National Mechanics is an impressive and memorable two story building with a stone facade like the Greek Parthenon. This area of Old City Philly has many interesting places to drink and dine within easy walking distance. Metered parking can be challenging, and there are several pay decks in the area. Ascend stone stairs between two columns to enter. On the right is their long wooden bar with space for 10 chairs, and on the left are plenty of dining tables and booths. Wooden floors, architectural tiled ceiling, dark reddish brown walls, deep brown woodwork and eclectic decor give a warm organic atmosphere. They cater to a great variety of people and the food is good. They are open from brunch through late night, and feature expanded pub fare with good salads, sandwiches, and a few well crafted entrees. This place has the feel of a relaxed cafe during the day, and at night has a crowded club atmosphere with loud pop music. Unfortunately, the service seems rushed and somewhat inattentive. The bar has about 15 beers on tap which are common regional and national craft brews plus a few imported standards. They also have about 30 bottled beers which include common American standards and a decent variety of craft styles. For this area of Philly, the craft beer menu is a bit disappointing. If you're hunting great craft beer there are better places very nearby. If you're looking for a popular bar with good food and lively ambience, this is a decent place.
