If you want to dance and party all night
Indulge in Moroccan belly dancing and drinks

Go for sushi and shameless karaoke
Karaoke is always a good idea, but a karaoke and Sushi party—genius! Sing your heart out all night at some of Philly’s coolest Karaoke Bars with private rooms. Fuji Mountain’s private room has karaoke and a full bar, and Yakitori Boy has multiple options for Karaoke.

If you want something health and wellness focused

If you’re going full luxury, try their new “luxe ritual,” which includes full body exfoliation, a body wrap, and an oil scalp treatment followed by a massage. If some of your party is more into a high-end facial or salon service, they can have make a hair appointment, or get a facial instead. After you’re all done, you can take a dip in the pool and unwind on the rooftop deck. The best part about a spa day?

From biking and hiking trails for the summer and skiing in the winter, there are so many things to do that are both healthy and fun.
