A Beer Garden in the Sky Coming to Center City
At a height taller than the even the observation deck of Berlin’s famed TV tower, Fernsehturm Berlin, Skygarten will be one of the highest places in the world to hoist a pint or boot of German beer. And that’s what you’ll be doing on the 51st floor of 3 Logan Square (1717 Arch Street). Top of the Tower is teaming up with Brauhaus Schmitz to launch what they’re calling the “World’s Most Celestial Beer Garden.”
The 3,000 square foot indoor and outdoor space will curated by Doug Hager and his team at Brauhaus Schmitz. Hager will have four draft lines plus multiple German beers by the can and select local craft beers. Jeremy Nolen is working with the Top of the Tower’s culinary team to create a menu of bar bites and snacks.
Skygarten’s beverage program will be overseen by Jesse Cornell who recently joined Hager, Nolen and manager Michelle Curtis at Whetstone will be working together to come up with a cocktail program and wine-by-the-glass program.
The opening tap list is projected to be:
- Double Nickel Pilsner from Pennsauken, NJ’s Double Nickel Brewing Company
- Warsteiner Dunkel – Warstein, Germany
- Hofbrauhaus Sommerbier – from Munich, Germany
- Schöfferhoffer Grapefruit Weizen – Frankfurt, Germany
Skygarten is planning an early June opening. Stay tuned for more details.
