We hit this place every time we come to Philly. The place is packed at 10am with people watching soccer. It is a blast and the bartenders are very attentive and friendly. We have never eaten here, however.

Best atmosphere -- standing room only for Barca v Real Madrid. And I mean for every 10 people sitting, there were 15 standing !! But great vibe for any soccer game - plus decent prices on beer.
