Grace Tavern

Amazing burgers and great local beers in a Graduate Hospital standby

Beer lovers rave about Grace Tavern, founded by the minds behind Philly beer havens Monk’s Cafe and Nodding Head Brewery & Restaurant, but patrons who don’t sample the venue’s varied food selection — the fresh oyster po-boy, the spinach and feta sausage sandwich and the blackened green beans — are missing out.

Resurrection Ale House

One of several excellent craft beer bars in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood

People come to this traditional American craft beer bar and restaurant for its nationally known twice-fried chicken, but they stay for the 12 draft beers on tap and a menu that focuses on fresh, seasonal ingredients.

The Sidecar Bar & Grille

A neighborhood anchor at 22nd and Christian with awesome beer and delicious food

This two-floor gastropub — proud of its expansive and constantly evolving beer list — reinvents the happy hour, pouring specials from 12:00 midnight to 2:00 a.m. every weeknight. On the weekends, brunch means burritos and Bloody Marys.

A new addition to South Street West serving a wide selection of craft beer

A welcoming neighborhood bar, the UK-ish Cambridge is certainly a beer drinker’s haven, but don’t forget to ask about their classic cocktail list, either.
