Luckily, many Reinhold Residential residents have convenient access to some of the best beer gardens in Center City.
Below, we’ll highlight five of Center City’s favorite beer gardens that let you enjoy the warm weather, company of friends, and tasty beverages!
#1: Independence Beer Garden
Located in Philly’s historic district, just a short distance from The Chocolate Works and Waterfront II, Independence Beer Garden boasts a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere that’s perfect for creating new memories.
IBG (as the locals lovingly call it) offers plenty of outdoor seating, delicious snacks, salads, sandwiches and desserts, and 40 taps worth of craft beers from local area and domestic breweries.
As an added bonus, you can enjoy amazing views of the Liberty Bell and Independence National Historic Park while you relax and unwind.
#2: Spruce Street Harbor Park
Iconic summertime destinations in the city don’t get much better than Spruce Street Harbor Park!
In addition to its amazing waterfront view, boardwalk, floating gardens, and restaurants on barges, this park showcases one of the best beer gardens in the city. Enjoy a wide selection of regional and award-winning beers while you play a game or relax in the hammock lounge.
Traditionally open from early May to late September, Spruce Street Harbor Park is a must-visit attraction when you want to enjoy beach vibes without leaving the city!
#3: Uptown Beer Garden
Located in the courtyard of the Two Penn Center Building (just a short walk from Trinity Row and the Packard Motor Car Building), the Uptown Beer Garden is the place to be during the heat of summer!
Cool off with a selection of sensational craft beers. Indulge your taste buds in everything from boardwalk fries to tempting tacos to apple cider donuts that capture the essence of a summer evening at the local fair.
Helpful hint: If you’re looking for a more low-key evening out-and-about, be sure to call ahead or visit their social media pages to ensure they’re not hosting a special event.
#4: Bok Bar
Looking for a spot to socialize outside that offers a breathtaking view of the city?
If so, take a short Uber ride from The Crane to the Bok Bar.
Originally started as a pop-up, Bok Bar is now a seasonal sensation that invites Philly residents to enjoy a beer, cocktail, appetizers, entrees, or dessert in the splendor of a sunshiny day or cool evening.
Located on top of the historic Bok Building, this popular beer garden boasts stunning views of the Philadelphia skyline, making it the ideal spot for a romantic date or quality time spent with friends and family.
#5: PHS Pop-Up Garden
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) Garden is another popular destination that attracts Philadelphia craft beer connoisseurs.
