Cleveland Street, Fitzrovia

Philly Dive Bar and Restaurant

Fitzrovia, The OG Passyunk Avenue in London

a cultural shot of Philly

Go for its Jay Rayner-approved Philly cheesesteak; stay for your unequivocal home run into a Philadelphia backstreet dive bar. Tucked away on Fitzrovia’s otherwise chilled out Cleveland Street, Passyunk Avenue is a disco ball of neon Budweiser signs, televisions beaming out baseball, sports paraphernalia hung on every spare inch of wall and iconic US tunes ringing from the speakers. Though unmistakably American, this is a place that simultaneously swats away notions of the all-American experience. The bar seeks to share the cultural inheritance of waves of Italian immigrants to Philadelphia and pays tribute to a city shaped by years of immigration through its menu of Philly-Italian die-hard favourites.

And what do I order?

There always seem to be a group sinking Buds over buffalo chicken wings on the seats out front, so it’d make sense to start there. Beyond the Budweiser, the bar serves up Victory Brewing Company Prima Pils straight from Philadelphia, plus USA-brewed Blue Point Toasted Lager. Don’t miss the combo ubiquitous in its home city: the Citywide Special, a shot of whiskey and a beer — served up here as a shot of Jim Beam and a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Amazing philly cheesesteak and wings. Can't imagine I missed it for 3 yrs. Better for small groups - will prefer over brew dog.

They weren’t kidding when they said this place was a dive bar. I usually go to the Cleveland street branch but came here for the batting cage which was a lot of fun for the whole family. Food is great and consistent throughout branches. Make sure you try the mozzarella sticks and chicken strips, the ranch is also great.

Amazing location; it’s underground and at the banksy graffiti Tunnel! Delicious tipical US food. The staff is very kind and the bathroom is full of gravities which gives the ambiance a special highlight. It’s a sports bar and you can see and play sports. Loved the place. The joggers are awesome.
