Neighborhoods: Northern Liberties/ Fishtown, North Philadelphia
The BEST place to see a show in the city. Intimate, but grand, Divey, but slick - no matter where you stand you'll have a great view of the band.
Awesome bands have rolled through for years at this neighborhood revitalizing anchor bar. You can get up close or watch from the 2nd floor.
Great place for a beer and some live music. A reliable classic amidst the all of the new trendy spots nearby.
ST in Fishtown – This bar seems to be a balance of the Standard Tap and the Ministry of Information. Good brew selection, hipster crowd, and odd combination of new and old in the decor. I don't know that I'd venture out of CC for this place, but i'd be a regular if I lived nearby.
Hipsters sip local brews--and escape Northern Liberties' crowds--at Fishtown's newest old bar. – The Scene
It would be easy to mistake the place for a dive, what with its glass-tile windows, wood paneling, red holiday lights and neon jukebox. But look closer, and you'll notice the red-and-white striped floor, shiny, silver open kitchen and artsy lights hanging over the red pool table. The customers are a tip-off, too: effortlessly hip film-crew members, indie rockers and artists escaping the now-trendy Northern Liberties. Scattered among the newcomers are a few Fishtown lifers who were perched on Brenda's stools before its boxer namesake sold it to the minds behind Standard Tap.
Come because it's the next cool place to chill. Then come back for the tasty and reasonably priced fare. Juicy, tender and garlicky pork tenderloin; generous and meaty flank steak; sausage sandwiches; tasty swordfish or lamb kabobs--all for less than $10--go great with $4 pints of Victory, Yards and Flying Fish.
