The New River Beer Garden Is Opening at Race Street Pier for The Ghost Ship Philadelphia!
FCM Hospitality, the creators of Philadelphia’s Parks on Tap series, is partnering with Delaware River Waterfront Corporation to bring a new beer garden to Race Street Pier during DRWC’s Ghost Ship Philadelphia installation.
River Beer Garden at Race Street Pier will feature beer selections from exclusive beer partner Mainstay Independent Brewing Company, along with delicious fall-themed food options that include Lost Bread Co.’s famous pretzel shortbread cookies.
The festive outdoor space will also feature lighting, comfortable chairs, hammocks and seating for 100+ people. River Beer Garden at Race Street Pier will grand open this Friday, October 4 and remain open through Sunday, November 3, 2019. Hours will be Wednesdays to Fridays, from 5:00pm to 10:00pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from Noon to 10:00pm.
Ghost Ship Philadelphia is a 3D light and water-based hologragphic “ghost ship” that will make its North American debut as the kick-off to the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation’s newest initiative.
Ghost Ship Philadelphia is a 90ft, site-specific “ghost ship” that will appear under the Ben Franklin Bridge. The portside will be visible from Race Street Pier and the bow will be visible from Columbus Boulevard. The on-water project is accompanied by a self-guided audio tour featuring personal and river histories from local historians, artists, community activists, and archaeologists. This month-long installation is the North American premiere of a piece by European artists, Biangle Studio, commissioned and produced by DRWC, and curated by Ryan Strand Greenberg. This pilot installation combines international talent with local and regional experts to bring a new level of artistic programming to the waterfront.
Ghost Ship runs from October 4 to November 3, 2019. Viewing times for this free exhibition will be on Wednesdays through Sundays from 7:00pm to 10:00pm.
