Besides being one of the oldest bars in Philly, McGillin’s is also the entire city’s favorite place to day drink and watch sports. The beer hall has rows of long picnic tables, projector screens playing whatever game is currently on TV, and no matter what time of year it is, you’ll see big groups cheers-ing each other with pints of whatever’s on draft. They also have two fireplaces, so it’s especially relevant in the winter, when all of the outdoor beer gardens are closed and day drinking options have dwindled.
