Philadelphia has always been an avid (and occasionally rabid) sports town, but in the aftermath of the Eagles’ cathartic Super Bowl victory, the sports love feels even more palpable. More than ever, Philly fans are stepping out of their living rooms and filtering into their neighborhood sports bars and microbreweries in search of gameday camaraderie.
But just as your living room is your ultimate comfort zone, so too do you want a sports bar that suits your aesthetic needs. With that in mind, we’ve gathered up some of the best sports bars across Philadelphia -- from South Philly to Olde City to the Gayborhood -- to provide a full spectrum of options for local sports fans. Whether you prefer a more laid-back, mellow pub, or you seek shoulder-to-shoulder crowds and a 20-foot screen, you’ll find a home in (at least) one of the best sports bars in Philly.
Editor’s Note: Each of these bars offers great rotating Happy Hour specials; in fact, the specials shapeshift so frequently that we opted to leave them out entirely. Check out each bar’s website and Facebook page for current info on available food and drink deals.
