No, this isn’t a place to wash your clothes… it’s the hottest new nightclub in Philadelphia. Impress your date by knowing the secrets to getting inside: non-members should show up around 5 or 6 to have a chance. Be sure to adhere to the dress-code, gentlemen: no sandals, long pants. This is a place to order cocktails instead of beer or wine. The bartenders are well-skilled, and happy to create anything from bourbon drinks to Sazeracs. If you meet Mr. Lee’s approval, you and your date will be escorted inside this well-guarded dating destination.
Love Italian food? Visit the oldest open market in the United States for gourmet specialty delights. Stroll through this outside market filled with antique shops, bakeries, restaurants, sandwich shops and so much more. You go there, and buy fresh seafood from the market and go back to your place to prepare a delicious meal together.
After visiting the Italian Market, splurge on a luxe French dinner. Bibou sets the standard for fine dining in Philadelphia. If you want to impress a foodie, this prixe fixe destination is the place to go. The service is stellar, and Philly locals agree that this is one of the best places to get French food in the city. Adventurous diners should try the marrow, which is a favorite of reviewers. Remember to hit the ATM and grab a good bottle of wine before you go: Bibou is cash-only and BYOB!
