Build all the new bars you want. The oldest established drinking establishment in Philadelphia — McGillin’s Olde Ale House, erected in 1860 — is still the king. The Irish tavern originally opened as the Bell in Hand on the intimate, cobblestone Drury St, and still holds all of the same spirits, literally and figuratively, as it did before the turn of the Civil War!
