Visited this bar during the thanksgiving holiday and after being highly recommended, decided to check it out. Having a little buzz already I thought my friends and I could go dancing at Tavern. The dance floor was empty to our surprise but we were resolute to have fun anyway. One of my friends stands on the platform that people usually dance on and is chastised by the bartender. We stayed about another five minutes and decided to go, I was very disapointed but plan to go back.

Pros: Location

Cons: Didn't get a good vibe from the staff.

If you are in the mood for a gin & tonic and some crooning try the Tavern on Camac for the piano bar. It's a long standing neighborhood bar that gets at friendly crowd of regulars. Mostly gay, but everyone is welcome.

I like Tavern. I like the piano bar. Friendly, cozy and crowded. Not too many
lower degenerate types like the short older guy in a baseball cap
who rides around in a rented LIMO or something, and brings his
druggie hustler and straight boy toys to the bars.

TOC has been in existence *forever* but has in recent years become Philly gay nightlife's new "place to be." This place has a little something for everyone. Downstairs is a piano bar where everyone, young and old, really gets into the act. Upstairs is a bar with a nice-sized dance floor. I'm not quite sure why this is but the hottest guys gather at TOC. Sure, there are cute boys at the other places too...but TOC seems to attract the creme de la creme. (Strictly a physical judgment there: I'm not vouching for their personalities!) It can get a little crowded but you can trust me on this one: Unless your mom or a bitter ex-boyfriend shows up, you *will* have a good time.

Pros: Hot guys, great atmosphere, attracts lots of different "types"

Cons: Gets a little crowded

I and a few friends stopped for a drink on a Friday night; we generally had a great time dancing while most of the staff members were respectful, however there was one female bartender on the 2nd floor that was obnoxious and rude. Basically, she lacked appropriate communication skills with the patrons. Maybe she was having a bad day, but from her response when I stated to her that she displayed inappropriate customer service gave me an indication she had problems in the past.

With all said, I would give this establishment another opportunity although I would avoid the crew cut female bartender.

Pros: Music was great

Cons: Parking is difficult

The musicians in this place are by far the best collection of entertainers i have seen in a venue of its type, including in New York. I would venture to say that the atmosphere is electric at times, and the music is not only the normal fare of Broadway and classics, but almost any other kind of music you could want to hear. Check this place out, is truly fantastic.

Outstanding music, friendly clientele, congenial staff. Enlightened, diverse and cultured folks frequent the place and it is not uncommon to find a few joining together to recite entire Broadway play musicals. Pat Robertson would not feel at home here...
