Best of Philly

2010 Bartender

John Doyle

Imagine a sweet old grandpa. Now imagine that sweet old grandpa pouring you a pint of Stoudt’s while telling a dirty joke from behind a 150-year-old bar. Head over to McGillin’s on a Friday night and you’ll find just such a gent: the delightful John Doyle, who’s been behind the stick at Philly’s oldest bar for 35 years. If you’d like to buy him a congratulatory drink, he’ll take an Irish Mist on the rocks.
