Bar service was pretty bad; I felt bad for the bartender, she was the only person upstairs with a hoard of people. Eventually relief came, but that was when we were leaving. Will try the food next time, too.

Nice place, somewhere sterile quasi-post-modern atmosphere, replacing the odd, often-changing, and often police-raided Boilermaker (see also: Farmer's Cabinet). Small space, but they use it well. Buddy Holly glasses and neck beards everywhere. I've never had a problem with the service, and the beer selection is always at least somewhat decent, and they get some good events as well. I think I've only ever gotten snack-type food here, but it was all pretty good. Not a place I normally hang out, and not the most distinctive bar in Philly, but worth checking out.

I was riding my bike around Center City and flew right by this place. It's only 11:45 in the morning, but it is not too early for a beer if the bar is open!

I was the only costumer inside, which always feels kind of weird. But the folks here are super nice. Sooner than you can say "Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier", we were all taking names and talking about Philly restaurants and bars and the South Philly 'hoods we live and play in. I love this town.

The 19 taps have a bit of everything, from RR Damnation to Cafe Racer 15, Founders Porter, Jolly Luciernaga, New Belgium, Left Hand, Sierra Ovila and a cask. There is also a small bottle menu with some rarities and big beers.

I did not have food this time but will definitely go back and try some. They have a 14-dollar lunch menu that looks great and offers a lot of veggie/vegan options.

Great first experience at Strangelove's, looking forward to many more!

Stopped by for lunch on a recent trip to Philly. The bar is large and has a modern motif. They had a half acre event over the weekend and had 5 of thee I brews on tap. I had a big hugs and my buddy got a sampler. We both had their lunch special, appetizer and a sandwich for 12 bucks. The food was great, the catfish po boy was outstanding. Our bartender was pleasant and knowledgable. IMO a great place.
