We Can’t Wait for PHS’s Pop-Up Gardens to Open

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's verdant, boozy outdoor spaces return at the end of April.

Spring weather just gets screwier, but when the beer garden opening announcements start to drop, it’s a sign that warmth is finally on its way.

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s pop-up gardens will return to South Street and University City at the end of the month. This year, they’ll reopen the flagship site near 15th and South and bring back the garden at uCity Square, which debuted last year near 36th and Filbert Streets.

The South Street site will feature food and drink favorites from Royal Tavern, Khyber Pass Pub, Triangle Tavern, and Cantina Los Caballitos.

At the uCity beer garden, they’ll debut a new covered seating area and serve dishes from the Jose Pistola’s family of restaurants, along with craft beer and margaritas.

Both pop-up gardens will softly open on Thursday, April 26th, with grand opening festivities planned for Cinco de Mayo long weekend starting on Thursday, May 3rd.
