901 N. 2nd St., Northern Liberties
Considered to be sort of ahead-of-its-time, this gastropub opened New Years’ Eve of 1999 and has been a local favorite ever since. (It's not exactly a secret, though, so there are plenty of out-of-towners at any given time.) Standard is known for a constantly updated and varied beer selection that only includes locally produced draft beers; but the vibe is unpretentious, and the split-level building is comfortably both large and cozy. As a bonus, the pub’s food is pretty great, if you’re in the mood for indulgent classics like chicken pie and pulled pork sandwiches—and the kitchen is open until 1 a.m.
