Challenge: Bridal Shower in the City for 50!

jandrewmanne May 30, 2007 04:08 PM

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!

    I don't know if this is against the rules, but if you want to email me at jessicheese@hotmail.com, I work at a place that would be perfect. I'd be happy to give more info.

      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?

        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.

          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.

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

              How much are you willing to spend?

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