Welcome to another Friday edition of… The Branded Hour. Where we are in search of “The Perfect 30” We are doing some very hard research to give you the top notch grades of the best Happy Hour’s around. (Remember if there’s one thing here at Branded Sports that we know besides sports and being awesome… It’s Bars.)
Last week Barnaby’s received:
27.5 out of 30.
Today’s spotlight review is:
Name: Tony’s Place Bar and Grille
Location: Ivyland, PA (Bucks)
Happy Hour Time: Mon-Fri: 4-6
Specials: 1/2 off all drinks/select apps
Facebook: Tony’s Place Ivyland
I discovered Tony’s Place a few years ago from my wife. A good friend of ours worked there so I said what the hell let’s try it. Been there a ton of times since then because… Well because it’s awesome.
It is by far one of my favorite spots for Happy Hour, or any hour for that matter. When I started doing The Branded Hour it was a no brainer that Tony’s Place was going to be high on the list of reviews.
We went a few weeks ago on a beautiful Friday evening and it was packed as always. The place gets so crowded that you have to valet your car. I always feel classy when I pull up to a place with a valet. I mean what’s more classy then having someone else park your car?
They have a huge bar inside with a ton of seating. High tops in the bar, booths and regular tables. Perfect for the quieter crowd and the colder months. But… It’s still summertime baby, and there’s nothing better than drinking outside in the summer!
Tony’s has the best outside patio/bar in the area. A ton of seating with umbrellas. A huge bar that is undercover so even when it’s raining… You are good to go. Then around the entire patio is a very nice cement wall with bench seating and a fire place… BOOM.
It really has everything you could ask for in an outdoor Happy Hour. Did I mention HALF OFF ALL DRINKS?! Yup, beer on tap.. Check. Bottled beer.. Check. Liquor on top of liquor.. Double Check! Add the top of the line apps that are also half off and you have yourself a good old fashion “its 5’oclock RIGHT HERE!”
GRADES: (All out of 30)
Alcohol: Again I say.. Half off all drinks. You like well drinks? That’s fine they are half off. Your wife likes top shelf martinis? Cool.. Half off. You want an ice cold beer? Awesome.. Half off. The mixed drinks are awesome, the beer is cold, oh and did it mention.. Half off. SCORE: 9.9
Food: Half off coming at you again. Half off select apps.. And they are all bangin! I especially enjoyed the Tony’s wings, Dynamite Cauliflower, fried calamari, buffalo chicken dip and pretzel bites. Oh and they even make awesome pizza! SCORE: 8.8
Atmosphere: I think I talked in length about how great the outdoor patio is. I am going to let that speak for itself. Only downfall (and not to everyone) only two outdoor TVs. SCORE: 9.4
Bonus: Happy Hour is Monday thru Friday from 4-6. However if you are trying to not let Monday ruin your Sunday… You can Happy Hour all over again at Tony’s Place on Sunday from 9-11PM. Same great specials. Boom.
Parking is valet during high traffic times. (Please tip those dudes they are working hard.) Uber/Lyft also fully available in the area… Don’t be stupid!
Overall Score: 28.1 out of 30. Tony’s Place is the new Branded Hour high score!
Like I keep saying… This place is the perfect outdoor Happy Hour spot. As they say for you GOT fans, “Winter is coming” so enjoy every nice day we have left until then. And, do it at Tony’s Place.
Drink responsibly #ForTheBrand
