Philadelphia, PA - I was delighted to be invited to the media event and Grand Opening of the Uptown Beer Garden located in the Courtyard of the BNY Mellon Building at 1735 JFK Blvd for their 5th season.
Uptown Beer Garden Grand Opening Review
The beer garden is open six days a week, Monday and Tuesday, and the kitchen opens at 5:00PM to 10:00PM Wednesday through Saturday, the kitchen will be open from Noon until 2:00PM and both the bar and kitchen will be open from, 2:00PM till Midnight.
Director of Operations and Beer Director Alex Bokulich has worked on the bar menu all winter to get it ready for the Grand Opening which included six exclusive beers designed by and only available at Uptown, including five new pours, to honor its the fifth year.
The bar menu is very extensive and includes a selection of cocktails, frozen cocktails, wine cocktails and margaritas, this year will also be their first-ever lunch service with new Executive Chef Nathan Kilbride, from Bru Craft and Wurst and Craft Concepts Group.
The first thing you notice was how comfortable the seating is, and I thought about how great it would be to hang out there on a beautiful, summer night..
The food offerings, especially the BBQ Pork was absolutely delicious, but what stood out to me, to the point, where I will be returning, on my own to get it, was their incredible burger, which was made to perfection and packed with flavor.
the Uptown Beer Garden is the perfect place for both food and drink, so make sure that you make it there this season!!!, for more information, follow @uptwnbeergarden on Twitter, like Uptown Beer Garden on Facebook or simply call BRU at 215-800-1079.
