While there are only six Center City Philadelphia bars tagged in the map shown above (two of which I have never been to!), that only scratches the surface with regards to the number of eating and drinking establishments in the City of Brotherly Love. It’s no secret that the “It’s just the booze dancing…” crew loves a good old fashioned bar tour (or in the local parlance, a pub crawl), especially when it happens in one of the greatest beer drinking cities in America, but with so many places to go, you best have a plan!
Thanks to David Wondrich and the good people at Esquire Magazine, planning a bar tour has never been easier. The following 12 step infographic titled “How To Do A Bar Tour” was included in the “Man At His Best” section of the March 2013 issue:
Over the past few years, we have done several of these bar tours (Philly Beer Week 2010 and Philly Beer Week 2011 are prime examples), and I am happy to report that Esquire Magazine’s tips are absolutely correct. Pick a theme and a few destinations. Keep the group small. Eat. Keep moving. Have an exit strategy. And most important of all, get home safely! Follow these simple steps and you too will have a fun filled night (or afternoon and early evening in our case) on the town.
If you have any bar tour/pub crawl tips, feel free to share them with us in the comments below. Cheers!
One more thing…
If you happen to live in Philadelphia, or plan to visit our fair city anytime soon, pay a visit to the In Search Of Beer blog for several Philly Craft Beer itineraries. Our buddy Ryan has done all the hard work so that you don’t have to!
