I really enjoyed Grape Street Philadelphia. Manayunk is a really great neighborhood, even made a native New Yorker like myself want to move out here. It's the best of both worlds, one venue is dj's for those who like to dance, and a live band for those who are servants to rock. My only gripe with the whole experience was at 10 minutes to closing, they put on a song , played the first 10 seconds, and flipped the lights on, signaling it was time to go. It was very abrupt, and frankly a really crap way to end a night. I also had 3 drinks, all margaritas, and I was charged 3 different prices by 3 different bartenders. They were good,but sort of overpriced for what I understand is Philly standard. I have paid less for margaritas in NYC, so it was a bit of a shock.
Pros: great atmosphere, good view of stage, inexpensive cover
Cons: ended night abruptly
