wdt_ID Bar / Lounge Name Location Address Website Info
44 a.bar Downtown Philli 1737 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19103 http://www.akitchenandbar.com/ For wine lovers, a.bar is a destination. It was named a 2022 semi-finalist for James Beard Foundation Outstanding Wine Program and The Rittenhouse bar is modern in both the decor and the menu, serving up innovative cocktails and featuring outstanding new organic and natural wines by winemakers making waves in the industry.
47 American Sardine Bar Downtown Philli 1800 Federal Street, Point Breeze. https://americansardinebar.com/ A food menu that never quits no matter who’s cooking in the kitchen (think: mushroom patty melts, super-seasonal salads, tinned fish boards, and, of course, sardine sandwiches), an outdoor patio space that feels like a party in your best friend’s backyard, and a staff that knows how to pour a farmhouse ale just as expertly as it does a shot of Jamo and a High Life.
48 Bloomsday Downtown Philli 414 South 2nd Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147 https://bloomsdaycafe.com/ Great wine, cocktails and coffee enjoyed alongside uncomplicated food and shared with friends… At Bloomsday, we believe in the simplicity of everyday pleasures. We like it best brewed slowly, prepared thoughtfully, and poured joyfully. We don’t do fussy. And because people have always loved a good drink in the company of good food, we do that too. Stay a while or just stop in. Here on the cobblestone shambles of Headhouse Square in Philadelphia, Bloomsday is a modern meeting place for friends, neighbors, and those just passing through.
49 Bob & Barbara’s Downtown Philli 1509 South Street, Grad Hospital. https://www.bobandbarbaras.com/ This near-legendary city dive bar is also a place for karaoke (Sunday nights), regular Thursday-night drag shows, and live jazz and “liquor-drinkin’ music” on Fridays and Saturdays.
50 Bok Bar Greater Philadelphia 800 Mifflin St, Philadelphia, PA 19148 https://www.bok-bar.com/ You’d never suspect the city’s best rooftop view exists on top of a former high school in a quiet Southeast Philadelphia neighborhood, but lo and behold, Bok Bar offers just that. The drinks menu is small but impressive, with a food menu for snacking. The rooftop is also, by way of being atop a school building, enormous. Mosey over if you just need a place to enjoy a beer and breathe.
51 Bourbon & Branch Downtown Philli 705 N 2nd St, Philadelphia, PA 19123 https://www.bourbonandbranchphilly.com/ Situated on busy 2nd Street in Northern Liberties, Bourbon and Branch offers a restaurant downstairs and an adorable upstairs bar with live music and a vast selection of whiskey, beer and inventive mixed drinks.
52 Cavanaugh’s Headhouse Downtown Philli 421 South 2nd Street, Society Hill. https://www.cavsheadhouse.com/ There are a couple of Cav’s in Philly. There’s the one in University City that’s always so full of youth and raucousness. There’s the one in Center City, tucked away on Sansom Street, a late-night draw for the Rittenhouse community of restaurant-industry workers. There’s the River Deck on Columbus Boulevard, which, as a deck, is very much its own thing. And then there’s the Cav’s on Headhouse Square, which operates mostly as, like, a bar … a neighborhood watering hole, no more, no less. It’s cavernous, multiple stories high, with seven different rooms (each of them offering slightly different moods and vibes) and a staff that knows its regulars well.
53 Charlie was a sinner Downtown Philli 131 S 13th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 https://charliewasasinner.com/ Who is Charlie and what exactly did they do? No one’s telling here, not at this dark and playful cocktail bar in Midtown Village. Their signature cocktails stand up with any in the city and their zero-proof options are more extensive than most. The all-vegan menu of small plates makes it stand out from the crowded Center City bar scene.
54 Dirty Franks Downtown Philli 347 S 13th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 https://www.facebook.com/dirtyfranksbar/ Dirty Franks, which opened in November 1933 (just a month before Prohibition was repealed), is the dive bar to end all dive bars. Join the classic Philly bar scene in this low-ceilinged, raucous joint, which is also a stop on a Mural Arts Philadelphia walking tour—thanks to its illustrated outdoor wall full of well-known Franks such as Sinatra, Avalon, and even Aretha Franklin.
55 Dolphin Tavern Downtown Philli 1539 South Broad Street, East Passyunk. https://www.dolphinphillyinfo.com/ After a particularly restless slumber, the premier dance club in South Philly came back to life this summer with a full stage and a legit sound system (swiped from the just-shuttered Boot & Saddle) for live bands, DJ sets, theme nights and karaoke. Plus dollar tacos every day.
