Drinks in Rittenhouse?? Alfresco?

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?

  1. I'd go to Tria or Snackbar.

    1. 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.

      1. 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
