A cavernous music club located in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia, Johnny Brenda’s has become one of the best venues to witness live music in the ever expanding Philadelphia music scene. With all the trimmings of a place from yesteryear, the venue has two floors, a stage floor and a balcony. Local acts such as the Espers, have graced the stage as have numerous out of town and international groups. The vibe is friendly and the club personnel are knowledgeable and helpful.

    Actually I found that it's the 30+ drunk moms who are the worst.

    An oasis in the middle of the hell-hole that is North Philly.

    This is such a great venue. They have a solid selection of beer on tap and the staff is very friendly. Like others have mentioned, parking is along the streets where ever you can find a spot, but the neighborhood is quiet. Besame: every time I have gone, my friends and I have been carded.

    It doesn't have a lot or anything, but parking is fairly easy to come by on Girard around there or on the side streets.
