Spent an afternoon here sampling beers and catching up with friends. If you are looking for somewhere hip and classy...this isn't it. However, if you want a low-key type of place that makes you feel at home, I recommend this spot. We did not sample the food, so I can't speak to that, but there was a good selection of... More

Spent a Saturday afternoon in here prior to an event in Philly. Good selection of drinks including 40oz giving it a real dive feel. Happy Hour 5.30-7.30 when ALL drinks are 50% off. Got a few bits of bar food which were great, wings, chilli cheese dogs and tacos all around $3-5 Staff are very attentive, Debit Card mosaic on... More

Drinker's is a tough one. If you asked me to describe it in one word, I would quote Moe Szyslak in asking, "Is crap-hole one word?" It's a real, real dive. It sells 40s. Its "Taco Tuesday" is literally a joke, and one which often gets laughs. It's the worst. That said, it's a real, real dive. It sells 40s... More

Love it! Great staff and really a nice place to take a break. Just down from the Hotel Monaco. Very interesting inside lots of great trinkets to look at.

This Pub does not try to be much more than a local neighborhood tavern and due to modest expectations and modest appearance with corresponding modest prices (For Center City) it succeeds beyond many places that deliver a fancier product at much heftier prices. It offers typical pub food...wings...sandwiches...fries etc plus dollar hot dogs during every Phillies game. And again, for... More

The plan for me and five of my friends to meet at a super-fancy Philadelphia landmark restaurant for boys night out. When three of my friends bailed on me, the rest of us decided to check out Drinkers. We were very pleased. Like the other reviews suggest, the ambiance was that of a dive bar, but it certainly didn't have... More

Went for drinks - nothing else. Was a slow Sunday. Have heard it is crazy on Friday and Saturdays. Service was attentive all night. Price was right for the excessive amount of beer I consumed. Loved the dive atmosphere and attitude. Would have loved to have a bar like this in my college town.

Hate this place. If you want to pick up some Philly undergrads, this is the place to go. Cheap drinks, divey setting, top 40 jukebox music & frat boys. If you want to get some cheap drinks with your friends on a weeknight, it's not completely terrible early in the week for the post-work time frame from about 6-9pm. They... More

An awesome place for the 25 and under crowd to drink, catch a game and get some good bar grub. Their brunch is a great hangover cure, the bartenders are knowledgable and fast and the atmosphere is good for a young crowd. Don't forget your debit card they will plaster it to the wall. A nice, relatively cheap place to... More
