Nashville Christmas Pop Up Bars by Neighborhood

There are plenty of places to feel the holiday cheer around . Nashville this season. Specifically, stay warm with a spiked hot cocoa at some of Nashville’s best bars as they turn into Clark Griswold’s.

Let’s get clear on the definition of “Pop Up” Nashville:

Many call these “Christmas Pop Up Bars” but it doesn’t
really fit the description of “pop-up”. Pop Up means someone took an empty
building and turned into well-decorated Christmas room and set up a bar – and only open for a limited period of time (looking at you Miracle on 5th in Austin, TX).

ALL of the “pop up” Christmas bars in Nashville are not truly “Pop Up.” They are already bars, who merely just decorated for Christmas. Nonetheless, IT’S STILL REALLY FUN! I mean, who doesn’t want to get in the
holiday spirit? I recommend going on a bar crawl, but I don’t recommend on a Sunday afternoon like I did. The Noelle Hidden bar is closed on Sundays, and I totally missed that memo. Overall on Sunday it wasn’t crowded, but half the excitement
is the crowds and everyone together, some dressed in theme, spreading Christmas cheer. I want to go back out, so stay tuned by following me on Instagram to see the bars I check out next!

Christmas Themed Bars In Nashville by Neighborhood


Beercade HQ: Reindeer Games

Perfectly perched 1 block off Broadway, they’ve gone all out in their Christmas décor. Play free arcade games all night, watch sports on the giant projector, and drink and a eat off their special Holiday Cheer menu. A little too sugary of a drink menu, so I’d go with an ornament shot. Take a picture in the front with their perfect photo op in Santa’s sleigh.


Bobby HotelRooftop Igloos

Breaking news and launched this week, the Bobby Hotel has ROOFTOP IGLOOS. Snuggle up, get cozy, and stay a while sipping specialty drinks off their pop up menu. Highly advice reserving an igloo over a attempting a walk-in as first come, first served. These are new, unique, and limited quantities. Good luck my friends.

the best menu.

Another bar with amazing craft cocktails, including holiday
specials with Lucky Charms. If you’re over in East Nashville, be sure to pop in
for a photo op in their cozy fireplace room with some extra Christmas décor.

Wedgewood – Houston

Santa’s Pub

Okay – this one is very unique to Nashville and actually open year round. It’s always Christmas at this dive bar that’s cash only. Not really a place going extra or all out, but with a name like Santa’s Pub it made the list. Karaoke every night and cash only. Photos available on their Facebook page.
