I lived in Philly for 5 years during college, but not exactly sure what you are looking for. There are 3-4 areas where there are a good amount of bars, but they are all very different! I’ll give you general areas to search for, which all have plenty of bars around:

Old City/Front Street area– this is historic Philly, near Liberty Bell, Independence hall, etc. Very touristy, safe area. Plenty of bars on Market street and Chestnut St in between 5th St up to Front St. Some faves: Drinker’s Tavern, Lucy’s Hat Shop, Continental. There are a bunch of new ones that have popped up since I left as well.

Rittenhouse Square area– Also nice and touristy, plenty of restaurants and bars. Some faves of mine: Noche, Devil’s Alley, Drinker’s Pub, Continental Midtown, Rum Bar

South Street, between 9th and Front– A bit further off the tourist track, but still popular for bar hopping. Very close to the famous Pat’s and Gino’s cheesesteak places too which I recommend.

University City area– area surrounding UPenn’s and Drexel’s campus. Definitely on the college type of bars, but there are plenty there too.

Northern Liberties- I never went there for bars, but heard it was “up and coming”

Manayunk– technically a suburb, but supposed to have a good bard scene too.

Hope this helps!

As for a restaurant choice, if they like burgers definitely try Village Whiskey (http://villagewhiskey.com/) ! Amazing food, great drinks! I dont know if they take reservations, and its always packed on the weekends. But you never know. Its also centrally located to easily get to the center city bars (walking distance).
