Hello, fellow holiday enthusiasts. It’s Alex, here to tell you about your next spirited holiday stop.

What’s happening: Undercroft, the speakeasy-esque bar under The Preacher’s Son in Bentonville, is temporarily “Miracle on 2nd Street,” a pop-up holiday bar. I hear the outdoor patio at Preacher’s Son is also decked out.

The scene: The bar is complete with Christmas lights, decor, an upside-down Christmas tree and a seasonal drink menu.

What to order: This carol in a barrel cocktail shouldn’t work, but it does. It turns out tequila, coffee liqueur, spiced chocolate and bitters make for a sweet drink you’ll want to savor.

1 cool thing: Some of the novelty holiday cocktail mugs are for sale so you can drink out of a T-Rex wearing a Santa hat year-round. And some of the proceeds from certain mugs go to the James Beard’s Open for Good campaign, which aims to keep local restaurants open for business.

Details: The pop-up is open 4–11pm Tuesday through Saturday through New Year’s Eve.

Pro tip: Your best bet is to make a reservation if you want a table.
