I'm planning a bachelor's party for a friend in Philadelphia who is not into the typical "bachelor party" scene. Does anyone know of any cool lounges or bars with a vibe similar to The Edison in LA? (http://www.edisondowntown.com/)

    As I am not at all familiar with LA, care to share any more descriptions of the vibe? That would be helpful for suggestions.

        yeah, you know, Southwark is a good suggestion. It's masculine and kinda schwanky in an old fashioned kinda way. And they have a lot of space in the dining room. Maybe after dinner service you could move into there since the bar is small. Worth looking into.
        Not to mention they have the best Sazerac outside of NOLA.

          I challenge both of you to stand up in the bar at Southwark and announce to the assembled staff and patrons that you've recommended the establishment for a bachelor party - upscale, atypical, or otherwise.

          And let me know when you're going to undertake this announcement, so I can have your seat.

            perhaps i read too much into the OP, but i assumed that "not ... the typical bachelor party scene" meant precisely the type of group that wouldn't stand up at the bar and announce that they were holding a bachelor's party. or, in other words, that wouldn't call unnecessary attention to itself in that typically obnoxious bachelor party way.
