Fishtown offers a rustic and unpretentious experience, where the industrial decor is the standard and the beer flow unending. Read ahead for the best bars in Philadelphia’s Fishtown.
Once again, Stephen Starr slays the restaurant game, as his Frankford Hall may be one of the best spots in all of Philadelphia. The German beer garden offers up one-liter pints of draft beer in a picnic table covered courtyard. The venue is always filled with a diverse crowd playing foosball, ping pong, or life-sized Jenga in the outer courtyard. Fire pits and heated lamps are set out in colder weather. A small bar food menu accompanies the drinks and includes soft pretzels and sausages, true to Frankford Hall’s German theme. If looking for a casual and fun night out in a large open space filled with amusing games, go entertain your inner child while sipping a pint.

Lloyd Whiskey Bar
Lloyd Whiskey Bar is one of Fishtown’s newer additions. Started by Scott Coudriet along with his father and wife, the bar is a low-ceiling classy space with tasty bar bites. As stated in its name, the bar is gaining momentum due to the phenomenal whiskey selection. It has a revolving selection of more than 80 types of whiskey. With references to The Shining (Lloyd is the imaginary bartender’s name) that persist throughout the cocktail menu, this bar is a trendy hot spot for those more particular about their drinking game.

Kraftwork was opened in 2010 by Adam Ritter and has quickly won over the Philadelphia neighborhood. With a dedication to providing the best selection of beer from around the globe and a tasty selection of daily bites, Kraftwork offers the Fishtown experience. The Kraftwork draft menu is well-known and extensive. Happy hour is offered Sunday to Thursday from 10pm to 12am. The atmosphere is cozy. Like many Fishtown bars, it is industrial, and the exposed brick walls give a rustic feeling to the room. Any beer-loving foodie will certainly feel a strong attraction to this spot.
