Best Local Spot in Manayunk to Watch the Super Bowl

Let’s face it: This year’s Super Bowl won’t be nearly as exciting as last year’s! Even though our Eagles won’t be in the big game, that doesn’t mean you can’t still get into the Super Bowl spirit, chowing down on wings, lifting a glass and voting for your favorite commercials (while rooting for a return trip for the birds to next year’s Bowl!).

You can certainly host a Super Bowl party at your The Isle apartment, but if you want to let someone else do the cooking (and cleaning up!), you’re in luck, as there are tons of worthy local spots to enjoy the game. One of the standout sports bars in our neck of the woods is Scanlon’s Saloon, a half-mile from your The Isle apartment.

Everything about Scanlon’s is laidback—from its prices to its people!  The bar and restaurant serves up 10 draft beers as well as more than 40 craft bottles, many of which are brewed locally. So if you’re a beer lover, Scanlon’s is the perfect spot for you to sample a variety of brews. On the food side, Scanlon’s offers traditional pub grub: tacos and truffle fries to burgers and barbeque. Wings come with one of four sauces, and diners can also opt for some out-of-the-box solutions like handmade pierogis or homemade mozzarella wedges.

The feel at Scanlon’s matches its easygoing menus. Diners and drinkers can congregate at the bar or go head to head with friends (old and new!) at a pool table, darts and other bar games—perfect for that Super Bowl halftime stretch. And since Scanlon’s is less than a 15-minute walk from your The Isle apartment, it’s in a great location—just far enough to avoid the crowds and congestion that will abound on Main Street on Super Bowl Sunday but also close enough to enjoy a brisk stroll and walk off all those wings!
