Philadelphia, PA - Let the good times roll. Craftsman Row Saloon, at 112 S. 8th Street, announces the opening of Philadelphia's only Mardi Gras Pop-up Bar Experience from Friday, February 3rd, through Fat Tuesday, on Tuesday, February 21st.
The sites, sounds, and tastes of The Big Easy come to Philly with a special limited-time pop-up - now celebrating its third year. The delicious over-the-top King of Bourbon Street Milkshake, shimmering gold, green, and purple King Cake Fries, and the Dirty Rice are back and joined with the debut of their Who Dat Chicken- king cake, fried chicken breast, honey butter, hot sauce, powdered sugar, and Masquerade Mac & Cheese- 4-cheese blend, cinnamon, brown and powdered sugar, toasted breadcrumbs, hot sauce drizzle.
The bar will pour the tasty and festive Bourbon Street-inspired specialty cocktails they are known for. Cocktails will boast all the NOLA feels and come with beads, souvenirs, and keepsakes. Thousands of glittery beads have replaced the award-winning Christmas pop-up decorations from December, feathers, masquerade masks, and other decors to transport you to Mardi Gras. Decor includes a giant gold, green, and purple masquerade mask above the dining room, plus mini vignettes paying homage to some of New Orleans' most famous streets and destinations.
The floor-to-ceiling transformation continues inside the dining room and outside in the Craftsman Row Saloon, illuminated with the colors of Mardi Gras on the entire building. For music, listen for a mix of Mardi Gras and New Orleans classics and staples, festive jazz, and even some Mummers' favorite tunes.
Craftsman Row Saloon Mardi Gras Pop-up Bar Experience opens this Friday and runs through Fat Tuesday. Hours for this Mardi Gras season are Tuesday Noon to 10:00 pm, Wednesday Noon to 11:00 pm (kitchen closes 10:00 pm), Thursday to Saturday Noon to 11:00 pm, and Sunday Noon to 10:00 pm (kitchen closes 9:00 pm).
