PHILADELPHIA, PA —  Spring has arrived in Philadelphia and one of the city’s top restaurant pop-up experiences is covered in blossoms, buds, and beautiful blooms. Craftsman Row Saloon, at 112 S. 8th Street, announced the launch of its first Blooming Garden Pop-Up Experience starting Tuesday, March 21st, through the end of the summer.

Craftsman Row Saloon comes fresh off their biggest Christmas Pop-up and Mardi Gras Pop–up experiences ever to transform the space from ceiling to floor and wall to wall with a floral-inspired hidden garden filled features lush greens, vibrant colors, pastel blooms, floral-inspired foods, themed cocktails, and yes, an over-the-top Strawberry Garden milkshake. Craftsman Row Saloon is open this spring and summer from Tuesday 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Wednesday 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Thursday 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Friday 12:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Saturday 12:00 pm to 11:00 pm, and Sunday 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Craftsman Row is known as the spot for the ultimate flavors, sights and sounds during their pop up and this is sure to please. The timing is perfect as spring weather moves in, the flower show moves out and the Cherry Blossoms are about to spring forward. Head out for a lovely day in the garden at Craftsman Row Saloon for a first time visual and palate-stimulating sensory experience.

Cocktails will boast all the floral feels and come with edible flowers and the best tastes of the garden.

“The Mardi Gras decorations from February have been entirely replaced by thousands of flowers, boxwood, and some trees and vines compliment the feel and transport you to a blooming garden,” said Co-Owner George Tsiouris. “The floor-to-ceiling transformation continues both inside the dining room and outside. It is something we have wanted to do for a long time. The nice weather, the early spring buds across the city and the return of the Philadelphia Flower Show inside motivated us to pull the trigger and create our own special garden-themed experience. We can’t wait to host everyone for the spring and summer!”
