Passyunk Avenue is a Philadelphia-inspired dive bar serving the region’s iconic cuisine alongside classic American beers. Located inside one of the impressive Victorian arches on the Southbank just a five-minute walk from Waterloo station, this has become a popular spot with both American expats and London locals. On the menu, expect a variety of classic American dishes, showcasing of course, Philadelphia’s most famous export; the cheesesteak. Head here for a chilled-out evening of snacks and beer whilst watching the biggest sports in the US streamed live to the big TV, or settle in for a full meal and enjoy the finest Philly cuisine in the capital.

Start off with the signature wings flavoured with buffalo, BBQ or honey mustard, served with blue cheese or ranch dipping sauce or try the spinach and artichoke dip, ever-popular back in the US. For the main event, there’s a selection of speciality sandwiches on offer, suitable for any taste. The Jersey turnpike hoagie is inspired by the Soprano Badlands of North Jersey and includes chicken cutlet, roasted red pepper, mozzarella and balsamic, or try the South Philly sausage with sautéed peppers and onions. If you’re after the true taste of Philly, opt for the classic cheesesteak; a hoagie roll filled with rib-eye steak topped with onions and provolone. The filling can be substituted for chicken thighs if steak isn’t your thing, and you can personalise it with added bacon, mushrooms or chillies. Vegans are also included on this well-thought out menu, with options including eggplant parm and vegan meatball sandwiches.

Sample a whole host of American beers, ales and lagers from Hawaii to Brooklyn, some available in a pitcher size, perfect to accompany a long evening with friends watching the sport. The cocktail list is imaginative and enticing, and there is a huge range of international spirits and an extensive whiskey selection to whet your appetite.
