The Trestle Inn is, simply put, a very cool joint. It boasts a decent beer list, and impressive whiskey list, and decent food to boot. The decor is perfect.
Large video projections of black and white go-go dancers play on the wall in the background. They might make your grandparents blush, but this place is for guys and gals.
Happy hour has some decent specials, $3 Whiskey Sours are the deal. Some of the other prices, like $7 per oz of Jamison, are flat-out criminal. The snack plate, with little meat and veggie bites, is a near perfect appetizer and/or bar snack.
I remember when this was a dirty, shady bar serving underage Temple students. Other than the storefront, everything has changed.
Bottom Line: Trestle Inn is swank. That fact alone will bring hordes of people, including me, back again and again.
