It wouldn’t really be spring in Philly without spending time outdoors at Morgan’s Pier, and the city’s other waterfront hotspot, Liberty Point. Luckily, both venue’s opening dates are on the way. 

Liberty Point is first up with services set to begin this week on Thursday, April 11. The indoor/outdoor venue opened in the City of Brotherly Love in 2022, and what the space brings to the waterfront region of Philly is plenty of unparalleled views packaged in with multiple bars, a sampling of food and drinks and even a small music stage. 

“I’m thrilled that Liberty Point is opening for our third season. The Philadelphia Waterfront is getting a major makeover with a new waterfront park being built over 95. It’s rare to find places in the city where you can get a good view of everything, but Liberty Point’s outdoor decks on the Delaware River are the perfect spot to do just that,” said FCM Hospitality owner, Avram Hornik.

“Standing there, you can’t help but think about how important the river has been to the history of Philly, from its early days to its growth into the city it is today.” 

Food-wise, Liberty Point will be returning this year with lunch, dinner and catering options (for private events.) Highlights include the tuna tartar (poke style), garlic butter soft pretzel nuggets, fried shrimp roll, Baja fish tacos, bacon-wrapped shrimp, whipped ricotta, and much more. Drink-wise, Philadelphians can pair their fare with an extensive selection of craft beers, draught cocktails, specialty cocktails, and draught shooters. 

Entertainment-wise, Liberty Point has plenty of programming to keep you busy all spring and summer long, starting with their event, the “El Movi Miento Cinco de Mayo” festival presented by Wooder Ice, on Sunday, May 5. A full list of local DJ’s and bands playing at the venue for the sunnier seasons beyond that date is available online as well. 

As for Morgan’s Pier, which also calls the Delaware River Waterfront home, Philadelphians can find big views of the river and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge while sipping some cocktails beginning next week, on Thursday, April 18.

As a release notes, the menu features backyard barbecue classics such as burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, and other “easy-eating” items. Some early standouts include homemade brisket empanadas, fried ribs, a Cubano sandwich, a selection of flatbreads (think buffalo chicken, prosciutto & burrata, Margherita and more), a warm milk chocolate brownie and more.

“For Twelve Springs, the hints of warmth have signaled Morgan’s Pier’s reopening—the joy of being outside and together with friends. I’m thrilled to welcome back our staff and regulars,” says Hornik. “In the off-season, I miss the surprise on first-time guests’ faces as they see our urban hideaway.”

Drinks-wise, Morgan’s Pier is still offering a full bar, along with their fan-favorite frozen drinks on top of the craft beer and signature cocktails they sling year after year. The venue also offers plenty of activities from the spring to fall season in Philly. From April to October, Morgan’s Pier has daily entertainment spanning live music, rotating DJs, Quizzo, Yappy Hours, and much more, the release notes. A full list of offerings can be found online.

And for those who have dogs, there’s an additional outdoor space from FCM Hospitality with Craft Hall’s Unleashed: Bark & Beer (901 N Delaware Ave.) located across the street from the main venue. The dog park and beer garden features 17 beers on tap, plus snacks (like the brisket sandwich served with jalapeño aioli and napa cabbage served on a brioche bun.)

With outdoor TVs on site, guests can additionally enjoy UFC fight nights and all of their favorite Philly sports games projected on their 60 square-foot LED video wall, and screens scattered about. While inside Craft Hall (humans only), Philadelphians can find a full menu of offerings from the kitchen and the bar, plus a pirate playground for kiddos. 

“Craft Hall is inspired by having raised three children and two dogs in Philadelphia. Today, families want to enjoy social time together, so we welcome the entire family- with two legs or four,” Hornik finished. “A game room for older kids, a playground for younger ones, and an outdoor dog park for the furry ones. With beer and sports, it’s like a dream come true for parents living in the city.”
