Where to Watch the Phillies This Spring

Baseball season is back! While a trip to Citizens Bank Park to cheer on the Phillies is a great way to spend an afternoon with friends or family, making the trek to South Philly can come with its challenges—with crowds, high prices and equally high temps. If you want to take in a game without all that fanfare, stick a bit closer to home with a trip to one of the many sports bars near your The Isle apartment.

One of Manayunk’s most popular spots for sports is Bayou Bar & Grill. The Main Street mainstay for more than 25 years may be New Orleans-themed, but when it comes to baseball, it’s all about the Phillies! Loads of flat-screen TVs are situated throughout Bayou, and they’re always tuned to the Phils on game day.

Affordable pub grub attracts many baseball lovers. The food menu features burgers, sandwiches, pizza and plenty of shareable options perfect for watching the game with a crew, such as nachos, a wide range of fries and, of course, wings. Bayou features eight beers on tap, including several locally brewed, as well as a healthy selection of spirits and wines. And, best yet, it offers specials every day of the week—so no matter when the game is on, you’ll be able to take advantage of discounted drinks and dishes.

For a midday game, you can take advantage of the lunch specials, offered from noon-3 p.m. throughout the week and featuring burgers, wraps, salads, cheesesteaks and wings for just $5 each. On Monday and Tuesday nights, grab $.25 wings and $.50 boneless hardshell crabs, while you can chow down on $.50 boneless buffalo bites on Thursday nights. If it’s a Friday night game, Bayou’s happy hour, from 7-9 p.m. offers a range of drinks for just $2, while Saturdays and Sundays feature $3 Miller Lite pounders all day and Sundays

So put on your Phillies jersey and play hooky at Bayou Bar & Grill, just two blocks from your The Isle apartment, for a game to remember!
