As far as outdoor bars go in Old City, OCBG is probably the most low-key one you'll find. It’s essentially just an empty lot next to Sto’s filled with a few picnic tables, some corn hole boards, and a bunch of beach chairs that people bring themselves. The small tiki shack you order from has tons of local canned beers, and you’re pretty much guaranteed that you won’t be discovered unless someone’s gotten completely lost on their way to the Constitution Center.
