Quiet and cozy spot
A laid-back neighborhood bar that is a great place for inexpensive drinks. Customers can sit here and watch Locust Street go by through the large windows.

      Laid back place. Cool bathrooms. 6 urinals side by side without partitions. Good food, a bit pricy but good. Drinks are always strong too!!!

      Loved it!
      Uncle's is a great option for those of you who don't enjoy having to scream to be heard at your friend/date when engaged in conversation. Additionally, the staff there are all very hospitable, kind, and the bartenders know how to make great drinks at a great price as well. A visit at least once is highly recommended!

      Great for street events
      This is the place to be to people watch when the outdoor GLBT events ate happening. Big open air space where you can sit inside at tables, enjoy cocktails, and still be part of the action. Great place to meet friends and just relax too. Neighborhood type of bar.

      This is a bar for mature men. NOT for the younger crowd unless they are into a mature crowd. VERY friendly staff and customers. Just be sure and let them know you are either new in town or from out of town. EVERYONE talks to everyone in this bar. It is a small bar and the rectangular bar blends in well for people talking with each other. We had a great time there.

      Older crown but FUN.
      I enjoyed it here. Everyone is pretty friendly. It's deffinitely older, but they're super nice. There's a B+B upstairs which is funny. I would surely go back next time in Philly. Worth a pop in.

      A little too clickish. I thought a one got more mature that the young bitchy clicky attitude departed...obviously not here. And I don't know why they are being so....not one of the most attractive crowds in town....a bit in-bredish as the overheard conversations seem to deal with who has slept with who at the bar...possible with bags over their heads for anonymity and sanity. The large, open windows are a plus and the palms outside remind one of Key West....luckily the windows are not on a higher level or more of the patrons would use them to hurl themselves out of due to boredom. They would, however, find themselves landing on a cracked-out youngster trying to pick up one of the older regulars.

      If you have never been there don't waste your time bartenders with attitude. Went there with friends on a Sunday afternoon and it was like pulling teeth to get service. Would NEVER go back.

      Definitely an Older Crowd
      I only popped in for a moment, but the crowd was definitely older. I mean, I felt young.. Yikes!

      great for conversation with a stranger
      I think Uncles is excellent. the croud does range a little higher in age but I would say more like 30 and up, which can be refreshing. On good nights you can meet a hot "straight" guy there, it's the kind of place that makes them comfortable and relaxed. Trust me, I lived close by in my 20's. HA HA!! It is also a nice place to chat. The bar is oval, which I LOVE! Go and have a good time, it's full of positive energy. Oh, and the bartenders are superb! ;)
