Let’s put it this way: If Union Transfer and Making Time had a baby, it’d look a lot like Morgan’s Pier. Backed by Union Transfer’s owners and David Pianka of Making Time, Morgan’s Pier is the newest addition to Philly’s music scene — put it on your hit list.
This summer, the venue will host DJ sets, as well as free Saturday night concerts (organized by UT’s talent coordinator’s) and “Open Air Dance Parties” every Sunday. The real gem of Morgan’s Pier though, is its summer BBQ-themed fare. The mouthwatering menu, designed by name, fields items like Fried Jersey Tomatoes, Snack Bacon, and even Vegan “Chorizo” Tacos — and everything is priced under $10. Add a hot dog stand, Philly’s own Little Baby Ice Cream, and an array of domestic craft beer bar and full liquor bar, and this place has something for everyone.
Morgan’s Pier’s soft opening is today, with a grand opening on Friday and a free open air concert on Saturday. We know where we’re spending our Memorial Day Weekend.
