The Best Non-Hipster Philly Dive Bars in Each Neighborhood

Just as in the case with New York, the hipsters are swarming into once blighted neighborhoods and are the marines of urban gentrification.  Hipsters are usually the first outsiders to infiltrate neighborhoods and are on the front lines when it comes to starting new  “hip” and “trendy” bars.  However, for locals that grew up with the rough and tumble blue collar streets of Philadelphia, there’s nothing like an old school neighborhood bar.  Philly is a bar town.  Many of these bars have been around for decades and are staples in certain communities.  So for those looking for the classic Philly blue collar neighborhood dive bar without having to mingle with folks on 10 speed bikes and makeshift jean capris, here are The Best Non-Hipster Philly Dive Bars in Each Neighborhood.
