PHILADEPHIA, PA - From Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, PhillyBite Magazine released their Staff-Picks of "The Best Dive Bars in PA," Philadelphia represented well, taking 3 out of 10 spots.
Dirty Franks - Philadelphia
Located near Washington Square, this ultimate Philadelphia dive bar opened two weeks after prohibition ended in 1933. Even today, the drinks are still cheap, the regulars are still there, and they still do not cook any food. At 347 S 13th St, in Philadelphia, PA 19107
Bob and Barbara's Lounge - Philadelphia
Located on South Street has been in operation since 1969. They are the originator of the famous "citywide special," a PBR cannon a shot of Jim Beam in 1994. They are also home to Philly's longest-running drag show. Located at 1509 South St in Philadelphia, PA 19146
Rays Happy Birthday Bar - Philadelphia
Located in South Philly was founded in 1938. This bar is dark, dank, and cheap, making it the perfect contrast from the bright lights, eager tourists, and expensive cheesesteaks down the street at Pat and Ginos. A block away from the original bar where the owner Ray greeted each customer with "Happy Birthday," and if it happened to be your birthday, you got a free drink. The same policy still stands today.
