I would say within easy walking distance more than a dozen to choose from for bars. Most of them are pub atmosphere, craft beers and burgers, but I will say there are some phenomenal things you can get at London, Birdgid's and Rembrandt's.

Public transportation is very good, if I want to go to Old City/Center city, there is a bus that runs right down 19th st, and down market all the way to Penn's Landing, the 33 bus iirc. As for getting to a game, for me it's a 5 block walk to Broad St subway and that takes you right there. Once the weather turns nice, it's also very walkable to get to center city, or Rittenhouse. Probably a 15 minute walk.

I will say this though, if you can afford Rittenhouse, I would probably choose that. From the sounds of the bars you went to, that seems like a better fit.
