A holiday pop-up bar opens tonight in the East Village, with bartenders from Estela and Café Altro Paradiso slinging drinks.
The decor is festive as hell, with an outdoor mural (pictured above) by graffiti artist Paul Nassar, and a convincing family living room vibe (pictured below) complete with fireplaces, stockings, a decked out tree, stockings... you get the idea. The music will match the decor, except for weekends after 10 when they'll switch to an open-format DJ from 10pm-4am.
Drinks-wise, expect a damn good eggnog, mulled wine with brandy, absinthe cocktails and more.
Through Jan 1, Donner & Blitzen's Reindeer Lounge, 197 East 3rd St (between Ave A and Ave B)
