For the fifth year in a row we’ve polled a diverse panel of Philadelphia’s drinking scene in order to determine the best bars in Philadelphia. The polled include our favorite writers, bloggers, twitterers and even just drinkers for the 2013 Foobooz 50 Best Bars list.
Seven new bars made the list this year.
23 bars have made the list in each of the five years it has been published.
0 repeats at number one. Each year a different bar has held down the top spot.
For the first time ever a bar from New Jersey made the list.
Loco Pez was the biggest mover on the list, jumping 32 spots.
