Ray’s ‘Happy Birthday’ Bar is a great neighborhood joint located in South Philly at Passyunk and Federal Streets. Just down the block from the world famous cheesesteak shops, Pat’s and Geno’s, the Happy Birthday Bar welcomes visitors young and old into their quaint, friendly environment.

Opened by the late Ray Capozzoli in 1938, his son “Lou Capp” now runs the place. This year marks their own 70th birthday! Pictured below is Yuengling sales representative, Frank Altadonna, presenting Lou Capozzoli with a framed birthday article signed by Dick Yuengling. We appreciate their many years of support for our brands.

If you’ve ever been, you know Ray’s Happy Birthday Bar is steeped in almost as much tradition as America’s Oldest Brewery. These are the kind of establishments that Yuengling is proud to be associated with. We should all be so lucky to live by the simple words that have become Ray’s motto – “Good Times, good drinks, good friends.”

Congratulations to Lou and his bar on 70 years of Happy Birthdays!
