We stayed close to this establishment and wandered in three days in a row. Something about this bar just kept drawing us back. We loved the beers and the atmosphere.

Best part is there are multiple floors, so you can find a spot you like best. The food is good, not superb, but very acceptable. Good location.

We were in Philly during a few really bad weather days, and this place was a block from the Radisson Blu hotel, so we decided to try it. What a treat! First of all, the happy hour is great. We got to sample a few appetizers for $5 each, and the drinks were very reasonable. We stayed all evening, because... More

We went for happy hour first and had some of the great appetizers for 5 bucks each the offer from 5 to 7, then a traditional irish meal with corned beef and cabbage for dinner. We met some friend there and really had a ball. They hyave a great selection of beers including Guiness. A great place to have some... More

Firstly, I recommend getting there before happy hour ends at 7pm. 5 dollars apps as big as your head Good selection of beer, including chimay on draft. Scotch eggs are a must, despite what your cardiologist might say :)

A terrific spot for a beer and filet sliders before the game last night. Cool staff, reasonable prices, good beer and scotches. The only reason I don't give this five stars is its already full enough most nights, and greedily, I would hate to see it go from full to overcrowded. But the word of mouth has already taken care...

A pretty decent place to stop in for a $4 Yeungling and a solid burger. The nachos were good too. We chose the Black Sheep due to it's location. It's only a short walk from the Radisson Blue Warwick hotel. I wouldn't say it's anything special but it was convenient, the food was good and the price was right so... More

Great for a winter night, hide in the basement with a beer and some high quality pub food, traditional and a little more upscale, including things like delicious gnocchi and high end sandwiches. The bar tendered are very friendly and it's a great place for a small group event, the managers are a joy to work with.

Probably you should expect a Philly pub to be noisy for a Friday happy hour before Christmas, and the Black Sheep was! It's a smallish space in a quaint old building near Rittenhouse Square, where we were going for a concert later. We loved looking out the window at the narrow old street and lovely row houses across the way,... More

Traditional Irish Pub with a great beer selection and authentic antique bar and fireplace making it a great place to go in the winter. The food is pretty good too.
