Where to Watch the Phillies When Baseball Returns

We may be in a bit of a delay right now, but baseball season will eventually be back before we know it! If you’ve gotten used to hunkering down at home, a trip to Citizens Bank Park to cheer on the Phillies may seem like too big of a chore—with crowds, high prices and equally high temps. If you want to take in a game without all that fanfare, stick a bit closer to home with a trip to one of the many sports bars near your Royal Athena apartment.

Jack McShea’s Pub is a mainstay in nearby Adrmore. Located just 10 minutes from your Royal Athena apartment, Jack McShea’s is a laidback neighborhood favorite, especially among sports fans. Plenty of flat-screen TVs ring the bar, so no matter where you sit, you have a great view of the game. And with a good mixture of tables, booths and bar seating, no matter how big your game day party is, you’ll feel right at home at Jack McShea’s. And at the seventh inning stretch, try your own hand at one of several games, including pool and darts.

No Phillies outing is complete without some good brews and good food, and Jack McShea’s delivers on both accounts. On the food side, you can certainly find your standard pub grub—wings, burgers and nachos—but the venue kicks things up a bit with some new twists on old favorites, like jumbo lump crab quesadillas, mac and cheese fries and pierogies. As an Irish pub, it also offers plenty of Irish favorites, such as fish and chips, corned beef and even an Irish BLT.

Irish favorites can also be found on the drink menu, which features a wide range of whiskeys and, of course, Guinness on tap, along with a dozen other draught options, including many that are locally brewed.

So, when the Phils return, put on your jersey and play hooky at Jack McShea’s for a game to remember!
