PHS Pop Up Garden
Temporary outdoor escape in the city’s vacant spaces
Through October 2013
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s annual Pop Up Garden returns for its third year, transforming a forgotten outdoor area into a gorgeous, landscaped community space.
For 2013, the PHS is creating a literal beer garden on South Broad Street on the campus of the University of the Arts. The space, located across the street from the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, is a refreshing escape with lush landscaping and an on-site beer garden and restaurant.
The picnic-inspired menu, created by the Garces Group, features savory sandwiches including house smoked turkey with red onion marmalade, a South Philly hot dog and a chipotle short rib topped with a buttermilk fried onion. Lighter options include a grilled veggie sandwich, salads, fresh fruit and more. Don’t forget dessert, especially with incredible pies in a jar and ice cream sandwiches.
Quench your thirst with local craft beer from Philly favorites Victory Brewing Company, Yards Brewing Company and Philadelphia Brewing Company and non-alcoholic refreshments including iced coffee and tea, lemonade and cucumber mint water.
In addition to the serene surroundings and satisfying menu, visitors can expect occasional impromptu performances and exhibitions of music, dance, theater, sculpture, photography and other visual arts by both undergrad and graduate UArts Students.
But just like the leaves on the vibrant trees, the PHS Pop Up Garden will disappear in the fall.
Monday-Friday: 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Monday-Thursday: 5-10 p.m.
Friday-Saturday: 1-11 p.m.
Sunday: noon-10 p.m.
