Wine bars in nice hotels tend to be a little stuffy, and Panorama inside the Penn's View Hotel definitely follows suit. The space is huge, and it looks like the inside of a Main Line mansion, but the food is actually really good - especially the pasta. And while it doesn’t exactly scream “cheap weeknight dinner,” their Happy Hour actually makes it one. All of their appetizers are half off until 7pm every day, and if you get four or five of them, you can easily have a meal here for about $20. Also, their wine tastings are all $5 off, in case the thought of cheese without wine gives you a panic attack.
