wednesday mid-afternoon drinks

hi all!

so i have 3 friends coming into town on wednesday on different flights (supposedly) landing between the hours of 1pm and 3pm, and i have no car with which to pick them up. so they're all cool with hopping on the R1 train and meeting me in center city, where we'll head to a bar and have martinis and snacks as we wait for the others to arrive. they're going to have luggage, so i wanted to pick a place super-close to either market east or suburban station, where they won't have to walk far (and also a place where bringing in carry-on-sized suitcases wouldn't pose a problem). it's an all-grrrl reunion, so we're gonna want a place with awesome martinis and summery cocktails. and yummy finger foods. we're going to be eventually taxi-ing back to my place, dropping off luggage, and taking the el down to the phillies game where we'll probably stuff ourselves on either ballpark or chickie's & pete's food.

i have a few places in mind so far, but definitely look forward to hearing others.
el vez?
the ritz carlton bar?
sole food at the loews?

haven't been to any of these three in about two years, so would be interested in hearing your opinions and ideas. el vez is about the max distance from the train station i'd want them to have to walk. thanks all!! :)
