Bob and Barbara's Lounge, South Philly - Serving Cold Beer and Live Music since 1969

Recommended Posts

Any recommendations for a casual restaurant for a solo diner near Methodist Hospital? It's on South Broad Street in South Philly. Recommendations for a solo diner (e.g., eating at the bar) a plus.

Bob and Barbara's Lounge.

This place is for real -- even if last time I was there, an immaculately dressed family of French tourists came in, guidebook in hand, for the jazz.

OK, maybe not for dinner. But for after.

I also found my way to L'Angolo so I suggested that, warning about the lack of martinis.

Waitman, your mother must be very unlike mine! While I'd probably have fun at Bob & Barbara's (particularly at tonight's drag show), there is just no way my mother would.

Wait -- you never mentioned mom. But who doesn't love jazz classics played by a house band that's been in the house formaybe 20 years, cheap Blue Ribbons? I'm sure they wouldn't actually force her to smoke, just to fit in.

Bob and Barbara's....their Jack and PBR specials are deadly. One of the worst hangovers I've ever had. I prefer going on the nights when then have the jazz trio playing. SMOKIN'!!!!
