Inn Philadelphia

Restaurant

Quote:
this place was recently named one of the most romantic restaurants in philly- in an old townhouse decorated and with the feel of a luxe orivate home. piano players at the bar, dining upstairs and down and a gorgeous outdoor courtyard with tiny torches and tiny white lights. great food and wine, definitely an experience!

this place is architecturally incredible. the lobby bar is in the rotunda lobby, a huge neoclassic cavern of a room with gorgeous decor on a stunning scale. you'll be looking up and around the whole time! a very civilized place for a drink and to soak up the history. impress a date!
