Bridal Shower Suggestions in Montgomery County

jaxstone | Jul 24, 201206:35 PM     3


I'm in charge of finding a nice location for a bridal shower in early December. An ideal location would be a 15 mile radius around Jenkintown so towns including Ambler, Chestnut Hill, Horsham, Willow Grove, Lafayette Hill, Conshohocken, etc.. even Manayunk. Ideally, I'd like to find somewhere with a nice bar area as well since it will be coed and the guys will be having some cocktails and watching college football. Its looking like it will be 40-45 women, 20 men. I have 2 top contenders but they aren't 100% perfect so I was looking for any suggestions. First thought is From the Boot in Ambler as we love the one in Lafayette Hill (and have been to a party in the one in Ambler). Only slight downfall is that the room is downstairs and the mom-to-be likes lots of windows. Very minor in the grand scheme of things. But I also can't remember what the bar was like there and if they had any TVs. Second choice was the Kitchen Bar in Jenkintown. They have this great patio type room that is heated and fine during the winter. Only issue is it holds 35, maybe 40 max, and we might be pushing over that. They have an upstairs room that is fine as well and a great bar area. Pricing seems more expensive than FTB, the upstairs room didn't have a ton of windows and I don't think the nicer room will fit.. and they really didn't have buffet type options (both sides of the families love buffet type meals).

So, after looking around at other topics I thought I would post to see if anyone had any other suggestions. Basics are: private room for 40-50 with a separate bar area for the guys with some TVs for sports watching, buffet type preferred. Thanks in advance for your help!
