Best of Philly

2009 Bartender

Jos Pistola’s

So many bartenders seem to find it difficult just to simultaneously smile and pour your drink. But this co-owner and weekend bartender (not to mention lead singer in ’80s glam-rock tribute band Welcome to My Face) gets you good and drunk while keeping you thoroughly entertained via bar tricks, dirty jokes, current-event commentary, astute sports analysis and, if you’re really lucky, the occasional song.
