The Bike Stop
206 S. Quince St., 215/627-1662,
Philly’s leather bar is a chill neighborhood watering hole to gather with friends and enjoy cheap pitchers—and the occasional spanking. Depending on the night, patrons can see either sitcom reruns on the flat-panel TVs or watch a leather-clad man getting whipped on stage; it’s the luck of the draw.
The little-used 3rd floor offers a small dance floor, but it’s the downstairs Pit Stop room that draws a crowd for its underwear-only Wednesdays and cruise-y weekend nights.
