Why locals love it

The bathrooms are terrible, a lager is $5, but what really brings those in the know here is the people watching – hipsters, blue collar neighborhood locals, university students, artists, and adventurous out of towers are known to crowd into the row home living room-sized venue every weekend, hoping the cops won't come to shut the place down.

Why you should visit it

Technically a strip club, you'll find the bar has more of a 'friend of a friend's house party crashed by strippers' vibe than anything else. Bask in the soft glow from one of the 'A Christmas Story' leg lamps that tackily adorn every table, or hang out with the owner's dog, Puff, the chillest Bichon Frise this side of West Passyunk.

Special tip

Don't sit on the couch in the back. You'll see why.
