2022 Place to Meet Your Future Ex-Boyfriend

El Bar

Are you sick of dating apps? Do you long to meet a man under the train tracks whom you can sporadically smooch for two months before eventually deleting his phone number? Look no further than El Bar in Fishtown, a place where the pool table is always occupied, two Citywides cost $10, and the pinball machine is Shrek-themed. El Bar simultaneously attracts a crowd of people who have probably been divorced twice and swear the place is “the last real bar in the neighborhood, sweetie” and 20-somethings who watch Curb Your Enthusiasm and seem fine. Enjoy.
