Steam Pub – Happening List Winner Late Night Dining and Happy Hour
606 2nd Street Pike, Southampton, PA 18966
Why we love them: We love this tavern’s inventive use of space! Built in an ex-train station, Steam Pub has an extensive list of craft beers and a top notch seasonal menu that makes it a standout. They also host frequent live music shows and events. We’re partial to 90’s night, which is a great excuse to don your best flannel shirt and grab a few friends to dance the night away to Spice Girls.
105 S Main St, New Hope, PA 18938
Why we love them: Havana has been a staple on the New Hope restaurant scene for some time and for good reason. Their tropical themed restaurant offers some unique and delicious dishes like Apricot Glazed Wings or Portobello Paninis, but also has live music almost weekly. You can enjoy their outside seating, listen to cover bands and people watch along Main Street.
McStew’s Irish Pub
5316 New Falls Rd, Levittown, PA 19056
Why we love them: A classic sports pub, located unassumingly in the Levittown suburbs. While their menu may not be fancy, you can find local pub favorites like wings or potato skins. You can enjoy Karaoke night with a group of friends on Friday night or enjoy a live performance by a local band on Saturdays.
