Ale & Arts Walking Adventure

This summer the Mural Arts Program is offering the opportunity to look at the numerous murals that adorn many bars in Phildelphia (as well as some of the libations that adorn the backbar inside). These guided tours will happen every week throughout the summer, beginning Thursday, Memorial Day and ending on Labor Day, with each tour lasting from 5:30pm to 8:00pm.

On these walking tours, a guide will educate and explain about 10 iconic murals to tour guests. The guide will also relate the history of the bars involved, including Philadelphia’s oldest, McGillin’s Olde Ale House, the very cool graffiti bar at Sampan, and Philly favorite, The Field House.
