I haven't been to the bar. But this place is possibly the best venue for small shows. I saw Langhorne Slim here and the sound was perfect. Because of the layout, it seemed like a very intimate show but high energy at the same time. And you could still navigate to the bar for a drink. One of the best venues in Philly.

I find it hard to believe that previously to last night, I had never been to this place. Maybe it's cuz whenever I'm in the Mission I'm either on 16th or 24th streets - guess I'm kinda unadventurous in that way (or Kilowatt and Skylark are just THAT fun)... Anyway, Bruno's is your standard Mission dance club/bar, with a couple of dance floors and bars inside. There's a small cover after 10pm, but drink prices are reasonable, said drinks are nice and strong, and because there's multiple bars it doesn't take eons to get a drink. This place is fun - the dancing is infectious and the variety of rooms adds to the atmosphere. And christ, for the Mission, there are some seriously hot chicks here on Saturday nights... So I realize this review has been very stream-of-consciousness, but I'm hungover after having too much fun at the place I'm reviewing. So that ain't bad, right?

Really cool space, but the manager really needs to work on her customer service. I called Brunos last week to reserve a couple of tables for an upcoming birthday party I'm planning and Lara, the manager, answered the phone. I told her that I wanted to make a reservation, but she cut me off and said, "I'm busy right now - leave your # and i'll call you back." I never got that return call. My boyfriend called her back a few days later and managed to book a couple of tables. We realized this week that we forgot to ask about logistics - cover charge/birthday guest list/etc...so I called back yesterday and got Lara on the phone. I said i had a quick question - we have tables reserved for next weekend and just wanted to find out about covercharge/guestlist. This time she said - I don't have my book in front of me, call me back later and just hung up. I don't care how busy you are, good phone manners is the very least I would expect from someone who's JOB it is to work with customers... Long story short - we're throwing our party elsewhere....
