Best Quizzo Spots in Manayunk

Philadelphia is a city of firsts—first zoo, first stock exchange, first penitentiary—and yes, the first place to coin the term “Quizzo.”

The beloved trivia game, usually played at bars and restaurants, was begun right here in the City of Brotherly Love, and you can find a rousing game nearly any night of the week in any neighborhood, including right near your The Isle apartment! A number of Manayunk venues host weekly trivia events, which often draw big crowds who use the occasion as a way to unwind after work and socialize with friends on a set schedule. Most Quizzo locations offer food and drink deals during the games, which occasionally feature themed questions around pop culture, history or other topics.

So put on your thinking caps, grab your crew and head to these local spots to put your trivia knowledge to the test and compete for great prizes:

Cactus: This Tex-Mex bar and grill, just one block from your The Isle apartment, features Quizzo Thursday nights. Every seven weeks, the top-three winners from the previous weeks’ games will go head to head in Battle of the Champions to compete for $500 in prizes.
