We've been in Philadelphia 2 days - and we've been to Grace Tavern 2 times - it is that good. Half old-man bar, half hipster/ rocky boys, half tasty upscale nosh - what's not to love. Ok I loved it more in the afternoon when it wasn't so crowded (the evening was a bit too much - noise, music, people.) What a great fun place - tasty beer too

Hmmm...I thought this was a dance place. Apparently, the crowd didn't get the memo. It was relatively quiet on a Saturday night at midnight. Despite a decent sound system and some good sets by the DJs, only a few people felt the need to shake their booty. Even when a song came on specifically imploring that the crowd to do so. You can imagine the song I'm talking about: "shake your booty, shake your booty, shake your booty..." and on and on. Two of their scantily (and I do mean scanty) clad dancers were the only ones really getting into the music. But I guess they were paid to do that. Dunno about this one... good space, plenty of seats, decent DJs. No energy. Maybe an off night?
