The PHS Pop-Up Gardens expand to two locations this year — one in East Passyunk and another in Graduate Hospital.

The two gardens will turn underused lots into go-to spots for eating, drinking and hanging out alfresco.

The Graduate Hospital pop-up will revisit last year’s location — at 1438 South Street — with a new design, new beer and new food items. This year’s pop up will have a Bohemian flair and the food-and-drink offerings will include sandwiches, hot dogs, cheese plates and more from Dietz & Watson and brews from Barren Hill Brewery. The beer garden will also be pouring Garden Variety Wit by Barren Hill, a PHS pop-up garden exclusive beer. The Graduate Hospital location is even planning a special run of events for Philly Beer Week next week.

The East Passyunk pop-up garden will be located directly across from Pat’s and just down the street from Geno’s at 829 Wharton Street. The brand-new beer garden will be styled with a “hipster vibe” and food and drink will be curated by the team behind the nearby Cantina los Caballitos, Royal Tavern and Triangle Tavern.

The gardens benefit PHS-run programming in addition to City Harvest, a local organization that aims to bring healthy food to those in need.
