The restaurant’s usual festivities took a break last year due to the pandemic, but this year they are back with even more decorations. The room is adorned with more than 5,000 feet of wreath, thousands of flashing lights, ornaments and wood trim.

The venue’s signature over-the-top milkshakes also got a holiday makeover. Diners can try the Ugly Sweater milkshake, made with eggnog, crushed gingerbread and holiday m & m’s, topped with a gingerbread sandwich, holiday marshmallows and rock candy.

Craftsman Row redesigned its restaurant and bar for the holiday season. The seasonal d├ęcor is set to last until January, when the restaurant will be transformed into a Mardi Gras pop-up bar.

Out of the kitchen is a new Christmas Diner burger, made with spicy fillings, cranberry sauce, sweet potato fries and more.

The restaurant’s seasonal cocktails come in jewel-colored ornaments. New additions include “100% That Grinch,” made with house coquito, rum and cinnamon, or “Elf Help Book” made with gin, elderflower, sparkling wine and lemons.

The pop-up will be open until at least January, when the square will be transformed into a Shrove Tuesday theme. The restaurant is open Wednesday to Thursday from noon to 21, Friday and Saturday noon to 22 and Sunday noon to 21

“We’re excited to bring the festive fun back to Jewelers’ Row with the Craftsman Row Saloon Christmas Pop-up,” said owner Vasiliki Tsiouris. “We took a break last year with the pandemic, but we’re back and bigger and brighter than ever with even more decorations, more decorations, more candles, more festive milkshakes, a new burger and even a Christmas Streetery to boot.”
