      Don't quite get this atmosphere.
      This is one bar I don't frequent regular. I've been there with friends and did not like the atmosphere and the bartender's did not seem friendly. At the end of the day I don't understand the concept so it's not a place for me....

      Love at first sight
      I totally loved it here. My friend and I started our night out in Philly here and we didn't want to leave after we sat down. It was a low key night since it was Tuesday but the drinks were still flowing! Tuesdays just also happened to be Taco Tuesday and $2 Corona's and half off tequila (which is my favorite). ESPN was on multiple TV's which my friend was very excited about. The music was a perfect mix of top hits from the 90's, 00's and now. The people were very nice and the bartenders were the perfect eye candy. Can't wait to visit again next time I'm in Philly.

      Tabu is Not So Tabu.
      This bar/restaurant reminds me of Cheers. The buffalo chicken friends is big enough for two and taste great. It has a mixed crowd, with a restaurant downstars and an open space upstairs where I saw a karaoke show on a Thursday night. A must visit in Philadelphia.

      Just what I needed
      I am new to the city so I was very relieved to find an establishment that was so welcoming such as Tabu. The staff treated me like family from the time sat down at the bar. I continuously go about once a week for their karaoke Monday which always has an awesome crowd.

      If they have it on tap, try the Abita Purple Haze.
