Here’s What’s New at Bok Bar This Summer
The South Philly rooftop spot reopens with falafel, yoga, Cambodian dance, and more on May 24th.
South Philly rooftop drinkery Bok Bar is reopening this Thursday, May 24th — and there’s a brand new menu and new programming, too.
The rooftop bar will serve casual, Middle Eastern street food — think doner kebab, fries dusted with za’atar, watermelon with labneh and sumac, and falafel— from chef Paul Garberson, who’s also opening Irwin’s, an upscale bar and restaurant on the eighth floor’s south terrace. The restaurant itself will serve an upscale yet approachable take on the cuisine, with straightforward classic cocktails at the bar. Bok is also getting a BBQ joint and a coffee shop on the ground floor.
Businesses and organizations headquartered in the Bok Building will provide programming at the bar, too: KG Strong will host sunset yoga classes on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month. And one Sunday per month, Art Sphere will teach family-friendly crafts, and Cambodian American Girls Empowering (CAGE) will offer free Khmer dance workshops.
Also new this summer: The bar will also donate 50 cents from each can of Founder’s Solid Gold Lager sold throughout the season to neighboring Southwark Elementary School — so drink up.
Bok Bar’s hours are 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 5 p.m. until 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Sunday. The season ends on September 28th.
