STILL THE BEST DAMN BAR IN OLD CITY – Drinker's Tavern has been receiveing quite a bit of attention in Old City. Is it the $1 Ripcords? The $2 Jager shots? How about the $2 Bud, & PBR? $3 Pitchers daily? It is by far one of the chillest places in Old City, a place where cheap drinks flow freely, a killer Rock N' Roll jukebox pumps out favourites, and bartenders have both flair and personality. My weakness is Jack Daniels, something I find plenty of when I visit this respite. I am also terribly fond of the inviting hum of the Jager machine. Palmer rocks, Sean cracks me up and Carla ia a doll. These bartenders know how to promote a good time. I am happy to see that they have not sold out to the Old City "too cool for you" attitude. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!
Heed the warning: DRINKER'S – Never has a bar in Philly been so aptly named. However, it could be even more appropriately named: Riffraff; Obliterated Frat Boys; or Sloppy, Stumbling Drunk Girl. For most of us, the sight of a loud and obnoxious drunk guy causing a scene in public is rare since we left college. At Drinker's Taver, it is the norm, and they don't apologize for it, which is the one redeeming quality of the place. The place sells PBR in the can for the expressed purpose of "shot-gunning" them. A round of for the bar is a mere $30. And, if you a skilled enough to sink a quarter in a top shelf bucket behind the bar, the bar gets a round of beers. So, like the name says, this place is for Drinkers - don't say you weren't warned.
