Challenge: Bridal Shower in the City for 50!

I know it might seem impossible but my sister was hoping to have a bridal shower at a spot in the city (Philly, for those readers in the suburbs and beyond) that could accomodate at least 50 people... nothing over the top, juts a nice place with good food and enough room for a group of gals to get together and have a good time... please help! Thanks for any insight!

  1. How much are you willing to spend?

    I mean, if you're willing to spend a lot, you could probably rent an entire restaurant.

    1. Paradiso (in South Philly) has a private upstairs room that would easily hold 50.

      1. You can probably get something reasonable in Chinatown, with a private room and banquet menu. Perhaps others can suggest a specific place? Thank you.

          A friend of mine had a rehearsal dinner upstairs at Ly Michael, 11th & Arch - fusion menu. She said everyone loved it.

        2. Try Square on Square on Chestnut near 19th. Fresh good Chinese food. They have a large second floor that would suit your group.

            Yes, we went to a lovely party on the second floor of Square on Square.

          2. Brunch? Lunch? Dinner? If you are flexible with time and could make it an afternoon, it might be easier to find a restaurant that you could take over.... Beau Monde?
