Restaurant Near Fluid Nightclub

Will be meeting up with some friends I haven't seen in forever for dinner. Afterwords, they'll be heading to Fluid to relive the '80's retro scene, & while I cannot join them at the club, we are looking for some nearby places to dine beforehand. My 11 yr old may be tagging along. Suggestions? I'm out of the scene & don't know how to navigate the city very well. Thanks!

  1. There's actually a pretty good restaurant just downstairs from Fluid, The Latest Dish. My recommendation would be Southwark which is a block away at 4th and Bainbridge.

    1. Thanks, Bucket & tbl42...our primary concerns are parking & a location where those of us who do have children (all >10) can bring our kids as well. I'll research your suggests. Truly appreciate the feedback!

        There is a surface parking lot at Bainbridge and Passyunk (5th) right around the corner. Most places mentioned will be fine with kids - maybe not Copa

    2. Depending on what night of the weekend you're going, the 1000 block of south street is usually a good place to start for metered parking. I've noticed that on weeknights there are lots of spots around 7pm (they are 2hr spots until 7 and then 3hrs until 10). Then, you're really close to Percy St BBQ, which has some big tables and would be a great place for adults and older kids (they also take reservations, which can be helpful for organizing a group).
