A bar experience worth drinking to, these winter wonderlands are at the top of every New Yorker’s nice list. This holiday season, get into the spirit (pun intended) with a Kringle-approved cocktail at New York City’s best 12 Christmas-themed bars.
If Santa ever took a Christmas vacation, he’d spend it at Sippin’ Santa’s Surf Shack, a tropical Christmas bar bound to heat up any winter night. The pop-up, which takes over East Village bar, Boilermaker, features nine naughtily named (but nice-tasting!) cocktails and four boilermakers, or a beer or cider plus shot combo. Expect mint chocolate shooters, boozy hot cocoa and eggnog, and plenty of “holiday lei” puns at this playful destination.
Any place that extends the lifespans of local rooftop bars makes the New Yorker’s nice list. This year, the Arlo SoHo Hotel is at the top (literally), thanks to its ski lodge in the sky complete with tented patios and an all-white food and drink menu featuring frozen white hot chocolate and coconut cake “snowballs.”
