Parx Casino

Parx Casino will be offering one of the top outdoor destinations for fans to watch the Eagles fly come game time. The casino transformed its Liberty Bell Beer Garden from a closed indoor structure into an outdoor venue for prime kickoff viewing. The Beer Garden opened last week, and has been serving up menu items and drinks from the Casino’s popular Liberty Bell Gastropub which includes a rotating selection of all-American craft beers, wines and specialty cocktails. Parx’s Beer Garden is also ideal for those who are still feeling wary about crowds, the 7,600-square-foot space features socially distanced tables with plenty of room. Liberty Bell BG also features two patios with greenery, modern furniture and 10-foot long fire pits, and for game days there are two giant LED TV walls and even sports-betting kiosks for those who want to place a wager. Additionally, Parx Casino Sportsbook is also offering some primetime viewing for the game on the country’s first 155 foot TV screen which features dozens of seats and also 3 VIP areas.

The Center City destination certainly was a hotspot for Eagles fans who bled green every game day last season. Now, the venue located on Chestnut Street has both indoor and outdoor TV viewing options as well as a large selection of liquid libations from the bar and BBQ fare. Inside, Tradesman’s features four different spaces, two different levels, and multiple HD TV’s as well as a giant ten-foot media wall behind the main bar. Outside, the bar and eatery has expansive outdoor sidewalk seating with several TV’s lining their property during Eagles games on Chestnut and Juniper Street – plus Thursdays to Sundays they have a street closure shutting down Chestnut at Juniper to traffic. That area is dubbed the Juniper Gardens – where during Eagles games they have a massive ten foot tall inflatable screen to watch the games. The hotspot will also feature a few game day specials including $6 wings, $20 Founders Solid Gold Buckets (5 cans per bucket) and $5 Founders All Day IPA Draft.

Morgan’s Pier has always provided Philadelphians with an ideal location to enjoy some drinks and food outdoors, and now adding the Eagles into the mix sports fans can really rejoice.
