Now Open


Philadelphia’s “Summer of the Beer Garden“ continues with the opening of a brand-new outdoor space just steps from Independence Mall.


Independence Beer Garden (IBG) is a 20,000-square-foot outdoor retreat overlooking the Liberty Bell Center and Independence National Historical Park. Helmed by restaurateur Michael Schulson of Sampan in Midtown Village and designed by Groundswell Design Group, responsible for the incredible Spruce Street Harbor Park, IBG is sure to be a popular summer destination.

Wrapping 360-degrees around the Rohm & Hass Building, IBG has room for more than 300 guests with nearly half a dozen seating areas. The outdoor space lets you lounge in a rock garden on a large granite boulder, cozy up in a colorful Adirondack chair or grab a picnic table. Air-conditioned private seating areas, created from repurposed shipping containers, are also available.

Other notable features include lush greenery, a 10-foot projection television under cover, ping pong and table-top Jenga.
