Pen and Pencil Club

87 of 173:
Pen and Pencil Club

The Pen and Pencil—in addition to being a mighty fine, century-old watering hole—is a real live press club for journalists and writers, with dues-paying members and the whole nine yards.

Pen and Pencil is technically a private club, but hosts a number of “off-the-record” events open to non-journos and service-industry folks. It’s perhaps best known, though, as one of Philly’s most notorious late-night, bad-decision bars.
