‘Tis the season to get into the holiday spirits and there are some gifts you just can’t wrap, including these three pop-up bars happening around town this winter season.
🎄 Miracle on Market | Green Building, 732 E. Market St. | Now-Dec. 31
For 5 years, this national Christmas pop-up has been decking the halls at NuLu’s Green Building. With wrapping paper walls, the kitschy-est holiday decor + professionally developed holiday drinks served in themed glassware, this bar will have you gin-gling all the way to the North Pole. We like to start with a Snowball Old Fashioned and finish with a Nice or Naughty shot.
🎄 Christmas Vacation Bar | The Limbo, 411 W. Chestnut St. | Dec. 1
The Limbo tiki bar is unwrapping its very Griswold holiday tribute on Wed., Dec. 1 with cocktails like Eat My Rubber, a peppermint gin drink. While it’ not on the menu, we’d love to see Aunt Bethany’s green Jell-O shot.
🎄 Abominable Bar | Paristown, 731 Brent St. | Now-Jan. 2
This winter bar in a renovated camper is a new addition to the Fête de Noël Winter Holiday Festival in Christy’s Garden. Sip Kentucky hot cocoa — with or without the Woodford Reserve — and shop at the local vendor holiday market or try to escape the ghosts of Christmas past in the scrooge escape room. We would suggest hitting the outdoor ice skating rink before the bar.
