Sassafras is the best fucking bar in Philadelphia. Bitches, I need your help!

I've spent years boozing in this city, I have special places in my heart for many bars Philadelphia has to offer, but nothing holds my heart quite like Sassafras.

If you've met me in person I've taken you there at some point, where a bartender made the best drinks you've ever had and did so with a charming smile and a friendly nod. Neill, bartender and owner, has probably brightened your day with that fantastic accent and a sassy story. Angie might have cheered you up after your house was robbed and made you several Summer Manhattans to fix your soul. Maybe Bridgett offered advice on how you might get started on finding charter schools for your sister's children, either way, once you go to Sassafras a time or so, they will know your name and likely even know your drink of choice.

He's Irish, he's handsome and he makes a mean drink.
I don't give two fucks about the other places on this 'Best of Philly' list, because they are bullshit. Sure you can get a refreshing drink but they simply are not the best. I have yet to find another bar that operates at the standard that Sassafras does, and I strongly doubt I will. While I might visit other bars, I'm always thinking about Sass when I'm there.

I don't want to spend time trashing the other bars, as I said several on the list are fairly good, but they aren't the best. They aren't even close to the best. Then again this whole blog was born because Philly Mag doesn't fucking understand what a good bar is.

If you've been to Sassafras you already know that it's home to boozers, you already love it, so why not take a moment to write them in and let folks know they've been drinking at all of the wrong places for all this time.

Stay drunk, bitches!
