The Olde Bar Christmas Eve Event

PHILADELPHIA - The Olde Bar is one of the most decorated and unique restaurant experiences in Philly for the holidays. The library nooks dining rooms have been given a festive makeover!  The Olde Bar, located at the former home of Philadelphia’s iconic Bookbinder’s Restaurant, is a celebrated space that once housed one of Philadelphia’s most famous seafood restaurants.

The dining room currently is a library-inspired dining room that pays homage to the Bookbinder family. Patrons are invited to enjoy The Olde Bar's favorite seafood and signature dishes while dining in the comfort of their own beautifully decorated, intimate library nook. Additionally, The Olde Bar has decorated retro library desks that feature classic emerald green reading lamps throwing off a vintage dose of nostalgia.

Throughout the nooks and dining, spaces are unique Christmas and holiday trees that take inspiration from the Bookbinger's connection and the library nooks with library and book-inspired magical trees and decorations. The decorated library nooks are available for reservation by calling or booking through Open Table. 

About the nooks: The Olde Bar features a brand new vibe that plays off of a nostalgic library filled with stacks of classic books, vintage lamps, colorful and quirky art, emerald jewel-toned reading lamps, a reading lounge, and even QR codes delivered to the table inside a book. On top of the private mini-dining rooms, the space also features old fashion-inspired library reading desks perfect for date night or happy hour bites for parties of two. All dining nooks and reading desks all come with a full view of the stunning low pressed-tin ceilings and the overhanging nautical caged (or beer garden-style) lights.

Featured dishes for that cold holiday and winter nights include hearty dishes, like Crab and Corn Chowder, Lobster Pot Pie, Jeff's Fried Chicken, and Crab Stuffed Lobster.
