I graduated from Temple a few years ago and the Draught Horse was always a go-to bar for my friends and I, and definitely one of the cheapest in Philadelphia that I had experienced.
Fast forward to now - and me visiting w/some old friends to relive memories. WOW has the place changed. The new chef apparently put a lot of thought into the menu because it is now so much more than standard bar food. You can, of course, still get wings and burgers, but they also have a tuna nicoise salad, the special that night was a grilled chicken wrap with feta, arugula, and tomatoes (YUM!) and, the best part of all .... they kept the booze cheap! Happy hour is still 4-7, with dollar High Lifes. They also added a ton of good beer on tap, like Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA and Magic Hat Circus Boy. Definitely not your typical college bar anymore, and I'm surprised at how impressed I was.
If you find yourself looking for a drink after an event at the Liacouras Center, or happen to be in the Temple area for any other reason, definitely check the place out.