56 Doobie’s Downtown Philli 2201 Lombard Street, Fitler Square. http://www.doobiesbarphilly.com/ Go here because the bartender will remember your name. Because the beer is cold and the cocktails are fast. And because there’s an entire locker filled with board games for you and all your friends.
57 Double Knot Downtown Philli 120 S 13th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 https://www.doubleknotphilly.com/ The main level of Double Knot functions as a cozy café, but Philly’s sushi connoisseurs know to expect more than coffee and pastries at this Midtown Village outpost. Downstairs, a dimly lit dining room serves a Japanese menu with sushi, sashimi, meaty entrees, and creative sides. Behind the bar, unique cocktails incorporate Japanese components like yuzu, Japanese plums, and cherry blossoms.
58 El Bar Downtown Philli 1356 North Front Street, Kensington. http://canarumbarla.com/ You go to El Bar for Citywides, a raucous bar, an extra-friendly staff, live entertainment, and, of course, its big ol’ twinkly-lit outdoor patio right under the rumbling El train.
59 Fountain Porter Downtown Philli 1601 S 10th St, Philadelphia, PA 19148 http://fountainporter.com/ Burgers at a neighborhood bar just hit different. At Fountain Porter, burgers are simply patties topped with lettuce, tomato, and onion stacked on a sesame seed bun, but when paired with one of the nearly 20 draft beers they’ve got on tap and glasses of natural wine, it’s perfection. Best of all, the burgers are $6. Fountain Porter is a solid choice if you’re in the mood for a no-frills corner bar.
60 Frankford Hall Downtown Philli 1210 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125 http://www.frankfordhall.com/?utm_source=Google%20My%20Business&utm_medium=Website%20Button It's Oktoberfest all year round at Frankford Hall, where you can munch on Bavarian pretzels and bratwurst while browsing through a huge selection of German and American beers on tap, bottles, cans, and beer cocktails (yes, beer sangria is a thing). Sit inside among the exposed brick and open windows or gather out back with a bunch of friends at the long wooden tables.
61 Franky Bradley’s Downtown Philli 1320 Chancellor St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 https://frankybradleys.com/ In a narrow alleyway off of 13th Street in the Gayborhood lies this gem that’s just loaded with character. You’ll see that as soon as you walk in the door, as you look over the dimly lit dining room decorated with vintage artwork—mostly of the female-focused, soft-porn variety—frilly lamps and even taxidermy fish. Grab a table for dinner or sit around the bar for a selection of beer—available on draft or in a bottle or can—wine and cocktails. The food menu features upscale bar fare that ranges from skirt steak and shrimp scampi to chicken wings and burgers. Upstairs, a performance space hosts a variety of shows throughout the month—from burlesque and drag shows to dance parties presided over by a solid lineup of local DJs.
62 Friday Saturday Sunday Downtown Philli 261 S 21st St, Philadelphia, PA 19103 http://fridaysaturdaysunday.com/ Follow bartender Paul MacDonald on Instagram to see what he’s mixing up behind the Friday Saturday Sunday bar. He’s always got something new that’s seasonal, tasty, and photogenic. Dinner service happens upstairs, but the light-filled downstairs is a cocktail and wine oasis — a place where spending a couple of hours at a white marble bar feels just right.
63 Good Dog Bar Downtown Philli 224 South 15th Street, Center City. https://gooddogbar.com/philadelphia/ After a thorough renovation last year, Good Dog brought on a new chef, installed a new menu (that still respects the crowd favorites), and found a new energy. But the bar didn’t forget how to mix a classic, the taps are ever full of local beers, and you can still get the legendary burger stuffed with Roquefort cheese.
64 Graffiti Bar Downtown Philli 124 S 13th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 https://www.sampanphilly.com/ In the back of Sampan restaurant in Midtown Village, Graffiti Bar, decorated with custom street art, serves daily cocktail specials under a modern clear ceiling. Catch the game on one of the wall-mounted televisions while taking in offerings like the cheap satay happy hour.
65 Hop Sing Laundromat Downtown Philli 1029 Race St, Philadelphia, PA https://hopsinglaundromat.com/ Put away the cell phone, please. This speakeasy has rules. Respect them for a chance to enjoy some of the city’s very best cocktails inside a candlelit spot national magazines have ranked among the greatest bars in the country. Legend has it owner Lê took a trip through 48 states, where he visited dozens of bars in search of the best one. Not finding it, he returned to Philly and opened his own.
