Bar 57, Philly's highest pop-up bar, is back through December

Josh Middleton

One Liberty Observation Deck is bringing back its popular pop-up watering hole, Bar 57, which, at 883 feet above street level, is being billed as the highest pop-up bar in Philadelphia. It debuts this Thursday night, September 21, from 6–9pm, and will return every month through December.

The actual bar at Bar 57 is manned by the folks behind Brü Craft & Wurst, Cinder and U-Bahn and will feature cocktails made with Kensington-based Federal Distilling’s Stateside Urbancraft Vodka, and light bites. There will also be live music setting the mood as you sip your drink and take in the insane 360-degree views of the city. For the kickoff bash this week, DJ Royale will be spinning tunes.

To get in, guests must purchase regular admission to One Liberty Observation Deck, which is discounted during Bar 57 at $14 at the door and $10 in advance. The space can accommodate 275 guests—and those tickets sell out fast—so ordering in advance is recommended. As of publish time, there are still tickets available for the September 21 launch. Those can be purchased here.

Upcoming dates for Bar 57 are October 19, November 16 and December 14.
