It’s been over a decade since we’ve seen the Phillies in the playoffs. The team clinched a National League Wild Card spot on Monday night in Houston, and they will play Game 1 of a best-of-three NL Wild Card Series at 2 p.m. ET on Friday in St. Louis.

Here’s where Philadelphians can post up in the city to watch the Phillies.

Cavanaughs Rittenhouse 

In an all-new location, Cavanaugh’s Rittenhouse held its grand opening earlier this fall, and now, it offers a prime location to watch the Phillies in the playoffs. As a release states, in their new home, Cavanaugh’s Rittenhouse will feature two levels with 4,000+ square feet of space, with 45 seats at the bar and 70 seats at tables on the ground main level. The space also features 25 seats at the bar, 10 at the rail looking over the lower level and 40 more at tables on the second/mezzanine level—so, there’s ample opportunity here to watch a win. In total look for around 190 seats inside, with outdoor seating to be added next year as well. 

The downstairs and upstairs bars will both feature full service bars, plus plenty of TVs and sound systems for an all-star game day. For game day action, Cavanaugh’s aims to be the premiere new hot spot for Eagles, Sixers, Phillies, Flyers and more, and come this Friday, look for 22 large screen HD televisions, and an 11 foot high resolution big screen to play the playoffs.

This old-school South Philly bar is a great spot to post up and watch the game if you still want to get that by-the-stadium feeling. With plenty of seats in and around the bar — which is also surrounded by TVs — guests can watch their team in the game while sipping on a wide variety of libations (especially beer) and munch on some classic bar snacks.
