Spruce Street Harbor Park is one of the nicest-looking beer gardens in Philly. It’s covered in grass with hammocks and Adirondack chairs scattered around, there are trees for shade (very important when August rolls around), and it has a floating beer garden barge for when you don’t have anything productive to do later that night.
