The Bike Stop family is… well.. a family.
One of the things we’ve heard pretty frequently over the years is that it’s impossible to get hired here because no one ever leaves. We’re proud of creating a space where our staff become members of our family and stick with us, grow with us and when needed move into new positions. You’ve probably seen this gentleman around the bar for the last few years in several different capacities; Maso started as a customer and was asked to join us at the clubhouse a little over three years ago.
As of last week when our dear Gaines moved down south (it’s like one of our sons went off to college; we’re checking in to make sure he’s eating and getting enough sleep) Maso has accepted the position of Main Bar bartender. He’s stepping behind a bar that’s been home to legendary Bike Stop staffers and we couldn’t be more proud of the work he’s done in his time with us.
So come wish him luck- You can find Maso on the main bar on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights as well as hosting his epic VICE!PHILADELPHIA party every second Thursday down in the ‘Pit.
We’ve added a few new products to our beer lineup here at the ‘Stop- including delicious lager from the fine folks at Brooklyn Brewery. It comes in at a comfortable 5.2% ABV. In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centers in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favorites. Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.
Come in and have a cold one!

The Bearracuda Men are back in town!
I was just saying to myself that it’s been far too long since we’ve had a Bearracuda take-over at the ‘Stop, and lo and behold I checked the calendar and saw that they’re making their triumphant return on Saturday May 7th, starting at 9pm. We’ve given them the top two floors again, so there’ll be plenty of room to meet new friends, catch up with old ones and maybe even get some cruising in!
The $7 cover is for the top two floors, with our Main and Basement bars being free for all.
Come check out the sounds of DJ Mateo Segade and enjoy one of our favorite parties of the year!
