If you’ve ever had a dream about going to a rock concert and romantically locking eyes with someone across the room in the middle of a song - then you should go to Johnny Brenda’s on a show night. The Fishtown spot is a full-on concert venue, with a stage and small balcony upstairs. And if jumping in a crowd of sweaty people isn’t exactly your scene, they also have a big downstairs bar where you can play some pool or just hang out with a few beers and some bar snacks.
