P.S. In 2013, SeriousEats.com declared that Garage Philly is where you want to take a cheap date (in the best way possible)!
This newcomer, from the owners of Center City mainstays Vintage, Time, and Bar, is a well-stocked beer oasis at Ninth, Wharton and Passyunk, most recognized as the home of ludicrously lit-up South Philly cheesesteak heavies Pat’s and Geno’s. Solid business move opening up along a blazing neon intersection visible from space, right? You’ve actually got to browse a little to locate Garage, as it’s housed in the old Satellite Auto Body building and still bears that sign.
Inside, you’ll find a spacious digs accommodating pinball machines, Skeeball lanes, and pool tables ideal for breaking up the monotony of a date night. The bar itself specializes in canned crafts. They’re stocking more than 150 right now, with more on the way; popular options now include Founders All Day IPA, picks from Uinta and Ballast Point, and a plethora of canned pumpkin beers. No food beyond hot dogs as of right now, but there is a BYOC (bring your own cheesesteak) policy in place. Soon, they’ll have their stationary food cart, which will host a series of guest chefs, up and running.
