Check Out Some of Our Favorite Places in Brewerytown!

Happy Thursday, Philadelphia! It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood! This week, we would like to give you an inside look into Brewerytown!

Brewerytown is the gateway to West Girard Avenue’s business community and the home of Fairmount Park’s Lemon Hill. Located in the North Philadelphia district of the city, this “unofficial” region got its name because of the numerous breweries that were located along the Schuylkill during the late 19th century and early 20th century. It is now primarily a residential neighborhood, with an active commercial sector along Girard Avenue. Despite struggling with poverty in recent decades, Brewerytown has seen a recent influx of young professionals, and it is considered a neighborhood on the rise.

Check out some of our favorite local restaurants and bars! If you’re in the neighborhood, these are definitely places you should stop into.

Angelino’s Restaurant Pizzeria

849-51 N 25th St
Philadelphia, PA 19130

This BYOB Italian restaurant is very laid back with a local vibe. The pizzas and wraps are delicious and you won’t leave with an empty wallet. They frequently feature local jazz performances at this intimate joint!

North Star Bar

2639 Poplar St
Philadelphia, PA 19130

From the outside, this bar looks like a homey corner dive, but inside it’s filled with live music, delicious microbrews, and a unique bar menu! Not to mention, they offer happy hour 7 days a week! If you fail to discover your new favorite band in this place, you’re certain to discover your new favorite beer.

ERA

This local bar is a frequent hang out for many of the Philly Sports Club’s kickball leagues. They offer great drink specials (probably the cheapest in the area), a relaxed atmosphere, pool table tournaments, and delicious traditional Ethiopian cuisine.
