This piece of history in Manayunk is also the sister bar & restaurant to Liberties in the city, but with a charm all its own. It was originally part of the late 1800's United States Hotel when a building permit was issued in 1903 authorizing the construction of a one-story addition designated as the “hotel bar.” In 1914 the United States Hotel was demolished to make way for the Empress Theatre as movies became the rage. Today, the films and hotel are history and only this beautiful old saloon remains, still boasting its original tin ceiling, old-fashioned solid cherry bar and outdoor dining. The bar now enjoys its place in Manayunk as a favorite for dinner, brunch or happy hour for locals and visitors alike. You can always count on the sound of music, sports games and conversation to greet you when you walk through the door.
