Ale & Arts Walking Adventure

The Ale and Arts Walking Adventure introduces guests to ten iconic Center City murals as well as a brief history of the bars involved. The tour takes place every Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. until September 9 and departs from a different location each week. As the Ale & Arts Walking Adventure tour ambles among famous Philadelphia bars such as McGillin’s Olde Ale House and Dirty Frank’s Bar, you’ll get to drink in the history and cultural significance of 10 distinctive murals, as well as the establishments where they are located. You’ll also get to drink in several locally brewed beers served throughout the fact-filled tour.

The Mural Arts Program was created to enlighten the public on the collaborative process of how murals transform public spaces and unite artists with the local community. Develop a new appreciation for public art and discover the history behind your favorite local bar with today’s side deal.
