Paint The Town

When you live at The Royal Athena, equally convenient to Bala Cynwyd and Manayunk, you’ll find nothing is out of reach. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite at a casual cafe or a three course meal at a fine dining establishment, you can enjoy the flavors of Philly all along one walkable street. Manayunk’s famous al fresco dining scene, along Main Street or overlooking the river, is the perfect place to catch up with friends and loved ones. Nestled along the banks of the Schuylkill River and the Manayunk Canal and Tow Path, the commercial district is lined with renovated Victorian storefronts and mill buildings.
