Apr 25, 2018 6 years ago

Spring has finally arrived in Philadelphia, which means increased activity at The Porch at 30th Street Station! In May we'll once again welcome two trucks a day for weekday lunchtime vending. Schmear It will continue operating each weekday morning from the pop-up in the center of The Porch. And on May 2nd, we're reopening the Pub at The Porch for after-work drinks on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays! See the full schedule below for food trucks and special events below.

Want to enjoy a drink in a beautiful outdoor setting? Head to The Porch at 30th and check out our beer garden, back for a second season! Before commuting home, enjoy beer and wine while relaxing in the beautifully landscaped public space. Bridgewater’s Pub, the venerable drinking and dining destination inside 30th Street Station, will again operate The Pub, serving beer and wine Wednesday through Friday from 4 pm to 8 pm. The Pub is located in the free-standing turquoise pop-up near the center of The Porch, where food trucks set up for weekday lunch service. 

Want to host your group at the Pub? We are now booking happy hour groups for Wednesday nights at The Pub at The Porch beginning May 2nd. Reserve your spot now! Group happy hours can enjoy drink discounts, reserved spaces, or percent donations for mission-based non-profits. The space is free to reserve.
