Uptown Beer Garden Hosts It’s Second Center City SIPS This Week, get there early.

Teddy Sourias of Fin McCool, Bru and Ubahn have struck gold with their latest concept – The Uptown Beer Garden located in the courtyard of the Mellon Bank Building on JFK Boulevard across from the Comcast Center.

 July 1, was it’s debut and it was definitely one of the hot spots on the Center City Sips circuit.

Sure people are drawn to it as they’re familiar with the quality service at Sourias’ other places, but it’s an outdoor space, with tables, bars and seating area surrounded by trees and sky.

The beer garden will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and
Thursdays; 4 p.m. to midnight on Wednesdays and 2 p.m. to midnight on
Fridays and Saturdays. It’s closed on Sundays,

 They serve food too.

 It’s not so crazy crowded on non-sips days.
 It’s like the holy spirit of al fresco bars SIPS in the area, with Marathon Grill at 1818 Market, then Uptown Beer Garden and the ever popular Comcast/CHOPS SIPS event across the street. Don’t forget reigning over all of them, 52 floors up in the Bell Atlantic Building is SIPS At Top of the Tower. Just go into the lobby, sign in with the guard and be whisked to the Top of the Tower. Grab your drink, go out on the terrace and check out the gorgeous skyline. 
(PS I’ve never seen a Sunoco gas station at 1735 Market St)

After SIPS is over, The Uptown Beer Garden is still going strong til Midnight.
