Bob and Barbara’s
Where Pabst Blue Ribbon embraces Drag
If you want the perfect dive bar plus a racially diverse, gay and straight crowd, welcome Bob and Barbara’s. The dark shadows and the flickering neon lights, along with make this the perfect watering hole.
But Bob and Barbara’s got more to offer. Depending on the night of the week, there’s live music from funky jazz or mellow groves. And if you’re lucky, you’ll catch famed Philly tunesters Nate Wiley and the Crowd Pleasers playing self-described “liquor-drinking music.” Every Thursday features a spectacular Drag Night.
Do not leave Bob and Barbara’s without trying the potent and perfect house special: a shot of Jim Beam chased by a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
