Best Places to Watch the Phillies

bar crowd watching sports

It may not be summer yet, but the boys of summer are back!

The Phillies’ season is in full swing and, with the city still riding high off the Eagles’ Super Bowl win, there are big expectations for the Phillies. If you want to check out a game in person, you can always hop the Broad Street Subway, just one block from your Edgewater apartment, down to the stadium. Or, if you’d rather save the trip—and the cash on the expensive hot dogs!—stick around the neighborhood.

There are lots of sports bars near your Edgewater apartment that offer great views of the game, without the hassle of heading to South Philly. And on hot summer days, watching the hometown team with a beer in your hand and the air conditioner on full blast is definitely a score!

Here are the best sports bars in Philly:


Liberty Bar & Grill: The neighborhood tavern four blocks from your Edgewater apartment is a down-to-earth favorite for Phillies games. The laidback, corner-bar feel makes for an easygoing experience with a group of friends or even if you’re catching the game solo. During the game, enjoy pub grub and great drink specials, including $3 domestic drafts from 5-7 p.m. on weekdays.


Rogues Gallery: If you’re really looking to get away from the noise of most Center City bars and watch a game in peace, Rogues is your spot. The windowless, multi-floor spot, a half-mile from your Edgewater apartment, describes itself as a “hideout,” giving patrons the space to dine or drink without the hassle of some other sports bars. Happy-hour specials include $3 Yuenglings and PBR Pounders from 5-7 p.m. Stick around after the game, as Rogues often features live performances.

Oscar’s Tavern: One mile from your Edgewater apartment, Oscar’s is the quintessential, no-frills Philly sports bar. With a collection of booths, barstools and tables, Oscar’s is a great spot for a group of Phillies fans of any size, who will love the cheap drinks. The tavern attracts Philly sports fans of all stripes, so you’re always sure to meet some new characters.
