Phillies Bars Around the Globe

Posted by Brian Michael, Sun, April 27, 2008 09:16 PM | | Comments: 357

Sometimes you might find yourself in the unfortunate situation of not being in the Philadelphia area during Phillies game. The information below will help you track down your local Phillies bar wherever you might be. The bars range from hardcore Philly joints complete with authentic cheesesteaks to the local watering hole that is frequented by Phillies fans. If you have suggestions for a place we should include on the list, please send us an email or leave a comment below.

    I don’t want to dump cold water on this very worthy project but I have to take issue with the two bars listed for DC.

    I’m a Bucks County native who’s have lived in DC for 10 years. I’ve been to the Cap Lounge more than a few times and haven’t seen so much as a Phillies pennant on the walls. If that bar could be considered a baseball bar at all — its much more about soccer and football — it’s a place to gather before heading down to a Nats game.

    Rhino Bar has a rep for being a big Iggles fan hangout it bills itself as a Red Sox hangout.

    If I’m missing out one something, somebody please let me know. I’m sick of having bartenders switch the Phils off in the 7th inning because a bunch of Yankees fans came in to watch their game and outnumbered me.

      So far the only place for phillies games I have found in dc is boundry stone on first and Rhode Island ….jersey guys and huge Eagles fans. Like the
      Rhino but have a better time at boundry stone for Eagles games. But they play all the phils games as well.

    I also live in DC and included those places because I have frequently run into Phillies fans there; however your assessment is spot on. Neither place has Phillies gear on the walls…yet. Part of this project is to get people to start congregating at those places more and cement their status as Phillies bars. If you have better suggestions for DC, please let me know. If not, pick a day and I’ll meet you there for a game and some beers and we’ll show them benefit of catering to Phillies fans.

    I used to go to Rhino’s all the time as well when I lived down there. Definitely a red sox bar. Amazing sundays for eagles games though.

    Living in New York, you see a huge variety of bars that taylored towards sports teams outside of the NY area. I have seen Florida Gator, Ohio State, Red Sox, Chicago, North Carolina, etc. Wogie’s is the only Philly place. Wogie’s does have great cheesestaeks, and was a good spot during the playoffs last year, but the West Village is not the easiest place to get to for many people in other areas. There must be another place in NYC that we can go to for Philly games.

    On a side note, I use to live in Queens for a short period and would go to Mets bars in my Phillies hat and/or jersey and Mets fans would try to talk trash or whatever. I must say that their hygene was enough to go search for another place to watch the games, but I have yet to find anywhere close by.

    Very worthwhile project!! I’ll snoop around Frederick, MD (near where I live), and see what I can find. It’s difficult with the O’s, Nats, Yanks, and Red Sox fans.

    Right on. Being in Northern California, I’ll have to check out Kezar in SF the next time I am down there.

    How come there are no bars listed for the HOME town of Philadelphia????

    I thought of that. I figured you could walk into any bar in Philly and catch a game. I will put up a few though. Any suggestions other than Chickie’s?

    Colin’s Pub in Flagstaff Arizona. Good people there and all Phillies fans.

    - Byrne’s Tavern at Richmond & Westmoreland…and they have the best wings in the world
    - General Grant’s on Grant Avenue just east of the Boulevard
    - McGillin’s on Drury Street (off Juniper betw Sansom and Chestnut)
    - Paddy Whack’s at Boulevard & Comly (and Steve’s Steaks is next door)

    Just a few suggestions among the many great Philly stops.

    Byrne’s was hallowed ground for me – it was the one place every young Port Richmond boy wanted to get into. Never did. Hopefully soon.

    Laspada’s Hoagie shop in Clearwater is filled with Phillies and Eagles stuff on all of the walls. The owners are from Delaware county, PA

    Pat’s in Denver sucks. Public House is a better Philly bar, be it Phils or Eagles. Its on Blake between 19th and 20th, across from Coors Field.

    • Posts: 0 Dan

      Really? I rather like Pat’s. Had all 4 major teams represented throughout the bar: Flyers, Phillies, Eagles, and Nittany Lions ;)

      • Posts: 0 Mike B

        Agreed. Haven’t been to Pat’s for baseball, but on Sundays it is wall-to-wall with Eagles fans. Cheesesteak isn’t great but watching the game it’s almost like being back home.

    “How come there are no bars listed for the HOME town of Philadelphia????”

