Why This is Not a Bottomless Brunch with Bottomless Mimosas
The party brunch at Rec & Royal is not a bottomless brunch for compliance with Pennsylvania state laws. Other venues do advertise bottomless mimosas during brunch. However, to offer unlimited alcohol is not legal in Pennsylvania.
Rec & Royal’s Party Brunch Checklist:
To make your arrival and seating go faster review the checklist below and we can get you to your reservation faster, and make your experience more enjoyable.
Valid government-issued ID
At the time of the entry be prepared to present a valid government-issued ID.
A CREDIT (not Debit) Card for Pre-Authorization Upon Arrival
The pre-authorization amount is equal to the number of people in your party multiplied by the cost of the brunch package you choose plus taxes and fees. (Debit Cards are highly discouraged as your bank can hold the funds for up to 10 business days.
Every bank has a different policy regarding pre-authorizations but understand that those funds will not be available during that time and it is held by your bank, not ours.).
Pre-arrange a Safe Way Home
Rec & Royal is easily accessible by Uber, Lyft, taxi, Patco, Septa, and by car with a designated driver.
Bring Your Appetite
Did you know that Rec & Royal has a ridiculous Brunch Buffet? All of our items are locally sourced and freshly prepared. Check out a sampling of the Brunch menu here.
There no award for being the drunkest person at brunch. Champagne is made to be sipped not chugged, especially mimosas! Drink responsibly and remember a good time doesn’t mean getting carried out by your friends and having a horrible hangover the next day.
Rec & Royal brunch is about having a good time! Try to remember that Rec & Royal Brunch is an experience, not just a meal. You have the table the entire day so please be patient and enjoy yourselves. Just sit back and enjoy your favorite tunes and remember that brunch at Rec & Royal is a vibe, not just another meal!
Brunch Reservation & Payment Process
Step 1: Make Your Reservation
Once your reservation is made you will receive a confirmation email. Review the details of your reservation and make sure you read the brunch bible!
Step 2: Pay the Deposit
Please make every effort to arrive on time. We ask guests to arrive by the following times or your reservation will be released and your deposit will be forfeited:
- 11am seating will be released at 12:30pm
Your corresponding non-refundable deposit will be forfeited.
If you are running late, we ask you to please call to let us know. If we don’t hear from you we will release your table at the times above.
Since Rec & Royal Party Brunch is a unique experience with very limited seating, we want to make sure that we give every group the opportunity to experience the party.
Unfortunately, due to last minute cancellations and fluctuating group sizes, we are forced to take a small deposit to ensure accurate group sizes and reduce cancellations. Think of Rec & Royal Brunch like tickets to a concert. We want to give everyone the chance to enjoy the experience.
If you paid your deposit you can skip to Step #4
Step 3: Pre-Authorization hold
(Tables Without Deposit)
Upon check-in, a credit card and a valid government-issued ID is pre-authorized for the table reservation. The pre-authorization amount is calculated as follows:
Pre-Authorization Amount =
Number of People in your Party x Cost of the Brunch Package you choose (Plus taxes and fees)
Brunch reservations with parties of 6 or more are subject to a 18% auto gratuity added to the final bill. A service fee of 3% and sales tax (10% Philadelphia County liquor tax for alcoholic beverages and 8% for food) will be applied to all table reservations.
Debit Cards are highly discouraged as your bank will hold these funds for up to ten (10) business days. Your bank will NOT allow you access these funds during the pre-authorization hold. Every bank has their own policy regarding pre-authorizations and Rec & Royal is not in control of your bank’s policies.
Sometimes, the pre-authorization and closed check will appear as two separate charges. That means that you will not have access to the funds from the closed check and the pre-authorization until your bank releases the pre-authorization hold.
It may look as if you have been charged twice but the bank releases the hold on the initial preauthorization within 10 business days. Again, we have no control over your bank’s hold time on pre-authorizations. Save yourself a headache and use a credit card!
Step 4: Make Friends & Dance
Make friends with your neighbor and dance the day away. This isn’t grandma’s house! We encourage you to dance on our couches.
Step 5: Closing Out Your Bill
When you are ready to close out your check, you are able to pay the following way:
- The card on file
- Pay cash
- Split your check up to 2 ways (Venmo or Cash App your friends!)
**Parties of 6 or more can be subject to a 18% auto gratuity for your convenience. Brunch prices do not include taxes (10% for alcoholic beverages, 8% for food purchases) and 3% service charge.
