One of Austin’s most anticipated Christmas bars, Miracle on 5th, pops up at Eleanor during the winter season through December 28th. With three decked-out floors of wall-to-wall holiday decor, each bar sports a holly jolly theme and some of the cutest Christmas cocktails you can find.

No Austin holiday pop-up bars list is complete without a tiki Christmas party. Nickel City brings us Sippin’ Santa for its fourth year running. Whisk yourself away to somewhere warmer this holiday season and sip on themed cocktails in coconuts.

Kitty Cohen’s

This year’s Hanukkah pop-up theme at everyone’s favorite pool bar is Get Lit, which is the only call-to-action we need this winter season. Kitty Cohen’s is in holiday mode through December 30th, with a portion of proceeds for drink specials going to benefit Shalom Austin.

Lala’s Little Nugget

And of course, we could never forget the Christmas-themed bar that just can’t quit. Opened in 1972, Lala’s Little Nugget is a magical place where every day is Christmas! This cozy hole-in-the-wall serves up delicious cocktails and sports a couple of pool tables, so you can have more than enough fun watching the countdown to Christmas Day.