    Because, Karla, every bar in the city plays Phillies games. Or, at least, you’d be (very) hard pressed to find a bar inside the city that supports another team outside of the Phils. In fact, I can’t remember ever being in a bar inside the city limits or Montgomery County where another team was on instead of the Phillies.

    I forgot that that’s a no BS assesment from a guy whose been in Philadelphia bars for about 15 years now. But please, everyone, if you know of anywhere in southern UK (specifically Southampton), please let me know. I have mlb.tv, but it’s not the same as hanging out in the bar with my friends. Also, I walked by the Sports Cafe in London on Sunday, and they had the NBA playoffs on, which, while American, is still not baseball. Please help!!!

    Chris, I was at Public House in Denver last week when the Phils were in town and we were the only ones in the bar. Although it was opened by the same people that run the Philly Public House, it’s definitely not a Philly bar like Pat’s. Why don’t you like it? We had a blast, check out the pictures.

    Park, you need to go to Sports Cafe when there is baseball on, which usually means midnight London time. If you go on one-pound beer nights, you’ll find tons of American college kids, some of which are bound to be Phillies fans. You can also watch the Sunday and Wednesday ESPN games on Channel 4. The baseball show also has a section on the Channel 4 web site with a good message board and fantasy league. I’m sure you can find Phillies fans on there – I did when I lived there.

    Where is Pat’s in Denver? I live in Colorado Springs and head up to LoDo about 10 times a year to watch the Rocks. I usually drop by Jackson’s All-American Grill before the game. It was nice how the Phillies swept the Rocks in that two game series, I just wish the Phils would come here later in the season when it is warmer.

  • Posts: 0 Colorado Doug

    Ohh nevermind, I see Pat’s is at 16th and Market. I will have to check it out.

    Does anyone know of any in Pittsburgh!?!? There has to be, right? I know there are tons of Phillies fans there. But I’m going there for school and I just don’t know what I’m going to do when I find myself without them. =(

    I lived in pittsburrgh for 6 years, and I do think they have one there but I cant remember what it is called. Its not in any of the commonly frequented portions of the city thats for sure.

    I grew up in Upper Darby Pa. I now live in Las Vegas Nv. I always watch the Phillies when they are on ESPN

    I second the motion for some information on the Pittsburgh scene. I attended all three games at PNC Park last weekend and there were possibly more Phils fans than Buccos there. Where does everybody go to watch the televised games? I know that Peter’s Pub on Pitt’s campus is the place to watch Eagles games during the season, but I don’t know of any place to watch the Phils. Fox and Hound on McKnight Road has the MLB package and will put the game on if you ask, but the two times I went there (last season’s final regular season game and this year’s opener) me and my buddies were the only Phils fans there. Any more information would be greatly appreciated!

    I’ve been in Pittsburgh 3 years, and I’ve yet to find a “Phillies bar.” I’ve found that no one is really interested in baseball out here, so it’s refreshing to hear that yinz are interested.

    If you want a decent sports bar, there’s Buffalo Blues in Shadyside, Silky’s in Bloomfield and Squirrel Hill, or Fannatics in Squirrel Hill. I’ll try to do some research to see if these places, or any others, have the MLB package.

    haha I’m by no means a yinzer, just a transplant from back east earning a degree at Pitt. And in defense of my friends who are Pirates fans, a lot of people do care about the Bucco’s, it’s just hard to root for a team that has had a losing record in 13 straight seasons and counting. If the front office would act like they actually cared about the team, you’d see a lot more support from the Pittsburgh community. I’d also like to see the Pirates moved to the N.L. east. Not only would all of those easy wins help the Phils, but there also once was a great PA rivalry going on. Regardless, the Pirates suck and the Phillies don’t, so lets go Phils! Julie, make sure you post the results of your research!

    I manage a coffee shop in Lancaster, PA, we aren’t open at night, but we have every afternoon game on 4 flat screens. It’s obviously not a bar, but a great place to catch a day-time game.
    Gold Cafe
    1640 Old Philadelphia Pk.
    Lanc, PA
    Make sure you come to this location, the other one isn’t so Phillies friendly.
    We’re a bank too, so you can tell your boss you are leaving work to do some banking.

