Citizens Bank Ballpark will get a new look

The Philadelphia Phillies and concessionaire Aramark are in the process of transforming a portion of Citizens Bank Ballpark into an open-air beer garden, a sports pub, a pizza restaurant and a Shake Shack.

The new area will be located right after entry to the stadium at the Third Base gate. In addition, the team is bringing to Citizens Bank Park a 19-foot high Liberty Bell replica that was once located atop Veterans Stadium, the franchise’s former home.

“We are always striving to make the Phillies fan experience the best in baseball,” said David Buck, the Phillies executive vice-president. “With this, we are excited to partner with Aramark to bring an outdoor beer garden to the ballpark, complete with an open-patio concept and backyard type feel. ”

In total the new area will span 11,500 square feet, seat 250 fans and feature 44 live TV screens.
