About Coco's

Well, Where To Begin!?

Coco’s is the evolution of generational ownership. John Cokos Sr. owned numerous establishments in North Philly. John & his brother, Gus Constantine, following the direction & advice of their father opened King Zog’s in Camden, NJ in 1973.

After 9 successful years the brothers, still with the help & guidance of their dad, opened Coco’s @ 112 South 8th street in Philadelphia. Going from one city to the other was a risky proposition but it paid off! John & Gus weathered the early stages and established an eclectic, fun pub that survives and thrives ‘til today!

John & Gus stood by each other as brothers do for 20 years. As luck would have it, John & Gus bestowed their luck to an irish friend, Mike Callinan, to take over Gus’ position. Since then John & Mike have been trying & succeeding in giving you the best food, service & atmosphere!

Stay Awhile,

John & Mike
