Great Hot Dates in Philadelphia
1. The Rittenhouse
If you can’t get lucky following an afternoon in the hotel’s spa, a romantic dinner at Lacroix (indulge in the well-worth-it $125 chef’s tasting menu) and nightcaps at the Library Bar — easily the sexiest little lounge in town — then we don’t know what to tell you. Rittenhouse, 215-546-9000.
2. The Clay Studio
Each Friday night, this Old City pottery gallery offers “date nights” at which you get to channel your inner Demi/Patrick while shaping wet clay on your own potter’s wheel. The $70-a-couple fee includes beer and wine. Old City, 215-925-3453.
3. Paris Bistro & Jazz Café
Lots of raw oysters, an authentic Parisian bistro menu and live, sultry sounds make for the perfect night out before the perfect night in. And with the (affordable!) rooms at the recently renovated Chestnut Hill Hotel right next door, you might not have to go far. Chestnut Hill, 215-242-6200.
