I really dig the atmosphere of this Triumph location. It's classy, modern and industrial with plenty of metal and a super long bar as well as plenty of seating. My favorite part of this place is the bathroom setup, which basically is a bunch of unisex stand alone stalls with their own sink.

All of the triumph pubs brew quality, true to style beers. They might not have as much character as Nodding Head's brews, but they are well done and I have never had a bad beer here.

Service has always been good, even when it was busy. I usually end up having a meal here with my wife and even the servers know a good amount about the beers.

The selection is the only real flaw I find. Of their 6-8 beers, generally half of them are your usual gateway type beers, but they do tend have at least one thing that is interesting or unique.

The food here is not the best ever, but still quite good. I am not sure if I would go out of my way to eat here, but if you are in the area and hungry, you will not be disappointed.

All in all this is a nice spot in old city, and it's location across from Eulogy tavern makes it part of a nice two for one.

Above ratings not really true since I couldn't get in. It does not appear to be open. There was an official note on the door. Bartender at another place said he had heard from someone who worked there that they seemed to have been bought out by a new group? Anyhow, may want to call or check for details before planning on an event here.

The wife and I checked in at our hotel in Penn's Landing and walked to Old City just past I-95. Saturday night, all the preppy kids from the suburbs are out in full force in and around the bars in Chestnut street.

I like Triumph so we went in to check out this branch of the chain. Packed- we get carded. All white people drinking god-knows-what. Good service, though, despite the crowds. Efficient enough. We sat at a high-top table in the bar area.

9 taps, but three are gone (Honey, Amber, Bengal IPA). I had the Imperial Stout on nitro, good stuff, love the creaminess, but nothing to write grandma about. The wife went for El Dorado Pale Ale, alright as well.

Other stuff on tap: Scottish Ale, Belgian Strong, ESB on cask. This is a big place, a bit corporate looking and it suffers from the lame crowd. But at least it wasn't super loud or crazy despite being very busy. At $4-$6 per beer, prices are alright.

I won't revisit, I don't think. Too many good bars around (Eulogy across the street, Khyber Pass around the corner)
