Philly Bridal Shower Brunch

c

I am the maid-of-honor to a friend getting married in Philly and am putting together a bridal shower but don't live in the city. I'd love some recommendations on great places to host the shower within the city so guests don't need to trek too far away. It does not necessarily need to be a restaurant that has a private event space but someplace that could comfortably accommodate a crowd of 25+ (aka not cramped and loud). The shower will most likely be in the warmer months so suggestions for places with outdoor spaces are great too. FYI- she is having another shower at Lacroix so that option is out (plus I'd like somewhere a little more low key, intimate and/or cozy).

    not an outside space, but I had a shower at Fork (they have a private room) for a friend a few years ago and they did a wonderful job.

      You might check with M Restaurant at the Morris Hotel. They have a beautiful garden space.

        Ironically she lives in the apartment building next door. When she moved in we went over to the Morris Hotel; we were all enamored with the beautiful building and grounds. I didn't know there was a restaurant on the premises and will definitely look into it. Thank you!
