Frankford Hall, a Stephen Starr restaurant in Fishtown, offers a communal experience that makes it easy to mix and mingle. The outdoor patio is open during both warm and cool months (there are gas heaters and fire pits, the latter of which are perfect for roasting s’mores) and seating at picnic tables, each equipped with Jenga. The eatery also offers ping pong and board games, making it feel like a house party.

There are nine beers on tap and 10 more in bottles, but the must-have is the giant soft pretzel. The menu also offers brats and burgers, vegetarian included, as well as shakes (alcoholic or non-alcoholic). For dessert, try the large German chocolate cupcake.

Hours are 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., Mondays to Fridays, and noon to 2 a.m., Saturdays and Sundays.
