The extravagant Dino’s Backstage & Celebrity Room next to the Keswick Theater in Glenside takes guests back in time with its ’40s supper club/cabaret feel, writes Michael Klein for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The $1.5 million project was two years in the making and is the work of Michael and Dino Kelly-Cataldi, who meshed their pasts with their passions.
There are several options for dinner and drinks, including the dining room, bar, outdoor lounge, and the lavish Celebrity Room. Its Italian-American menu has delicious choices prepared by Chef Scott Howlett, including the chicken Milanese at $24 and the 16-ounce Angus rib eye for $49.
Dino’s is open from 5 PM to midnight from Wednesday to Sunday with Wednesday featuring Paula Johns at 8 PM for a $15 cover.
Thursdays are open mic “cattle call” nights, when amateurs can bring their own sheets for the Tom Adams Trio to accompany them. Friday and Saturday are reserved for headliner performances.
On Sundays, even the owner, billed as Michael Richard Kelly-Cataldi, has his own show starting at 7 PM.
