Upstairs, the 700 Club looks a lot like your high school friend’s parent’s basement: There’s no cover, there are couches and it’s dimly-lit and residential-looking. But your friend’s parents probably didn’t host dance nights three nights out of the week and stock 800 different bottles of beer for your drinking pleasure, did they? Downstairs, the long stretch of seating is usually reserved for “footy” on the TV—specifically when the Philadelphia Union soccer team is playing—but on dance nights, you can usually snag a seat to rest your limbs. In the summer, 700’s heavily windowed first floor is usually wide open, providing a fresh breeze for the revelers inside, packed like sardines.
