Here’s a look at what’s brewing inside the heated tent at 1700 Penn Ave. The three-weekend collaborative pop-up bar plans to be open until Dec 29.
Folks enjoying a walk through the Strip District can add a new (temporary) destination to their stroll.
Located in the parking lot at 1700 Penn Ave, a large, heated tent will act as a pop-up bar for the remainder of 2019.
Pennsylvania Libations x Helltown Brewing
The collaboration between Pennsylvania Libations and Helltown Brewing exists as a sort of extended sneak peek at what’s to come inside the adjacent building.
“We are working toward the grand opening of 1700 Penn Ave in spring 2020,” explains Christian Simmons, President and Owner of Pennsylvania Libations. “Where we are standing right now is actually the (future) parking lot for our beer and wine shop that’s under construction.”
