Bachelor Party Dinner

JZuck Sep 16, 2010 02:44 PM

Looking for a fun place with good food to hold a dinner for about 12-15 guys in their late 20's to celebrate a bachelor party. Most of the guys will be coming in from NYC. Price does not matter. Open to any type of food.

      I second Barclay Prime, if money is not an issue. How important is food to this group? I'd recommend Zahav as good food, but I'm not sure if it's a "fun" place. If you want fun, I'd say Distrito in West Philly. Food is excellent there as well.

        I did a bachelor party at Barclay Prime. It's good for dinner, but you won't want to stay there all night.

      Well, food just ok, but fun venue is Lucky Strike, a bowling alley-----------But yeah, for a nice dinner, something like Barclay Prime, Parc, Del Frisco's----would probably hit the bill. Depends exactly what you're looking for.

        Nothing says Bachelor party like meat on a stick..... maybe try Fogo de Chao. It's more of an event and interactive. Especially if you have some "Eaters" in the bunch. I guess the only downfall would be extra full stomachs for the rest of the evening's events. Whatever they may be.

          Thanks for all the suggestions. I have been to all of the above and agree with each of them, the only issue is that they all require "Special Event Reservations" and pre-fixed menus. Can anything think of somewhere that can seat about 15 and allow us to order off the regular menu? Thanks again!

            When I did the bachelor party at Barclay Prime, we had about 10 people, maybe more, and ordered off the regular menu. In fact some people didn't order steaks at all and just shared apps/sides.

            This was summer '09.

            I would inquire at Percy Street Barbecue. Lockharts all around! I've been wishing it were here when I hosted a bachelor party a few years ago.

              Try Koozeedoo. A friend had a bachelor party there recently and it was a big hit-- something different than your usual steak house.

              Another thing to consider... If you plan to go out afterwards, Fogo de Chao or some other big, heavy meals could derail that plan.
