A favorite among Villanova University students, Ardmore Music Hall (formerly known as Brownies 23 East) is usually bereft of elbow room. Live music is performed on the first floor, where the immense bar dispenses spirits to the young crowd. If the downstairs gets too crowded, bar-hoppers can try their luck at the upstairs balcony where the beer-fueled chaos below can be observed. There are inexpensive appetizers and a full range of spirits and beer.
Sit on the sloping lawn or in the reserved boxes under the high shed awning. Pick up a drink or some food from the stalls by the back fence—everything from hot dogs to a full-course salmon dinner served by waiters. This outdoor stage is the summer home to the Philadelphia Orchestra, plus a schedule of jazz, rock, big band, the Philly Pops, opera, theatre, and dance. The acoustics can be unreliable and Philadelphia's erratic weather can be a problem, but you can sit in Fairmount Park, hear a good show, and look at the soft night lights of the downtown skyline.
