Neat little out of the way place for poetry. They still have ashtrays on every table (but people still go outside to smoke)
Tell bartender Mike you're adding him on Facebook
Shhh, members only.
Oldest press club in the nation, but as popular with attorneys and Industry folk as with reporters. Good drink prices & friendly staff.
Very good service!!!!
Chefs Marc Vetri and Mike Solomonov take Tony to the local press and chef bar, Pen & Pencil, for some late-night drinks.
You always end up wondering how you got here
Get the alcohol. It will make you smile.
Tried to get in here for a wrap party and because it was 5 minutes past 3 they slammed the door in my face and would hear me out. Last time I'll be coming here.
Anthony Bourdain drank an Irish Car Bomb and a shot of hot dog water (after losing rock-paper-scissors) here while in town filming for his show The Layover.
It's off the record...shhhhh!
I'd be the mayor of this place if I realized I was here.
Prove you're supposed to be there, or shell out $45 for a 'membership'.
Always a good idea
A quasi-private club and notorious late-night hang for reporters, restaurant crews and working media professionals? Well, we know where we’ll be spending our nights from now on
you must show a pay stub or 'clock in' card to prove you work in the restaurant industry and you must get there by 3!
Oh The good Old Poop and Pee!!
FREE hotdogs every night!!
Legend says there's a brass plaque @ a prominent spot in Philly, over the till, that reads, to the 'tenders. "P&P: Always a Bad Idea." It is. But it's an institution, a privilege. Straight Philly. Go.
If you mention Foursquare to Dan the Baretender, he will say: Huh?
The P&P is a private club, but it's pretty easy to talk your way inside. The bar allows smoking and is cash only. Keep an eye out for the free hot dogs cooking in the crock pot.
