Unique Philly Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding Brunch Spots

We're loving Philadelphia, not just for the incredible wedding venues, but also for the crazy cool restaurants and bars that are popping up around town. Whether you're looking for a spot for your rehearsal dinner, wedding brunch, or even casual drinks with your out-of-town guests, these three spots are our new favorites! (and could also be awesome for a wedding itself!)

A view of the canal, gorgeous industrial decor, and delicious New Orleans-style food make for one awesome restaurant. Bourbon Blue has live music almost every night of the week, and can host seated events for 65, and cocktail style events for up to 150. 

Mission - Rittenhouse

Newly opened on Sansom Street (by the same folks who brought you Oyster House downstairs), Mission is a large, airy, and festive Mexican cantina. Their decor is bright and eccentric, with everything from a foosball table near the bar to a Virgin Mary statue in a small outdoor alcove. You can bring family and friends for a taco night and margaritas, or host an event of 180 in the full space! 

Harp & Crown - Rittenhouse

Directly across the street from Mission is our ultimate new favorite, Harp & Crown. We like it so much we considered not even mentioning so we can keep it a secret! As you enter you're greeted with tons of greenery, huge chandeliers, and antique portraits covering perfectly distressed walls. There's even a bar and 2 bowling lanes in the basement, which is perfect for smaller events! 

Polka Dot is Now in Philly, Too!

The Polka Dot Events Team is very excited to announce that we are now coordinating weddings in Philadelphia (in addition to good ole' NYC)!

Allie, our Month-of Manager, is originally from the City of Brotherly Love, and after some planning and day trips, we've decided to start offering our coordination services to engaged couples in her hometown. Philadelphia has some incredibly unique venues like the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park (a greenhouse available for weddings year round? Yes, please!) and the Cira Centre  (check out the view!), not to mention the beautiful parks and outdoor spaces that are perfect for getting amazing photos. 

So it's official - we are officially open for business for Philadelphia weddings in 2017!  Click here to email us for pricing and here to learn about our services. We can’t wait to work with all the amazing Philadelphia vendors and engaged couples!
