This is a great event space. It works well for large groups, art, and groups. We checked it out on a Wed. night for an art opening and the place was packed! The art was amazing, and everyone had a great time. The service was slow and they closed the back bar way early. But I guess it was a Wed. night. The beds are comfy and the $35 dollar deal made it more affordable for sure. Still wasn't super impressed with the food or the show, with the exception of one act...the contortionists were great! Supes fun to watch.

Two friends and I ventured over to Le Viet on a Friday night looking for a BYO that was not our usual Italian fare. From the outside, the building looks like a converted bank and inside the decor is oddly "posh" for this area of town - minimal and contemporary. We started with the Goi Ngo Sen (shredded lotus stalks with peanuts, pork and shrimp in a vinaigrette) simply because it contained lotus stalks, and we made the right choice. This dish was downright heavenly. Light and citrusy - I could have eaten pounds of it. Between the three of us at the table, we ordered a tofu/noodle dish, lemongrass chicken and the salmon. All three were exceptional and made me eager to come back and try the rest of the menu. We lingered over our meal and ordered dessert, which was the only disappointing part of the meal - in that it was merely adequate. Staff was polite and attentive. The restaurant was reasonably full for a Friday night, which I was happy to see. For sports fans - the bar on one side of the dining room had a couple large flat-screen tvs. We were able to keep an eye on the Phillies game from our table, but the tvs weren't a distracting presence.

This place reminds me of those trendy lounge spots in L.A. Halo is a very cool place to come and chill, dance, socialize, and have drinks. The crowd is mixed (meaning black, white, Asian) and diverse. Ladies usually come to Halo dressy or semi-casual and the men usually wear anything that's clean (as always). The DJ is really good. He played music from every genre seems like. Halo is definitely a place where you HAVE to visit.
