Best Places to Watch the Phillies

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 1500 Locust 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 1500 Locust 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:


Founding Fathers: Four blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment, Founding Fathers’ 13 TVs will give you a great view of the game, no matter where you sit. The restaurant and bar is popular with sports lovers, in part because of its friendly, neighborhood vibe that make watching a Philly sports game a festive occasion. The sports theme continues on the food menu, with “Concessions,” “Stadium Flatbreads” and lots of other sports-friendly bites—not to mention, 20 beers on tap!


Field House: If you’re bringing a crew with you to watch the game, Field House is your spot. The 12,000 square-foot space, a half-mile from your 1500 Locust apartment, is one of Philly’s largest sports bars. It has more than 35 TVs and a full surround-sound system, making Phillies fans feel like they’re sitting right at the stadium. With more than 40 local beers and a full pub menu, Field House will have you hoping for extra innings.


Clubhouse: This will be the first Phillies season for the new sports-focused venue, three blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment. More than 30 high-def screens ring the bar so you can catch the game from anywhere, and Clubhouse also features its own ways to play: Pool tables, two escape rooms, bar games and more make any trip here entertaining, even without a Phillies game!
