Mad River, 4100 Main St

Mad River is pretty much the go-to bar for any big game that’s happening. Crowded with college kids, this bar has a bit of a frat house atmosphere.

The largest bar on Main Street, Manayunk Brewery attracts a younger crowd thirsty for cheap drinks.

Fox And The Hound, 1501 Spruce St

Located on Spruce Street, the Fox and the Hound draws a slightly older sports bar crowd. But it’s still a great time — $2 drafts during Happy Hour are awesome, and they feature “Taco Rita” Thursdays — $5 Margaritas and $2 Tacos all day. Can’t go wrong with that!

Cavanough’s is another cool sports bar in the area. Located on 2nd Street, the place is really nice — never too crowded and has a ton of TVs to watch whatever game is on that day. Cavanough’s is a favorite neighborhood bar for many due to its wide variety of beer on tap and top notch service. Also: Burgers are ½ price on Wednesdays!
