Craft Hall, with food, beer, and a playground for kids and adults, preps its opening


The inside of Craft Hall is vast with plenty of room for everyone!

The ambitious indoor beer garden Craft Hall, which has been ramping up operation since last fall on the former site of Yards Brewing Co. in Northern Liberties, will soft-open Thursday, March 7.

At 901 N. Delaware Ave., just north of Penn’s Landing, Avram Hornik and his crew at FCM Hospitality have a roomy 35,000 square feet into which they have set up Mainstay Independence Brewing Co., a bakery by Lost Bread Co., and a counter-service eatery called Craft Hall Kitchen. There are two bars, a music stage, and plenty of dining and communal space, including chairs and tables made from salvaged iron pieces and felled trees from Fairmount Park.
