1. The American Pub 1500 Market St, Philadelphia, PA 19102

Nestled in Centre Square's underground concourse and within spitting distance of the Clothespin, TAP's a traditional, 120-seat tile-floored alehouse/eatery with a 25-seat wraparound bar and seven plasmas amidst dark wood wainscoting and crown molding bordering walls tastefully populated with Americana collectibles, like framed '40s and '50s auto ads, old-time Yuengling and Ziegfeld Follies posters, a decades-strong collection of promotional Iron City beer cans, and a mold of Strawbridge & Clothier's Seal of Confidence -- nothing sells gear like a cocksure pinniped.
