Sippin' Suds in Silk City's Beer Garden

Drink beer in Silk City's back yard

When Mark Bee, the owner of the popular N. 3rd bar in Northern Liberties, bought the beloved Silk City Diner in 2006, he gave it a thorough (and badly needed) scrub down and reinvigorated both the diner side and the nightclub halves of the business. And promised to open a beer garden in an adjacent parking lot.

It's been a long time coming (about three years now) but Silk City's beer garden is finally expected to (metaphorically) open its doors this Memorial Day weekend. There are no guarantees, of course; when it comes to restaurant openings (and Mark Bee), dates are flexible,  but the outdoor drinking could start as early as Friday.

The transformed lot now has a rustic wall to block out the cars whizzing by on Spring Garden, an assortment of gargoyles and other whimsical and weird decor, plus a dedicated bar serving up the same respectable local beers as the rest of the establishment.
