A pop up beer garden has brought life and vibrancy to what was once a vacant lot in the middle of the 300 block of S. Broad Street.
The garden, comprised of picnic tables and benches, employed creative ideas to take the empty space and turn it into a cozy neighborhood hang out. Brightly painted wood, welcoming cushions, and plants line every inch of the space.
Pop up garden patrons come to the space to socialize, play board games, and enjoy a space resembling a backyard in the middle of one of Philadelphia’s busiest streets.
The spot welcomes everyone from young professionals, to families and dogs. The busiest time at the garden begins around 5pm.
Dan Mcgullam, a busboy at the pop up garden and veteran Philadelphia bar staffer, says the space is refreshing to work in.
In addition to their tap, the pop up garden serves a variety of wholesome bar foods, such as fresh pretzels and pie in a jar.
The pop up garden has brought greenery back to an area of Philadelphia void of grass, and flowers and grass line the walls, floors, and tables.
In its short lifespan, the pop up garden has fostered a strong following of patrons who said they would continue visiting the garden as long as its doors stayed open.
In addition to their menu of beers, the pop up garden offers wine, kid friendly and adult friendly root beers, and frozen margaritas.
