Lots going on at Victoria Freehouse this summer. First, Front Street Dive (the 2nd floor of Victoria Freehouse) is now open. Head up there on Thursdays for karaoke with Dr. Thunder or on Fridays and Saturdays for various DJs. The bar will be open from 9pm-2am on these days and available for private parties Monday through Wednesday.
Next, happy hour has begun at The Victoria. Mon-Fri from 4-7pm enjoy $5 Imperial (20-ounce) pints and half-priced pub snacks.
And now for their summer events. We're talking 4th of July, Christmas in July, Harry Potter and more.

Whatever plans you had, cancel them. Because if you like alcohol and hate spending money, we have the perfect event for you.
Tonight, from 5pm-7pm on the lower level of the Shops At Comcast (1701 JFK Blvd), there’s going to be a Mixology Mixer–which basically means a competition-slash-cocktail-demonstration which will have some of the best bartenders in the city putting together spring cocktails which you, as a value-conscious cocktail enthusiast, will then judge. You get to vote for your favorite (via social media so, you know, it’s all modern-y), and the best bartender wins… I dunno. Bragging rights or whatever.
The important takeaway here is that there are going to be cocktails, that the event is open to the public, and that it’s free.
Wait, did you say free cocktails?

City Tap House is wrapping everything in Bespoke bacon for happy hour. Sometimes the best ideas are the easiest. And oh yes, there will be beer from Yards, including their collaborative Just Off Walnut Belgian Brown Ale.
Also in West Philadelphia, Fiume is tapping Freigeist Ottekolong, a Kölsch too Kölsch for Köln.
Across town, Don Russell (Joe Sixpack) is going to be at Victoria's Freehouse where he'll be pouring ELGOOD’S Coolship #1.
