Located in the general Museum area, Bishop's Collar is in a good place for craft-beer-bar-hopping outside of Center City, with Brigid's and Belgian Cafe not too far away. But it can stand alone for a good night out as well. The place is not that big, with a bar that holds maybe 10-12 people, and some standing and sitting room, which can get cramped during busy hours. Pretty basic layout, nothing extravagant going on here.

Beer selection is generally pretty good, with a decent line up of local and micro standards. They tend to get some good events that generally fly under the radar. I popped later in the day after a Pliny the Younger event to find Hopslam and Sculpin still flowing easily.

Service is generally fine, though I tend to notice that some of the bartenders may spend a little too much time chatting with their buddies and regulars rather than tending the whole bar. It's to be expected in a place like this.

Food is basic pub grub, but everything I've had has been decent. Prices are about the average overall.

I wouldn't exactly call this a must-visit bar, but if you find yourself in the area looking for something to do, Bishop's Collar is a solid option.
