Nickel’s Tavern is the diviest South Philly dive bar there is, and it’s the perfect alternative to heading to XFinity live after a game on Broad Street. They do cheap bears from $3 and, while you’re not coming here to eat, you can get a $5 appetizer sampler with things like mozzarella sticks and jalapeno poppers that will work just fine after you’ve had a few beers.
