The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, in association with Garces, has a new pop-up bar on the second tier outdoor balcony of The Kimmel Center. The Balcony Bar is open for happy hour Wednesday through Friday until the end of September. While the bar will serve a packed like sardines with 500 plus people for Center City Sips Wednesdays from 5–7 pm, it will be open for expanded happy hours Wednesdays from 7–9 pm, and lesser attended Thursdays and have the place to yourself Fridays from 5–9 pm (weather permitting).
Enjoy free WiFi, music and those amazing views above Broad Street. It’s the perfect place to catch a buzz and snacks before seeing Broadway’s “Wicked” with their telltale green cocktails. Located in the heart of Center City, the Kimmel Center’s mission is to operate a world-class performing arts center that engages and serves a broad audience through diverse programming, arts education, and community outreach.
Opening on June 14, we kept fighting with mother nature and these crazy rainstorms but we finally made it! Introducing one of the best outdoor pop-up Happy Hours in Philly, drinks are a steal in an upscale setting as low as $3.
We were welcomed back and will be certainly coming back when dry July is over and we can enjoy all the delicious drinks, soak up the views and have a romantic night for two… on a chill Friday of course!
