Old World class with a thoroughly modern spa, bistro and bar on Philly’s main drag
Marble pillars and a domed rotunda harken back to the building's days as a turn of the century bank. But the feel inside is buzzy and modern with a swank cocktail bar backed by bold fuschia panels, graphic printed rugs and banquettes in hot pink, orange and chocolate and modern chandeliers showering crystals from the ceiling. Locals and guests alike sip seasonal cocktails while DJS spin from 10-1:30 am Thursdays and Fridays with live music from 6:30-10 pm on Wednesdays. Organic, local ingredients inspire the regional American fare on offer at the bistro. And guests unwind at the award-winning spa, which offers treatments inspired by the city’s art scene (the “curtain call” includes a hot stone massage and aromatherapy). Upstairs, rooms feel traditional Ritz with a warm palette of pumpkin, buttercup and sage, marble bathrooms with mother-of-pearl vanities, flatscreen TVs and iPod/iPhone docking stations.
In the Area
By Philly’s City Hall, the brotherly vibes have long been in effect at bars like Mcgillin’s Olde Ale House, which has been serving up house ales since the year Lincoln took office. Across the street is the modern answer the brewpub, BRU Craft & Wurst, which serves up nouveau Bavarian fare and an extensive menu of brews, including some in massive boots and others self-served from taps on the wall. The hottest table in town these days is Talula’s Garden, a pretty little aerie with a farmhouse-inspired, 10-course tasting menu that changes daily based on what’s in season. Be sure to spend some magical time exploring Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, a dream world of colorful mosaics, tunnels and grottos that house a community art center.