    I wholly agree that the Pirates should be in NL East. I lived in shadyside from graduate school until i moved back here and oakland before that. i miss peters pub. when i lived in shadyside i would watch games at the shadyside saloon or even the harris grill (heard it burned down), but they werent philly-friendly there. i cant remember an official phillies bar. there are places where theyll put it on for you though. if the pirates ownership cared about winning they would make a TON of money off of that ballpark. its the best ballpark in the majors (even better than our own CBP) because it is right on the water and you can see the whole of downtown from the grandstands. ahhh, good times. in the meantime, ill enjoy our CBP.

    Jordan, I’m going to Pitt!! =)

  • Posts: 0 Clare

    Oh and I’m not from Pittsburgh either, Julie!

  • Posts: 0 Julie

    Don’t worry, I didn’t assume that any of you were yinzers. I was just seeing if you’d pick up on it. I’m a transplant also – originally from Philly but here for grad school at Pitt. Geoff, good news – Harris Grill is back, and free all you can eat bacon on Tuesday nights is back too! Jordan, I agree that it’s tough to be a Buccos fan…gotta love that ballpark though!

    Ok, so I did some research and here’s what I found regarding who has the MLB extra innings package:

    Buffalo Blues in Shadyside – NO
    Fanattics in Squirell Hill – NO
    Silky’s in Squirell Hill – NO
    Peter’s Pub – NO
    Damon’s at the Waterfront – NO
    Dave and Busters at the Waterfront – YES
    Buffalo Wild Wings at the Pointe at Robinson Town Center – YES

    Seems like D&B and BWW will put on the games if you ask and if there are no other conflicts (Steelers, Pens, etc.). By no means are these Phillies bars, but this may be the best you’re going to get out here… Let me know if anyone else has ideas of where else to go!

    You have to love these Pitt kids showing support for the old red and white pinstripes. Kimmie, I told some people back home about your coffee shop. Sounds like a cool place, although they all said they’d rather drink a Lancaster Milk Stout while watching the Phils over a latte (nothing personal!). I grew up in Ephrata so I was pleased to see some hometown news! Clare, what year are you/what’s your major? Julie, good work on calling around, although the results weren’t fantastic. The only other option I can think of is my living room, since I decided at the beginning of the season that there was no way around getting the MLB extra innings package. 3609 Parkview might be the unofficial Phillies headquarters of south oakland. The two problems with extra innings is, it’s way more fun to watch a game at a bar with other Phils fans, and the away team announcers always SUCK!!!

    Thank God I’m only going to Drexel next fall and won’t have to deal with buying some BS package to watch my Phils every night. Where’s the best place for a college kid to go to watch a game, specifically in the Drexel/Penn area?

    nice I majored in history for my first pitt degree..

    Reallly? Nice!! People’s reactions to my major are funny. Their faces say it all, it’s like “Wait, why would you do that?” Cause I love History, that’s why!!

  • Posts: 0 Jordan

    If history has taught us anything, it’s that Eaton stinks and people with joke majors don’t get good jobs. I’m just messing around, but Eaton does stink. Clare, you won’t have to worry too much about missing the Phils assuming you go home for the summer. You’ll miss the first three weeks of the season, and the last month. Good news is all of the playoff of games are nationally televised so you won’t have to miss a single game of the “chase” to the pennant. Pitt’s an awesome school, you’ll love it here. I’m jealous of you actually, the year I graduate Pitt’s football team will be the best it’s been since I came here in 2004, and the basketball team is supposedly going to be #3 in the country, but they’ll still blow it once they get to the dance.

    DC also has the Ventnor Sports Cafe: http://www.ventnorsportscafe.com/Home.php

    2411 18th St NW

    I watched the Flyers there for game 5 on Saturday night with a group of Flyer fans, and the owner was born in Philly, apparently.

    For a bar near Penn/Drexel I would definitely choose Cavanaugh’s on 39th and Chestnut. I lived next door and always had fun there watching Phillies and Flyers games – good food and drink specials too.

    Visited the SPORTS CAFE @ Haymarket on Thursday nite. No baseball scheduled. Fans were interested in NBA & NHL play-off games. Local fans were following season ending games of Chelsea or Manchester.
    The bar & restaurant were crowded, plenty of sport conversation available. The food – a bacon/swiss cheese burger, chips & salad with a pint of “LONDON PRIDE” for

    Anyone know of some Phillies bars in Chicago. Me and a few of my boys are going out for the Cubs series in August. We are looking for a place to have a lot of beers, and not get our @sses kicked in our Phillies garb.
