Each month, we showcase a different person from a happening neighborhood in Philly. This month we’ll like to introduce you to graphic artist and nightlife connoisseur, Jake Weaver of Northern Liberties, also affectionately referred to as NoLibs by locals. 

A man of many talents, Jake describes himself as “an artist/musician who refuses to adhere to the conventional idea of being an "adult." Rightly so, a gamer, skater, graphic artists, and event host, Jake has called No Libs his home for over six years, hosting and DJ’ing events at popular haunts such as The Barbary and Kung Fu Necktie.

Considered as one of Philly’s most successful up-and-coming neighborhoods, Northern Liberties features a throng of international restaurants, eclectic pubs and trendy boutiques — all while maintaining an authentic artistic vibe. A short cab ride from Center City, the neighborhood lies north of Old City and west of the Delaware River.

Find out about Jake’s hood below! 


Philly 360° Q&A with NoLibs resident Jake Weaver.

How do you describe Northern Liberties?

A hodgepodge of what Philly was, is, and will become.

Favorite spots in your hood?

I love the entire area, but I go through phases. Currently, I'd say PYT for their ridiculous burgers and Standard Tap for its solid brunch menu. As far as shopping goes, you can find me at Exit Skate Shop on once a month buying kicks. If I'm trying to splurge, I'll go to Sole Control in the Piazza. Since I live so close to the Piazza, I can’t not go into Jinxed. They have some really cool furniture along with a lot of random 2nd hand items you don't necessarily realize you need until you stumble upon them.

What he likes about his ‘hood?

It’s very accessible.  I can pretty much walk 4 blocks in any direction and find what I'm looking for. The El is only a short walk away.

What should people know about his ‘hood?

It’s more than just a party destination, there are so many places to chill and just be here. You can grab coffee in a café or sit in a bar and meet a stranger from a different walk of life from yours and talk for hours. It’s unpretentious and laid back; in essence, it’s what Philly is all about.

Jake's NoLibs Itinerary: 

The Barbary, 951 Frankford Avenue | Live Music, Entertainment, Drinks, Nightlife
Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front Street | Live Music, Entertainment, Drinks, Nightlife 
PYT,  The Piazza - 1050 N. Hancock St | Burgers, Late Night Eats, Drinks

Earlier this summer, Philly welcomed the return of another exclusively-Philadelphia experience, BlackStar Film Festival.

For the third year in a row, BlackStar exploded back on the scene to shine an international spotlight on films, and filmmakers, that are broadening the definition and reach of black cinema here in the US, and around the globe. 

Founded in 2012 by Philly 360°'s only film ambassador Maori Holmes, BlackStar once again took over International House in University City with dozens of film screenings, workshops, panel discussion, mixers and more. From new school film luminaries like Kahlil Joseph, Terence Nance and Arthur Jafa to notable Philly performers, including soul singer Bilal and warrior poet Ursula Rucker, BlackStar attracts some of the top black creatives from around the country. And, Philly definitely came out to show these artists plenty of love! 

For BlackStar 2014, Philly 360° went behind the scene and talked with some of the key players about what makes this film festival, which was hailed as "The Black Sundance" by Ebony Magazine, a must-hit black cinematic experience.  

You can check out our video below.
