Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia's largest Center City beer garden is back again for 2019! This year, the opening is delayed as Craft Concepts Group has some MAJOR improvements and refurbishments in the works to make this the best year ever. In honor of the fifth anniversary, also look for FIVE special custom exclusive craft drafts Craft Concepts Group brewed with notable brewers - and you can only get them at Uptown! Uptown IPA will also return on the sixth draft line. Look for an opening around the second week of May.
Teddy Sourias and Craft Concepts Group (BRU Craft & Wurst, U-Bahn, Blume, Tradesman's, Tinsel) announce the return of Uptown Beer Garden to 1735 JFK Blvd. Kegs will start to pour for Uptown's fifth summer season with a weekend-long grand opening party in the heart of Center City around the second weekend of May. The 9,000 square foot outdoor pop-up garden will feature an all exclusive line-up of taps, including five exclusive beers and an exclusive cider brewed specially for Uptown guests, Uptown IPA on the sixth line, plus a new and expanded food menu, expanded bar service, and a new charity partner. Uptown also will also offer an extended season.
Uptown Beer Garden is nestled among the trees of the courtyard for the BNY Mellon Wealth Building. Look for more greening, more decor, more furniture in 2019 - with special surprises on the way. The 9,000 square foot urban oasis features slab communal tables, outdoor lighting, outdoor bars, rustic decor, craft cans and drafts, cocktails and sangria, a giant outdoor grill, and a menu of backyard BBQ and elevated pub favorites. Uptown will also offer access to adjacent private event space for larger (or more exclusive) parties in the inner atrium of the BNY Mellon Wealth Building. Based on the popularity of Uptown in 2018, look for additional events to be announced this year, and private events will have the opportunity to work with an expanded private event staff for private party planning in the current space and adjacent spaces.
Watch for 2019 full season details coming soon - including the official opening date. Watch for the opening date for Blume, also by CCG, in the next 2-3 days.
