Xfinity Live! is going to change the Philadelphia sports experience forever

Victory Beer Hall - Xfinity Live!

I have to start out this post by saying that this place is going to be bad*ss!

Not only will it be a modern entertainment complex, rivaling any other one like it in the US (or even the world, according to Ed Snider), but it will have Philadelphia sports history literally built into the walls. One of the bars is being constructed with bricks from the old Spectrum, and the Mitchell & Ness retail store will have an original basketball court from old Sixers games as well as original Flyers hockey dasher boards.

In other words, it seems like this project was very well planned and thought out.

There will be 4 major restaurants open for business at XL's March 2012 opening: 1) Broad Street Bullies Pub, 2) Spectrum Grill, 3) PBR Bar & Grill, and 4) Victory Beer Hall (pictured above). Each one of these spots will be a great addition to the South Philly Sports Complex, and you can bet they will be packed before and after games. Who knows, they may even turn into regular lunch spots for Navy Yard employees.

Remember, the complex that's set to open at the end of this month is a drastically scaled back version of what Comcast, Comcast-Spectacor, and The Cordish Company really have planned for this site once the economy allows for it.

If I had to guess, planning for Phase 2 will begin a month or two after Phase 1 opens. Success is imminent for Xfinity Live!.
