I Love My Neighborhood Hangout

On Thursday night I did something that I’ve done dozens of times since living in Fairmount–went for drinks and munchies with friends at Tavern on Green. I absolutely love the place. While walking to meet up with everyone I realized that my love for Tavern is a bit more than just “what a great place.” I had never thought about it in this vein before, but Tavern exemplifies exactly what I love about living in Philadelphia. In this City of Neighborhoods, Tavern is my beloved local hang out. It’s the easy outing when I don’t want to gear up for too much madness in Center City. And, as it serves Hoegaarden and Chimay, there is no need for me to venture any further.

If you live in the Art Museum area, I’m sure that you’ve heard of (and hopefully been to) Tavern. I’d be interested to hear from others: What are some of your favorite neighborhood hangouts around the city?

    As a Green St. resident, the Tavern is definitely one of my faves. If you go there for dinner, the pasta with shrimp & clams is highly reccommended.

    Just a block away is the Green Room, with a very laid-back atmosphere. Although it could be considered a little “divy”, you can usually find an available pool table there.

    If you’re looking for a little more ambience and a solid beer selection, Aspen is just a few blocks north. A very charming neighborhood pub, and you can’t go wrong with their menu.
