Many of us spend Thanksgiving chowing down on turkey and
all the fixin’s—but the night before the big holiday, it’s all about the
partying! Thankfully, there are lots of hot spots right near your 1500 Locust
apartment where you can let loose, make memories and enjoy the sights and
sounds of Philly at the holidays. But if you want to play it a little calmer
this year, and wake up refreshed for your big meal, you can consider a more
low-key outing—all without skimping on the fun or the flavor.
To stay close to home for a night out with friends—where
you can actually hear one another talk!—take a trip over to Blume. (And when we
say close, we mean close—the restaurant and bar is literally just steps from
your 1500 Locust apartment!) The venue opened earlier this year, so if you
haven’t been yet, this is a great excuse to visit.
Blume is an Instagrammer’s dream—with every surface
covered in bright pinks and purple, as well as gorgeous floral displays that
will have you yearning for the warm weather. But there’s plenty to enjoy at
Blume in wintertime. Take the extensive beer list of 20 craft brews, many made
locally, as well as the collection of natural wines, with four varieties on
draft and many more available by the glass and bottle.
The food menu is a perfect fit for a Thanksgiving Eve
outing, with a large selection of shareables. The street food-inspired dishes
take many favorites and dress them up a bit (think the avocado sundae or
gruyere sticks!), serving as the ideal centerpiece for a gathering with old
friends and new.
Thanksgiving Eve is party central here in Philly but, if
you’re looking to spend your party catching up with loved ones while still
enjoying some outstanding dishes and drinks, a trip to Blume is just the way to
kick off your holiday festivities.
