Love this bar! Mariel is the best bartender! A small bar in south Philly let us come eat our cheesesteaks inside on a cold day. A very comfortable and welcoming place with a great beer selection!

Simple pub but as well as the standard tap fare, has some nice craft beer as well. If you like IPAs, they have a couple on tap, local Philadelphia crafts. Cool decor along with some working retro arcade games (remember Ms. Pacman, anyone?). Recommend.

Mariel was more interested in a couple of friends and leaving bar to go to her car out front and smoke cigs or something. I was there 2 nights prior and great bartender, a lean guy with an infectious laugh gave great service. He is...More