66 Interstate Draft House Downtown Philli 1235 E Palmer St, Philadelphia, PA 19125 https://interstatedrafthouse.com/ If the only thing Interstate Draft House was ever known for was being the originator of the “Fishtown Iced Tea,” it still might have made this list. But this is an outstanding neighborhood bar that every part of the city would be proud to claim for its own. It’s the kind of place where you go to catch a college hoops game on a Friday afternoon and find yourself leaving early Saturday morning. There’s no reason to change locations, with an expansive tap list and a Southern-inspired bar menu that’s much better than it needs to be. And, of course, the signature Fishtown Iced Tea, a deceptively smooth combination of vodka, rum, tequila, and Triple Sec that goes down nearly as easy as the cartons of Arctic Splash that inspired it.
69 John & Peter’s Downtown Philli 96 South Main Street, New Hope. https://www.johnandpeters.com/ A beloved and dive-y bar tucked away just off the main drag, with great burgers, a seasoned staff, and a tiny stage in the back for rockin’ and rollin’.
70 Johnny Brenda’s Downtown Philli 1201 North Frankford Avenue, Fishtown. https://johnnybrendas.com/ After 15 years, JB’s has become an iconic part of the Philly scene. What’s remarkable is that a place that’s already a triple threat (live music, local beer on tap, and a menu better than anyone has a right to expect) keeps improving, year after year.
71 Knock Restaurant and Bar Downtown Philli 225 S 12th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 https://www.knockphl.com/ What Knock lacks in a lively atmosphere, it makes up for with an intrepid team of bartenders who put heart and soul into their classic cocktail creations. The Makers Manhattan is a particular winner, a lightly spicy, booze-forward concoction that finds balance with just the right amount of sweet vermouth. Abutting the bar area is a fine dining area serving a mix of pub grub and upscale New American fare. Grab a table outside when it’s warm to enjoy some prime people-watching from behind your shades.
72 Le Caveau Downtown Philli 614 S 7th St, Philadelphia, PA 19147 http://www.lecaveaubar.com/ Located above The Good King Tavern is a wine bar for folks who love to nerd out about wine. Le Caveau offers a wine list loaded with unique vintages and natural wines that pair well with their small but might snack menu featuring chips and roe as well as a daily selection of cheese and charcuterie. For an extra flavorful expedition for your taste buds, stop by on Tuesday nights for Night Class and try their monthly themed menu.
73 Local 44 Downtown Philli 4333 Spruce St, Philadelphia, PA 19104 http://www.local44beerbar.com/ Stop into West Philly mainstay Local 44 after work to be greeted by the friendly bar staff, who will serve you delicious food and excellent craft beer. The menu boasts vegan and vegetarian options, and you can grab a drink to go from the bottle shop on your way home.
74 Locust Rendezvous Downtown Philli 1415 Locust St, Philadelphia, PA 19102 https://locustrendezvous.com/ The Vous” is the true locals' bar in Center City, the one we don’t tell the tourists about. “The Vous Crew” has been at it since 1989, and while the times change, the formula doesn’t. This is where your bar would go for a drink, if it could. The bio on an Instagram account claiming to belong to the Vous reads simply, “a bar’s bar.” The beer is cold and cheap, especially for the neighborhood. The food will never leave you hungry. The waitress will learn your name, if not on the first visit, the second. She probably served your dad at Happy Hour in 1996. How can you not love a bar that filmed a charmingly earnest commercial during the pandemic to remind the city to “stay strong?
75 Lou & Choos Lounge Downtown Philli 2101 W Hunting Park Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19140 https://linktr.ee/louandchoos Hunting Park has been the home of this Black-owned bar for years. Lou & Choos is more than just a place to grab a beer or impressive $12 cocktails — it’s a diverse institution for fun, friends, and cheers.
76 Lucky’s Last Chance - Manayunk Downtown Philli 4421 Main St, Philadelphia, PA 19127 https://luckyslastchance.com/ Lucky’s Last Chance may be the last bar you see at one end of Manayunk’s main street, but it’s anything but an afterthought. In a neighborhood best known for its college haunts, Lucky’s is a grown-up option that should be a first choice for anyone who loves craft beer and burgers. It’s a proper bar, but one that never loses a sense of fun that shows itself through an eclectic decor, off-menu items that reach cult-like status, a late-night brunch, and burgers that carry names like “Pickle Monster” and “PB & Bacon.
