Hi

Moving to the Lansdale area and just wondering where the younger demographics hang out. Its a quieter town so maybe I just have to get used to it but hanging out at Backyard Beans one day I see that the 30 and younger actually hang out here. Just wondering any other places you may know of

They definitely like to go around to the different local bars there- no doubt. I don't know which they are offhand without googling, so I don't have a "sense" of Lansdale proper per se. Just know from driving other people in that area.

I'm 23. I'm not too sure of what Lansdale has to offer, but I wouldn't be too surprised if they have some good food and beer offerings nowadays. Otherwise, I'd be hopping on the train bound for either Doylestown or Ambler. Both of those towns have a lot of exciting things going on! In particular, Ambler has a few nice restaurants.

Yeah I drove by Ambler and thought it was a pretty exciting place and saw Doylestown on google maps which seem to have a lot of places. Anything in particular you may recommend?

Having been to a lot of cities and being in real estate, I see potential in Lansdale Main Street as a social/nightlife hub in the future. Especially with Madison apartments building up there.

Consider getting an Uber to Conshohocken or Manayunk. It will probably cost upwards of $100 round-trip but if you split it with a couple friends, it would be worth it.

In Doylestown, I'd recommend M.O.M's (Maxwell's On Main). Best craft beer selection anywhere, good food, live music, etc.

By the way, Im new here so I noticed a lot of places sell independent and off brand booze. Like I cant get a shot of Jameson whiskey at the bar. Anyone care to explain?

If you are in Lansdale, check out PJ Whelihan's on route 202. Huge place with a young/party crowd on weekends. They clear out the tables and chairs on Fridays and Saturdays and bring in a DJ and it's a good time. They will have Jameson for sure. Phoenixville, Ambler, Doylestown, Conshohocken, Manayunk, King of Prussia (to a lesser extent) will have these scenes as well.

I'm going to generalize, and will list some caveats below, but I find the nightlife scene north of Philadelphia to be "off". The social scene seems more cliquish; people want to mingle among themselves instead of truly being social. Bars are judged on drinks and nachos instead of atmosphere.

As far as the nightlife hot spots within Philadelphia itself (Old City, Northern Liberties, Manayunk, Rittenhouse Square, even Xfinitiy Live if there's an event), it's lots of people having a big night out and going bonkers.

I'm not saying that the bars in the western Philadelphia suburbs (Media, West Chester, Main Line, Phoenixville) are as crazy as Philadelphia-proper, but it's definitely more lively and unpredictable than the northern suburbs.

Caveats:
1) I've never been to Doylestown
2) I grew up in the western suburbs, so I'm admittedly biased
