Its patrons, like the neighborhood around it, are mostly black, and Michael Jackson and old soul hits pour loudly and generously out of the Touch Tunes digital jukebox. There are tightly ridged grooves cut into its balsa wood walls, which are the color of football leather. Mondays are free pretzel night, and everything on the bottom shelf is always $2. There’s also a giant bottle of Jacquin’s rum behind the bar. Jacquin’s is a local distiller of rum, vodka and assorted other spirits, and nearly everything they make is cloyingly sweet, but people seem to really dig their rum here, as it, along with a big jug of E&J brandy, gets tipped quite a bit.
They’re the only things in Bonner’s that’ll remind you you’re re living in this decade. Though the place has only been around for about fifteen years, the building it’s located in is as old as the men at its bar. Like them, it’s also falling apart. The doors are off their hinges. The paint is peeling. The tile is chipped. The bathrooms at Bonner’s are also from a century ago, back when people were as tiny as hobbits. You’ve seen bigger sinks in a dollhouse. Good luck finding toilet paper or paper towels.
It’s perhaps the only dive in Philly where you can watch an episode of Jeopardy with a roomful of drunks who know the answer to every question. Please don’t mistake any of this—the Salinger talk, the sci-fi, the spirited intellectual—for pretentiousness, however, as putting on airs here will get you promptly dismissed. Doobie’s has a larger-than-most-dives collection of always-rotating craft beers. One night might see a variety of Dock Street brew or Fuller’s. The chalkboard with the day’s menu specials and weekly beer lists is constantly being updated, and all of the suds here—craft or no—can be had for relatively cheap.
