In our almost entirely digital music world, it’s easy to forget the satisfying clink that comes with quarters going into a jukebox and then setting the soundtrack for your favorite bar or hangout spot.
Luckily for Philadelphians, there’s some seriously great jukebox options that allow you to play all-time favorites and brand new jams in an ideal setting. These are five of our favorites.
What more can you ask for from a dimly lit Passyunk Square pub that’s serving top-notch bar food? Well, how about one of the best jukeboxes in town? Seems too good to be true, but you can play killer tunes whether you’re nursing a hangover at brunch or just getting your night started.
When this Old City favorite isn’t hosting local and national acts, there’s still some sweet tunes to be heard courtesy of the old-school jukebox that resides in the bar area. The only downside? You may just spend all your time flipping through the album options and forget about your beer.
Who says Center City can’t totally rock? Case in point: the modern, electric jukebox that allows you to play music from every possible genre at this beloved three-story bar. It’s very good, indeed.
Where do all the jukebox heroes meet? South Street, South Street. Fitting in perfectly with its punk rock decor, the jukebox at this South Street/Queen Village standard goes perfectly with an Ass Basket and a table full of arts and crafts. (Trust us.)
Head a little further west on South Street to the Graduate Hospital area and you’ll stumble upon the jukebox that’s been voted as a Best of Philly winner. For all the jukebox purists, it’s not a digital machine, rather one in which you flip through CDs to find classic tunes to set the mood.
