My husband and I live in University City. We like to go out for the occasional cocktail, and bars we've enjoyed range from dives to classy. But the decibel level in lots of bars has become increasingly loud--or are we just getting old? I know there are places we could go during the week or early that wouldn't be noisy....yet. Any suggestions for relatively quiet bars we could go for a drink on a Friday or Saturday night?
Our favorite Philadelphia bar right now is the Sidecar, which we love but suspect would be loud on the weekends. We're willing to travel and explore, though!
