“Plan on a long day and night of fun - you'll probably need a ride home....”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is the bar of bars that I wish had a location in every town. There are TVs everywhere - fin bartenders and waitresses - a mechanical bull and a stage outside with live bands - that is like a mini-stage you would find in a stadium. This place is so much fun you won't want to go home.

“Made for a great spot for out of towners' tailgating event”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

For a college football game we had an alumni tailgate at PBR at Xfinity Live. It's a cool place, easy to get to and nearby the stadium. I didn't expect much from the food but the brunch offerings were surprisingly good and ample. And, just as importantly for me, the beer selection was good. The open outdoor dining area made a great area to enjoy an early fall afternoon and huge and plentiful big screen TVs meant we got to catch all the other game action as well. A good spot for a good pre-game time.

“Great spot for sports fans”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

I've been to xfinity live at least 5 times before or during Phillies games. It's rarely crowded, but still has enough people that you don't feel like you're in a ghost town. The outdoor patio is a great spot with jenga, corn hole, ladder ball and a huge projection tv. My only complaint is that we were there during a phils game and it wasn't being shown on the big screen outside, so we had to go inside to watch it. There are several TVs inside, so you can watch 3 or 4 sporting events simultaneously.
There are a lot of food and drink options here, from a Victory bar/restaurant and a PBR bar with a mechanical bull to walk-up food counters where you can get Philly cheesesteaks and Chickies and Pete's crab fries.
Yesterday I was there for the first annual xtoberfest and had a great time. For $30 I got limited appetizers and unlimited beer refills (the steins they distributed were small--holding only 2-3 ounces). Several bars/stations of beer were located throughout the facility and they must have limited the number of tickets they sold because there was plenty of beer to go around for the entire five hour event. Things ran very smoothly and it never got sloppy or out of hand. The longest I waited in line for a beer was one minute, unlike other brewfests I've attended where the lines are ridiculously long.
This is definitely a great place for game day or if a special event is going on. I'm not sure how fun it would be on a non-game night, since there's not much in the area except for the stadiums, parking lots, and housing.

“Fun place for whatever type of nightlife you like”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I really enjoyed going to Xfinity Live this summer. I work at Citizens Bank Park, and it is a great place to go after the game. I love dancing in the middle of Xfinity, which is called the Arena. They always have a really fun DJ that takes requests, and allows people to dance on top of the DJ booth. There are live bands, a giant jenja game, beer bong, a mechanical bull, VIP sections, big screen TVs, and it right next to all of Philly's stadiums. You can wear pretty much anything there and it is always a good time. On Fridays and Saturdays they now have a cover after 11, and drinks are reasonably priced compared to Center City drink price. It has been a great time everytime I have been there.

“Fun place before, during or after games/concerts”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Visited on a Friday night with a Phillies game and a concert. It wasn't overly crowded, and it was easy to get a drink or food. I've been there before when it was almost impossible to move around. There are six restaurants and a Chickie's and Pete's stand. My favorite place is the Victory beer hall. The beer is excellent, it has a great German beer hall atmosphere, and a nice outside seating area with a fire pit. We ate at Broad Street Bullies pub. the food was good, not great, but the service was very good and they had a nice selection of beers. There are a number of large screens in the NBC sports arena as well as TVs in all of the restaurants.
