Hi, I was hoping someone here could recommend a good bar in Philadelphia that can handle a group of 25-30 people on a Friday night. My sister has asked me to see if I could find a place for a pre-wedding reception get together.
A few of the particulars:
They're looking for more a bar than a restaurant vibe. It should probably be family friendlier (not in a kids sense, but a moms and dads, grandma, and aunts and uncles from out of town sense.) And they can't really afford to go the private room rental route, but it would be a bonus if it were a place where we might be able to reserve a few tables beforehand. Oh, and I don't really know Philly all that well, but the reception is at the Free Library and the hotel everyone's staying at is nearby, so they were looking for something close to that area.
I've been looking into some places online, but it's hard to get a real feel for what they're like, so any help would definitely be appreciated.
