Places for a large group near the Keswick (Glenside)

15 women are headed to the Keswick for my sister-in-law's bachelorette party. We are seeing a show and then after are heading to Plush for after-show drinks.

I need some ideas for places to take the group BEFORE the show for apps/dinner and drinks. Any other places besides the Keswick Tavern? (And is there a nail salon nearby for some of us to get our nails done?)


Keswick Tavern
294 N Keswick Ave, Glenside, PA 19038

  1. There's a Greek place nearby, Athena I think? They have a killer appetizer platter of different dips with delicious pita. The food is okay, but we keep going back for that appetizer platter.

      I haven't been to Athena in a while, but I am pretty sure it is still BYOB and cash only, which may affect your decision.

        Athena is the only "nice" place within a few blocks of the Keswick. There is an OK chinese restaurant next to the Keswick that would due if your not expecting China town quality
        . The only pretty good place that could handle 15 and parking that I can think of is "Kitchen Bar" on 611 about 4 blocks north of Abington Hospital. It is a fairly straight shot from there to the Keswick using Highland ave. It is across the street from a large shopping center (Target) so you could all meet and park, and take fewer cars to the Keswick area.

        My Mrs says there are 1 or 2 nail places near the Keswick. 1 is called Lisa's and is in the row with Athena.
