If you live around East Passyunk, you’ve probably been here for a beer or five with your friends to end a night of bar hopping, but you may have never seen it before 10pm. Which is a shame, because they have pretty decent bar food, and during Happy Hour, all of their appetizers, like mac & cheese and wild boar tacos, are half off. Plus, they open at 11am every day, and during the summer they open up all of their windows, so you can sit at the bar stools that line up against them and pretend you’re outside without actually being outside.
