Where to Spend Thanksgiving Eve 

Many of us spend Thanksgiving chowing down on turkey and all the fixin’s—but the night before the big holiday, it’s all about the partying! Thankfully, there are lots of hot spots right near your Royal Athena apartment where you can let loose, make memories and enjoy the sights and sounds of Philly at the holidays. But if you want to play it a little calmer this year, and wake up refreshed for your big meal, you can consider a more low-key outing—all without skimping on the fun or the flavor.

To stay close to home for a night out with friends—where you can actually hear one another talk!—take a trip over to B2 Sushi. Less than a mile from your Royal Athena apartment, B2 Sushi opened just two years ago but has already made quite a name for itself in Bala Cynwyd and well beyond. If you haven’t been yet, Thanksgiving Eve is a perfect time to check it out!

Cozy booths, sleek table set-ups and the always popular sushi bar will provide the perfect backdrop to a night out with friends. B2 Sushi serves up modern Asian fusion, and its décor matches, with chic lighting, lacquered tables, Asian floral displays and a large mural of Buddha all combining for an eye-catching experience.

Even if you’re not into sushi, there’s plenty to dive into on the menu. Treat yourself with pan-seared chicken or filet mignon, or if you’re saving your appetite for the next day’s big meal, opt for the shareable-friendly dumplings or impressive collection of small plates. B2’s drink menu is just as expansive as its food selection, with dozens of sake choices, wines from around the world, locally brewed beers and creative cocktails that will be sure to start your party off on the right foot.

Thanksgiving Eve is party central here in Philly but, if you’re looking to spend your night catching up with loved ones while still enjoying some outstanding dishes and drinks, a trip to B2 Sushi is just the way to kick off your holiday festivities.
