facility offering full customized catering for your special day. In addition to the indoor space, there’s an outdoor terrace and patio for ceremonies or cocktail parties separate from your sit-down celebration. The space includes rest rooms for your guests, a coat room, and the option of having separate preparation rooms for bridal parties. Whether you are planning a lavish wedding, an intimate family birthday or anniversary, or a special quinceañera, for your daughter or granddaughter, El Salon is the perfect venue close to home!
This outdoor covered multi-use space may house selected vendors as well as provide for a neighborhood gathering. This ideal outdoor patio, with its music and beautiful potted plants, provides a relaxing spot to take a break from shopping, grab a bite to eat or make it a destination on its own!
Our permanent marketplace for established vendors will provide secure, dedicated stores for year-round selling. Generous-sized spaces range from 100 to 600 square feet, and are affordably leased per month from $250 to $1,200.
For crafters or hobbyists who want to sell their wares, or even if you just want to sell some of your own household items, La Placita’s weekend Flea Market is the perfect solution! No need to put out signs or advertise, because we will do it for you. Outdoor spaces are $25 and up per day, and we offer attractive discounts for multiple-day and monthly rentals.
Urban Ecology Education Area
La Placita, in cooperation with the School District of Philadelphia, will provide the necessary resources for students to learn about native planting, erosion, urban water runoff, and more. Lead by experienced science teachers, these small group pods will conduct experiments and studies aimed at helping city residents create environments that are both healthy and eco-friendly.
