During the month of October, the creators of Tinsel and Blume, Crafts Concept Group, brought a Halloween themed pop up bar called Nightmare Before Tinsel to Philly. The bar featured everything fun and awesome about Halloween like spooky decor and ghoulish-themed cocktails. Now with Christmas around the corner, Crafts Concept Group is bringing back its popular Christmas themed pop up bar in Philadelphia, Tinsel!
Tinsel has been in Philly for the past two Decembers, and is returning for another year giving all of the popularity shown from tourists and locals. As of last year, Tinsel has three Christmas-themed rooms, a 33-foot-long bar and chandeliers made of hundreds of Christmas presents and delicate ornaments-who knows what the bar will feature this year! Regardless of anything new Tinsel brings, you are bound to see an abundance of bright and colorful Christmas lights, presents, ornaments, wreaths, and more!
As for the drinks, expect a variety of beer, wine and holiday-themed cocktails. Some of the Winter Wonderland cocktails included a Holiday Sangria, Classic Eggnog, and more. Then there’s also warm cocktails such as Hot Chocolate (with a hint of Bacardi Coconut), Hot Apple Cider, and a Hot Toddy, just to mention some. Last year, one cocktail was served in an actual snow globe with edible snow!
The opening day for the Philadelphia Christmas bar is to be determined, but according to the group, it won’t be much longer until you can enjoy the bar and get into the Christmas spirit. Stay tuned and follow Tinsel on instagram for the latest information!
