This area of Philly's Queen Village, known as South Street Head House District, reminds me of New Orleans' Bourbon Street. Erotic shops and tattoo parlors are dispersed amongst a great variety of shopping, bars and restaurants. Street parking is metered, and can be challenging during peak hours. South Street, from 3rd Street to 8th Street, is an area of great diversity and all kinds of cuisine. At the eastern end of this dense craft beer area is the storied Jon's Bar & Grille, a brick building with green awnings. Its claim to fame is being the birthplace of Larry Fine, who played Larry of the Three Stooges. In front is an outdoor patio at street level, and there is a second floor outdoor patio too. Enter from 3rd Street into the bar area, which has a 13-chair 3-sided wooden bar and several overhead televisions throughout the place. There is a separate dining room to the right, and upstairs is a second dining room and exit to the upper patio. The decor naturally includes plenty of Three Stooges memorabilia. The food menu is large with good sandwiches and varied entrees. The bar offers 20 well chosen craft beers on tap with emphasis on bold seasonal selections. Wonderfully you can create your own 4 beer sampler flight. They also have about 70 bottles, a mix of common bar standards and exceptional global craft brews. In all, I really like this place. The Stooges history gives it a tourist feel, but don't be mistaken; this is a respectable craft beer bar and grill.
