My favorite bar in Philadelphia. I really like the Khyber, but sometimes feel out of place there (I don't have any tattoos)! And Standard Tap is easier to get to and you can find FREE parking without trouble. But I guess what really makes it stand out is that they ONLY pour local beers. I really appreciate that commitment, and am glad to be able to find beers from far reaching breweries and brewpubs that I can't get out to on a regular basis. There are 8 to 9 beers on tap including 2 handpumps and the Yeungling Lord Chesterfield in "the fridge". The atmosphere and food are great as well. The rooms are painted with deep colors of burgundy, pine and yellow. There's a "retro" tile floor downstairs and wood upstairs. There's alot of dark wood and there's an actual gas lamp in the main dining room! There are tin ceilings in areas, a small fireplace upstairs, and unique art on almost all of the walls. The food and beer menus are written on chalk boards which are always changing - no need for menus. The food is excellent and I recommend heading in for brunch on Sunday. The brunch items should give you an idea of what the other food is like. Duck Salad $9, Chorizo Baked Eggs $10.50, Salmon Club $9, Steak & Eggs $14, BLT $6 and Peach French Toast $8.50. I don't really go in for the smelts during dinner, but everything else is exceptional. I always consider it as a bit of a learning experience! Not to be missed!

As stated this is one of the best bars in Phila. and the good part is you can actually park close with no problem. There is a rustic feel to the place and it is quite dark inside. The jukebox will play tunes and the food is good. Get the duck salad. It is reasonable on the wallet. The beer selection is great and you will always have a fresh Victory product on tap along with several other high quality draft selections. Overall a very good bar for you to go to before a Flyers/Sixers/Eagles/Phillies game...

This is one of the best bars in Philadelphia. Located in the up and coming Northern Liberties area, this place has pretty much everything you ask for when looking for a great pub. The atmosphere is great, the 2 story interior is covered in dark wood and brass fixtures and both the beer and food menus are written on chalkboards placed throughout the restaurant. As the previous reviewer pointed out, they don't serve bottles, only local drafts (hard stuff and wine as well) that are always fresh. The menu is small, but very good. I usually get the chicken pot pie but there are also a few sandwich and exotic entrees (buffalo, chilean sea bass) available. Also, great jukebox and goodlooking crowd. Highly recommended.
Update: Standard Tap is dog friendly, if your dog is friendly that is. As long as they're quite and stay in the front bar area, dogs are welcome.
