  • Fiume

    Hidden tipple heaven

    There’s no sign, no phone number and no website for this beloved dive bar, and that’s exactly how patrons and employees like it. The cash-only Fiume has a tremendous selection of craft beer, but it’s underappreciated as a place for a good stiff cocktail. Regulars know to climb the stairs above Abyssinia to this hidden spot to partake in the “citywide special” (a cheap Pabst Blue Ribbon and whiskey combo) and listen to the live bands as they shake the miniscule space.

  • Gojjo

    Half Ethiopian, half dive, all awesome

    One of the friendliest bars in West Philly, Gojjo is Ethiopian-owned, offering a small but solid selection of that native cooking (you gotta try the beef tibs).

These worlds collide in the form of amazing beer-muncie snacks like the “Ethiopian cheesesteak.” Even more surprising: live country and bluegrass acts.
