Sold! South Philly Home With Elvis-Themed Basement Bar

If Philadelphia is the capital city of basement bars, South Philadelphia is its City Hall. Need proof? Look no further than this house near 13th and Ritner. With three bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths, the 1,200-square-foot, awning-bedecked classic is most distinguished not by its exterior or its bones but by the downstairs decor, which is stupendous.

It should be noted, however, that the focus on Elvis isn’t all-consuming: The Eagles make an appearance too. The house sold a few days ago for $180,000, which is $10,000 less than its original asking price. It went on the market in March, and according to public record, last sold for $100,000 in 2002.
