National Mechanics

Media Title

National Mechanics' bar in Philadelphia is breathing new life into an old edifice. When you pull open the tall, ancient doors, curtained in a blood red fabric, you open the passage way to a strange and mixed feeling of warmth and welcome.  The bar and restaurant consists of ancient brick walls and warm, florid lighting . In any case, you can tell the work that went into this beautiful and historic building was wrought by the hands of people who love what they do, and care about those who enter.  The bar has 32 varieties from across the globe, consisting of drafts and bottles. From local legends like Yards and Victory to exotic imports like Hitachino and Newcastle Brown, the beer selection will satiate any palate. Try National Mechanics' for the warm and inviting atmosphere, unique music and opportunity to mingle with old friends, new friends, or slightly slurring strangers. The space is alive, bursting with vibrancy and dynamism from the friendly staff and great food to the eccentric and thought provoking décor. The crowd is a combination from all walks of life, much like Philadelphia, with artists and bikers next to business professionals and students.

An integral (if recent) addition to the way-too-cool-to-be-in-Old-City tavern triumvirate (see also: Sugar Mom's, No. 4, and Charlie's, No. 37), National Mechanics opened its red-velvet-draped doors just about a year ago. With an expansive selection of pub fare, 32 varieties of beer and a warm, welcoming vibe, the most recent incarnation of the gothic Third Street staple is the best thing to happen to the 171-year-old former bank building since ... well, since anyone around here can remember.