77 Martha Downtown Philli 2113 East York Street, Kensington. https://www.marthakensington.com/ If you (like everyone) like pickles, local booze, kombucha, charcuterie and bocce ball, then you (like everyone) will love Martha.
78 Middle Child Clubhouse Downtown Philli 1232 N Front St, Philadelphia, PA 19122 https://middlechildphilly.com/ Like many of Philadelphia’s best bars, Middle Child Clubhouse is more than just a great list of beers, wines, and cocktails — it’s a very fun hangout spot with an eclectic dinner menu and extremely friendly serving staff. The cocktails just hit different, though. The menu is ever-changing and developed by cocktail impresario Brandon Thrash, and everything from seawater margaritas to classic negronis to seasonal special drinks will satisfy any imbiber.
79 Monk’s Café Downtown Philli 264 South 16th Street, Rittenhouse. https://www.monkscafe.com/ Like a church where beer nerds worship, Monk’s is a love letter to Belgian beers, mussels and frites, potato salad and pub culture.
80 New Wave Cafe Downtown Philli 784 South 3rd Street, Queen Village. https://www.newwavecafe.com/ What is it about New Wave that makes it so appealing? In reality, it’s very much Just A Bar. A neighborhood watering hole that doesn’t specialize in anything specific — no fussy wines; craft beers, sure, but nothing too crazy; the food is classic gastropub Americana. Maybe what makes New Wave so wonderful is that it lives in the negative space of all the others: friendly when so many staffs are snobby; efficient when other spots keep you waiting; a bar and kitchen that reliably keep the doors open at times when so many bars choose to close theirs.
81 Ortlieb’s Downtown Philli 847 North 3rd Street, Northern Liberties. https://ortliebsphilly.com/ Ideally, there’d be an Ortlieb’s in every neighborhood — a place where local chefs can pop up with their newfangled concepts, where there are taco specials some days and bingo and karaoke nights on others. And for those times when we’re jonesing for something new to do, something exciting, there’s Ortlieb’s small stage — at times, the first stage for many of the city’s young musical talents. Call Northern Liberties lucky.
82 Oscar’s Tavern Downtown Philli 1524 Sansom St, Philadelphia, PA 19102 A refreshing juxtaposition from the posh-ness of nearby Rittenhouse Square, Oscar’s Tavern is a Center City staple when you want to bypass all the fancy-pants cocktail lounges and wine dens in the area for cheap beers, greasy pub grub, and friendly yet take-no-bullshit waitstaff. The joint, which opened in 1972, has an almost diner-like feel, decked out with wood-paneled walls, a lineup of stools at the bar, and a row of ripped red-vinyl booths that fill up fast when the after-work crowd rolls in. In the back, you’ll find tables, single-stall bathrooms, and a jukebox cranking nostalgic tunes. This is a Philly dive bar at its very best.
83 Philadelphia Distilling Downtown Philli 25 E Allen St, Philadelphia, PA 19123 http://philadelphiadistilling.com/ The distillery behind popular craft gin Bluecoat (and a number of other boozy products) has a 13,000-square-foot home in an 1800s-era Fishtown warehouse. It’s open to the public not just for tours, but with a full bar, a patio, and a spacious lounge outfitted with leather furniture. Bartenders shake up and stir creative cocktails that feature Philadelphia Distilling’s signature spirits.
84 Pickering Creek Inn Downtown Philli 37 East Bridge Street, Phoenixville. https://www.facebook.com/p/Pickering-Creek-Inn-100071582461258/ It’s a town stalwart, but one with great craft beer, live music, solid wings, half-price drafts at happy hour, and $2.50 Yuenglings during the weekly “Karaoke Shitshow.”
85 R&D Downtown Philli 1206 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125 http://rdphilly.com/ Aaron Deary — who is also behind the drinks list at Suraya — runs the show at R&D Cocktail Bar, with excellent drinks specialist Resa Mueller behind the bar. Featuring a mid-century aesthetic and small bites on the food menu, the moody bar has a cocktail list that changes regularly, with themes like 1950s and tiki.
86 Ranstead Room Downtown Philli 2013 Ranstead St, Philadelphia, PA https://ransteadroom.com/ When Stephen Starr is involved, one thing is pretty much guaranteed: There is going to be a concept. Swing around the corner from his lively Mexican restaurant El Rey and down an alley to find the speakeasy-style Ranstead Room. Inside the intimate spot, choose a drink from a focused menu that takes its cues from spirit-forward, classic cocktails, including throwbacks like smashes and flips.
