  • Enjoy the holiday pop-up bars in St. Louis this season.

Santa comes to town and this year he brings Christmas pop-up bars. To St. Louis bars have announced the pending holiday theme and the drink menus are gifts that keep on giving.

There will be no reindeer break at Three tres (1 S Broadway, 314-241-8439) but lots of booze will float up on the roof. Now open, the pop-up experience turns Three Sixty into a snow globe overlooking Busch Stadium and its famous view of the Arch. Before 22.00 there is no coverage fee. Guests can enjoy their drinks indoors or outdoors, and if you’re trying to enjoy your hot chocolate (yes, it’s a possibility!) By the fire, the terrace is the perfect place with its fireplaces. Food is also available at the bar.

Three Sixty’s holiday cocktails include the aforementioned spicy hot chocolate – aptly named “Hot for Santa” – which consists of vanilla vodka, hot chocolate, peppermint and marshmallows. Depending on where you fall on Santa’s list, you can sip on “Lovely elf” or “naughty elf”. The latter includes Montelobos mezcal, ginger and cranberries, while the former is composed of ginger, cranberries, ginger beer and 1220 vodka.

“Baby It’s Cold Out-Cider” is for fans of spiked cider; allspice, buffalo spurs, sweet vermouth, ginger ale and cider are all in the drink. Shots are also available if you’re looking for them: “Son of a Nutcracker” is amaretto, heavy cream, Frangelico and cinnamon, while “Down the Chimney” can help you if you plan on delivering presents all night with its blueberry Redbull, lemon and blueberry Smirnoff boiled together.

The bar will donate $ 1 for each cocktail sold and $ 5 for each gift box sold to St. Louis Family Gift Drive, a non-profit organization started by Wiggins’ mother. The organization provides gift cards, gifts and resources to families with developmentally retarded children in St. Louis. Louis.

The pop-up bar focuses on “nostalgia, fun and Christmas cheer,” according to Wiggins.
