We decided that we should stay local because this weather has taken a toll on our energy reserves. What a cold winter we have had in Philadelphia! Manayunk is kind of fancy but the next town–Roxborough–is not. Henry James had some nice reviews so we found it easily and trusted that it would be friendly and not territorial which is the case with some neighborhood bars in Philly. We were not disappointed. The staff was super friendly. There was live entertainment – a guitar player singing popular songs — and the wings that we ordered were delicious. Another plus was low prices! The environment was very attractive and looked like it had been renovated recently.
From their website: “The Henry James Saloon is a friendly neighborhood bar with great sandwiches, platters and eight great beers on tap. We offer the coldest draft beer in town. We have been in business for 22 years. We support many youth organizations in the Roxborough area (i.e.Roman Catholic high School). The Henry James is a great place to talk about sports. Bring your family in, especially kids! Everyone feels comfortable here.”