87 Ray’s Happy Birthday Bar Downtown Philli 1200 E Passyunk Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19147 https://www.thehappybirthdaybar.com/ Way back in 1938, proprietor Anthony “Ray” Capozzoli greeted everyone who crossed the threshold of Ray’s with a booming “Happy Birthday!”—hence the current moniker. Take your birthday shot (complete with a candle tucked into a clever holder) at the long oak bar and enjoy live music, including a popular open mic night on the first and third Tuesday of each month and karaoke every Friday.
88 Southwark Downtown Philli Southwark, Philadelphia, PA 19147 This Queen Village mainstay has something for everyone at a bar that serves the most classic cocktails and imaginary libations simultaneously. With drinks called “chaos & Mondays,” “what do witches do,” and “get off your horse,” it’s not hard to imagine why both neighbors and tourists love this spot.
89 Spin Downtown Philli 211 South 15th Street, Center City. https://wearespin.com/location/philadelphia/ It’s a 12,000-square-foot ping-pong club and bar with a pub menu, scratch-and-sniff wallpaper, a manifesto (something about uniting the world through table tennis), and drinks named the Topspin, the Backspin and the Fishtown Throwdown. Sure, it’s a chain out of New York. But it’s still a fantastic night out.
90 Standard Tap Downtown Philli 901 North 2nd Street, Northern Liberties. https://standardtap.com/ Philly bars aren’t exactly impervious to the pressures of new bar trends. Standard Tap remains unflappable, sticking to what it does best (local, quality products; great service) but never resting on its laurels.
91 Superfolie Downtown Philli 1602 Spruce St, Philadelphia, PA 19103 https://www.superfoliephl.com/ One of the newest bars in Rittenhouse is serving up rare wines in a sophisticated manner. Come to this fancy hole-in-a-wall for freezer martinis, white wine from Macedonia, and Victorine de Chastenay bubbly, and more memorable libations.
92 Tattooed Mom Downtown Philli 530 South St, Philadelphia, PA http://tattooedmomphilly.com/ With its green walls full of art and tchotchkes, vintage furniture, candy on the tables, and punk-leaning crowd, Tattooed Mom has fit right into its neighborhood since it opened two decades ago. Beer offerings — in bottles and on tap — are plentiful and the food menu is full of delicious fried snacks and sandwiches, including a very good vegan selection. Cocktail-wise, try a pickletini.
93 Tavern on Camac Downtown Philli 243 South Camac Street, Midtown Village. https://www.tavernoncamac.com/ It’s good to have a place like Tavern on Camac in your pocket. It draws a big, loud, fun crowd; pours the drinks strong; and shakes the dust from the rafters with show tunes, Broadway standards and pop hits. There’s also dancing upstairs, for those after a more raucous night.
94 Teresa’s Next Door Downtown Philli 126 North Wayne Avenue, Wayne. https://www.facebook.com/teresascafeandnextdoor/ Twenty-eight taps with interesting brews, a curated wine list (and shop!), lots of whiskeys, and tenders who know the difference between mixing with Schweppes and Fever-Tree — add it all up (it’s a really comfortable place to drink, too) and you get a 2018 James Beard semi-finalist for Outstanding Bar Program. That Teresa’s didn’t win was a crime.
95 The Best Bars for Singing, Dancing, and Playing Dahlak Downtown Philli 4708 Baltimore Avenue, University City. Yes, it has great Ethiopian and Eritrean food. Yes, it has a bar. But on Tuesday nights, Dahlak is also a destination for West Philly karaoke fans looking to get loud.
96 The Bishop’s Collar Downtown Philli 2349 Fairmount Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19130 https://thebishopscollar.com/ If you’re looking for a friendly neighborhood bar, stop into the Bishop’s Collar, where they serve “salvation by the pint” by way of a good beer selection, a hip crowd, and lots of regulars. Find a seat on one of the church pews, old Veterans Stadium chairs, or outdoor tables lining the sidewalk.
97 The Greeks Downtown Philli 239 Haverford Avenue, Narberth. https://www.facebook.com/TheGreeksofNarberth/ A Narberth institution since 1922 (!), the Greeks is open during the day and into the night. It’s beloved by locals and barflies across the region, and, most importantly, there are plenty of booths and corners to keep things quiet and cozy.
