For a pub just a block and a half from City Hall, McGillin's is oddly hard to find. Philadelphia’s oldest continuously operating tavern, where the beer has flowed since 1860, is on a block-long alley running from 13th Street to Juniper Street between Chestnut and Sansom Streets. It's not fancy—nor, considering its age, historically twee in any way. It's a bar: crowded, noisy, with $6.50 pitchers of PBR, 35-cent wings on Tuesdays, and karaoke at 9pm Wednesdays and Sundays. Expect a younger crowd later in the evening.
