Philadelphia, PA - The Kimmel Center Cultural Campus is pleased to announce the return of “Balcony Bar @ the Kimmel”, in association with culinary partners at Garces Events. The pop-up space, located on the second-tier balcony of the Kimmel Center overlooking iconic Broad Street and City Hall, will be open on Wednesdays from 5-9 PM as part of the Center City Sips happy hour series, beginning June 5 and running through the summer. Admission is free. Center City Sips special pricing is available each week until 7 PM, with beer, wine, cocktails, and food from Garces Events.
Partnering with Philly-based designer Papertini, the Kimmel Center’s Tier 2 Balcony Lounge, outdoor Balcony, and downstairs Commonwealth Plaza spaces will be reinvented for Balcony Bar @ the Kimmel, integrating reimagined design elements to create several new, inviting spaces. Along with rotating DJ entertainment from DJ Royale (June), DJ Mike Nyce (July), and DJ Craig Dash (August), attendees can expect ticket giveaways, surprises, and more. Balcony Bar @ the Kimmel guests are welcome to enjoy free WiFi throughout the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts building.
“The return of Balcony Bar @ the Kimmel as part of Center City SIPS really is the kickoff of all things summer and fun in the city,” said Ed Cambron, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “Our Philadelphia neighbors are invited to join us each week for iconic views and delicious food & beverage options from our partners at Garces Events. Plus, this year, we’re excited to reveal reinvented spaces from Philly’s own Papertini – welcoming the neighborhood to hang with us all summer long.”
"Now in our third season, Balcony Bar @ the Kimmel is one of Philadelphia's best new summertime traditions,” said Chef Jose Garces. “Make city nights memorable with our menu of wallet-friendly sips and snacks, with the best view of the beautiful lights and bustle of the Avenue of the Arts."
