East Passyunk’s community of restaurants is tight knit. And on Monday, September 18th, 20 chefs from spots on the strip are coming together for Up On The Roof, a combination feast and fundraiser at Bok Bar.

Monday’s event is all about celebrating the great food and community that thrives on East Passyunk while raising funds for the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District, whose work helps keep the strip exciting and inviting. Cocktails from Bok Bar will be served alongside favorite dishes and new creations from restaurants in the neighborhood.

The party goes from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., with tickets going for $40 per person (you can get yours here). Check out the full lineup of restaurants and featured dishes below.
