I collected a few locations of pubs for my bucket list for the night in Havertown — the burbs. All of the choices were irish pubs and parking was plenty. We did not realize that three pubs were within walking distance of one another, a plus.
In my research, I read that the location of The Crossbar was convenient because the bar across the street was very popular! It was often packed and the overflow of people usually crossed the street to The Crossbar when they could not get in to the popular bar. Curious, after reading that review, of course we planned to go to the more popular bar first. We attempted to get in but it WAS packed as the review had warned, so we did as others had done before us. We crossed Darby Road and headed into The Crossbar.
Irish Pub in Havertown
Apparently there are many Irish pubs in Havertown. This Irish pub was tiny, thin and cozy with dark wood, ceiling fans, and a beautiful exposed brick wall. A handsome sculpture of the logo carved in wood adorned the front window. We found a high-top table for three at the end of the busy room and were waited on immediately and ordered craft beers. The crowd was mostly young & attractive people–no families on this cold winter night. The service was quick and friendly. We didn’t order food, waiting for the pizza at the bar across the street!
