The Porch, located on the south side of 30th Street Station, is one of Philadelphia's premier public spaces. The Porch features lunch from rotating food trucks, pop-up performances, lush landscaping, outdoor drinks in warmer weather, and plenty of places to relax.

Check out who is vending at The Porch, and look out for announcements about upcoming performances. The schedule is below, but keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for changes and updates.

The Pub

The Pub at The Porch is University City’s next great spot to enjoy outdoor beverages. Returning in June of 2019, Bridgewater’s Pub, the venerable drinking and dining destination inside 30th Street Station, will operate The Pub, serving beer and wine Wednesday through Friday from 4 pm to dark. The Pub will be located on the western end of The Porch, near the 30th and Market Street corner.

We are now booking happy hour groups for The Pub at The Porch beginning in June. Reserve your spot now! Group happy hours can enjoy drink discounts.  Please note that The Pub at The Porch will continue to be open to the public during your event.  Guests must be 21 or older to drink, and must stay within the designated area of The Pub.
