Bars have become the meeting places of choice now that libraries, public parks, and desolate midnight crossroads are all under Prohibition. Enjoy a legal and delicious dalliance with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of pub fare and drinks at Liberties Restaurant & Bar.
Liberties Restaurant & Bar is a classic American saloon with a well-hopped variety of draft beers and a menu adorned with high-quality pub grub. Stop in for a seafaring plate of buffalo shrimp ($12) or lavish over locally inspired pizzas such as the Northern Liberties, a white pie donned with fresh spinach and tomato ($15).
Manhandle one of Liberties Restaurant & Bar’s meaty entrees, such as the rigatoni vodka with a choice of chicken or shrimp ($12-$18) or the delectable pretzel chicken ($16), or bicker over batting lineups while noshing on a Phat burger with bacon, cheddar, beer-battered onion rings, and buffalo ranch ($11). Dedicated patrons often spend afternoons pondering how many licks it takes to get the center of the Liberties cheesesteak lollipops ($9) while giving the bar's mini Statue of Liberty a pat on the diadem for good luck on upcoming Declaration-revising sessions.
Nestled within one of Philadelphia's oldest neighborhoods, the 100-year-old establishment features a rich cherry bar, original pressed-tin ceilings, rich walnut wainscoting, and prerevolutionary video poker.
Liberties Restaurant & Bar
Still boasting many of its original fixtures from the mid-1800s, Liberties Restaurant & Bar welcomes guests to belly up to a Victorian-style bar in the rustic dining room, flanked by rich copper and walnut walls. The bar's taps pour forth a plentitude of draft-beer selections, while chefs take to the more modern tact of fusing Cuban and Southwestern flavors into burgers, pizzas, and other American favorites. Flat-screen TVs cleverly nestled into the saloon-style décor constantly update patrons on the latest sports action or the Franklin Pierce versus Winfield Scott election results. For large-group dining, the staff caters offsite events and gatherings in the upstairs party room, which can seat up to 75 guests.
