2 questions about venues and shuttle transportation!!!

hi ladies!  

i'm hoping someone can lend me some insight.  my fiance and i just looked at this venue called front & palmer yesterday--the space is perfect for us; unique, spacious, artsy.  only concern we both have is the location.  it's located in "new kensington" under the "El".  has anyone used this venue before?  it's kinda off the beaten path and could be considered a little dodgy.  

the other question is about shuttles/limos for us and guests.  if we went with this venue we would definitely need a couple shuttles--anyone know of a good company to go through with reasonable prices???

thanks for the help in advance!

    If you are both concerned with the location I would probably look else where.

    I thought this sounded familiar - someone on The Philly Nest board just recommended this place.  She had fantastic things to say about the food and the decor.  She also said they had nice parking for those guests that were driving.  Do you know anyone in the area you could doublecheck with about the dodgy part?

    Before we bought our house outside the city, we lived in Fishtown on the Northern Liberties/Fishtown border and while its not as gentrified a NoLibs its nothing to be nervous about. Althought, I am not familiar with the venue if it is not too far north of Girard Ave. I think you should be fine! Fishtown is a pretty artsy and up and coming area.

    We're using a big yellow school bus for our guest shuttle.  Try yellowbird bus...I think we got 8 hrs for less than $500.  We're also using Sterling for the BP transportation.  They had the best prices for a mini shuttle bus.
