Bok Bar Returns with New Chef Residency Series
Starting April 14th, the notorious rooftop spot returns for 29 weeks with more than 120 events planned as well as a new chef residency series.
Guess who’s officially renewed for another season in South Philly?
They’re set to run for 29 weeks with more than 120 events planned as well as a new chef residency series. Bok Bar says the space is mostly doing away with seated-service reservations this year, so spots are primarily saved for walk-ins. They’re also foregoing weekly pop-ups in favor of monthly chef partnerships and menu takeovers, peppered with drag brunches by Drag Mafia, drunken drawing classes, trivia nights, rooftop yoga, DJ sets, and monthly sustainability conversations.

The partnerships this year include everyone from a collaboration between Poi Dog and Frizzwit to a Kalaya takeover in June, and an August series from Everybody Eats — a collective of Black chefs and activists working to ensure food security for all. Things are kicking off this April with Samar Lazzari of Stoa Takeaway. Lazzari will be in the driver’s seat from opening day until May 1st, serving a vegetarian-leaning menu inspired by the Arab American diaspora. See the menu here.
After its opening on Thursday, April 14th, Bok Bar will be up and running Wednesday through Sunday from now until October.
