McGillin’s Olde Ale House threw open its doors the year Lincoln was elected president. That’s shortly after the Liberty Bell cracked and long before ground was broken for Philadelphia City Hall. The beer taps have been flowing since 1860 — making it the oldest continuously operating tavern in Philadelphia and one of the oldest taverns in the country.

Upcoming
UPDATE
Cheers!

Everyone is welcome in McGillin’s flower-filled outside dining area — vaccinated and unvaccinated and even Cowboys fans. In response to the latest mandates put in place by the City of Philadelphia, McGillin’s will ask for proof of vaccine for indoor dining. We believe this is the safest path forward for all guests and staff and their families.

Our policy will change as policies set by the city of Philadelphia are updated. Stay safe. Stay tuned.

Philly’s oldest bar has survived Prohibition and the pandemic of 1918 and we plan to survive this pandemic too. We’ll supply the beer and in return we ask you for understanding, help and kindness as we get through this together. Let’s all drink to that!

If you’ve misplaced your card, want to schedule a vaccine or have questions about the vaccine, contact the city’s Covid call center at 215/685-5488 or covid@phila.gov or visit phila.gov

No reservations. First come/first served.

The historic bar has a full bar with dozens of beers including its three house beers, wine and select seasonal cocktails. The Terrace Menu features McGillin’s most popular appetizers and sandwiches like wings, nachos, the BIG burger, cheesesteak, grilled chicken breast, grilled Reuben and other crowd pleasers, (not the full 10-page menu.)