98 The International Downtown Philli 1624 North Front Street, Kensington. https://www.theintlbar.com/ An internationally themed bar called the International feels very … of a time, right? This place might not have worked in different hands, but it does here, because the Johnny Brenda’s team understands cool on a level that’s more than mere imitation. It’s not just a look — not just the downstairs DJ and the brickwork, but an understanding that sherries on tap are cool. That amari is having a moment. That different castes of serious drinkers are having their own wild obsessions with Siberian wines and rare Belgian sours. They made a place where (however inconceivably) all those things work together so that no matter your mood — no matter what kind of experience you’re looking to have — this is where you want to be.
99 The Library Bar Downtown Philli 210 W Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, PA 19103 https://www.rittenhousehotel.com/dining/librarybar Whether you prefer your scotch straight or have a hankering for an old-fashioned, the brown liquor selection at the Library Bar is top-notch. Nestled within the Rittenhouse Hotel, the Library Bar exudes the kind of quiet sexiness that you want in a luxe hotel bar experience. And yes, bibliophiles can browse the bar’s small library, so don’t be scared to show up alone for a stiff nightcap and a leisurely read by the front-room fire.
100 The Lunar Inn Downtown Philli 3124 Richmond Street, Port Richmond https://www.lunarinn.com/ Gray and bunkerish on the outside, comfy and welcoming on the inside, with a 100-year-old bar and an attached bottle shop (Tinys), the Lunar Inn is like a study in what would happen if you assembled a multidisciplinary dream team of industry pros and let them all loose in a neighborhood in transition with the goal of creating the perfect bar. So whether you think “perfect” means PBR and a plate of chicken wings or a tofu banh mi and a glass of natty wine, Lunar Inn is it. 3124 Richmond Street, Port Richmond.
101 The Ripplewood Downtown Philli 29 East Lancaster Avenue, Ardmore. https://www.ripplewoodbar.com/ The Rip’s staff takes great pride in their cocktail craftsmanship. And thank God they do, because without them, Ardmore would still be thirsting for a place that can shake up a decent daiquiri, let alone a great one.
102 The Trestle Inn Downtown Philli 339 N 11th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 https://thetrestleinn.com/ The Trestle Inn hosts go-go shows straight out of the 1960s and 70s. Open Thursday through Saturday, this watering hole has been a haven for a colorful assortment of patrons ranging from circus performers to traveling salesmen for more than one hundred years. If you can’t choose between the seemingly unlimited selection of whiskey and rye, opt for a flight and sample several varieties.
103 Three Monkeys Café Downtown Philli 9645 James St, Philadelphia, PA 19114 https://3monkeyscafe.com/ Located steps away from the Torresdale Train Station in the Northeast, Three Monkeys is the kind of place that will make you forget about your daily commute. This unique bar has something for every kind of drinking mood. For a classic cocktail, there’s a vintage pub, complete with a hand-carved, turn-of-the-century bar that was rescued from an old Kensington bar room. For those feeling more adventurous, Monkey Court and Tree Bar make up an outdoor courtyard and patio with Key West vibes. There’s even a formal Victorian dining area called Risdon Ferry Dining Room.
104 Time Downtown Philli 1315 Sansom St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 https://www.timerestaurant.net/ A stalwart bar, music club, and restaurant just off the always-busy 13th Street corridor, Time hosts live local musicians every night it’s open, their jazz/rock/experimental sounds floating out onto Sansom Street through big picture windows that open onto the sidewalk. There’s also an under-the-radar second-floor lounge that hosts DJs and unorthodox bookings like poetry and erotic fiction readings.
105 Tinsel Downtown Philli 116 South 12th Street, Midtown Village. https://www.facebook.com/Tinselphilly Sometimes you want your bar to be open during the holidays, and sometimes you want your bar to be decked out for the holidays. And for those times when you want both, there’s Tinsel.
106 Watkins Drinkery Downtown Philli 1712 South 10th Street, East Passyunk. http://facebook.com/watkinsdrinkery A dependable bar on a sleepy corner just off East Passyunk Avenue where owner Jonn Klein and his staff run an incredibly friendly, no-B.S. operation. The menu is heavy on craft beer, the kitchen stays open late doing standard pub fare (plus some not-so-standard game-meat specials), and there’s a game room upstairs that, on the best nights, you’ll have all to yourself, with a pool table, darts, and an old Pac-Man machine.
