Drinks in Rittenhouse?? Alfresco?

michael May 31, 2007 08:57 AM

I'm looking for a casual yet mid to upscale place for drinks in Rittenhouse this Friday night. 9ish. Someplace trendy, attractive atmosphere, lively while allowing conversation. Alfresco would be nice if the weather permits.

I know of a few - Tria, Rouge, Loie, Snackbar, Tinto, Alma de Cuba.. Any favorites among these? Any recent additions to the mix?

    Tria has been a favorite since they opened. Continental's rooftop, just down the block, is fun, and they cook hamburgers/hotdogs there. I love Rouge, but it's impossible to get a table on weekends, and expensive. The bar at Devon Seafood, next door to Rouge, is very happening, too, and it is open to the outside. But pretty noisy

      I'd second Tria or Snackbar. I liked Tinto when I was there for dinner a few weeks ago, but they don't have outdoor seating. Also, the Continental at 18th and Chestnut just opened a rooftop bar. I haven't been there yet, but it's on my list of places to check out.
