👢 Boot scoot and boogie over to honkey tonk Donn's Depot for Christmas decor and live music.

🎄 Sit beneath Gibson Street Bar's towering Christmas tree.

🌺 Enjoy a tropical tiki Christmas at dive bar Nickel City.

🕎 Kitty Cohen's annual Hanukkah pop-up bar is here through Dec. 30. Nicole tried the Latke Punch and a Mezcal Mitzvah. Delicious.

🤫 The W Hotel transformed its "Secret Bar" into a silver winter wonderland, with a brand new fire and ice drink menu. Yes, there are flames and smoke involved.
