In The Land, we take our holidays seriously. You’ll see bright light displays, ginormous decorated trees and joyful holiday decor just about everywhere you go. And no, we don’t stop there. This is the time of year when Christmas-themed bars pop up left and right as magically as Santa sliding down a chimney. Get in the holiday spirit with a holiday spirit (or two) at one of these fine, festive merrymaking establishments.
It’s no secret that Clevelanders love The Flats. Who wouldn’t want to drink and be merry right near the water? This season, you can do just that at Xmas Bar, located on the Flats East Bank. Enjoy Christmas-themed cocktails and food any day of the week, leaving you zero excuses to be anything less than jolly this season.
Popular local watering hole Around The Corner transforms into The Christmas Corner Bar in Lakewood every holiday season. Come for the Christmas cocktails, but stay for the Christmas Karaoke at this festive neighborhood eatery where everything you see looks a lot like Christmas.
This pop-up concept originated in New York City and has made its way across the country to set up right here in The Land. If you’re looking for ridiculously delicious and well-crafted Christmas cocktails, this is your place. What’s Christmas without a Christmapolitan or a Holiday Spiked Chai? If you’re feeling extra festive, you have your pick between the Nice Shot and the Naughty Shot, but don’t forget: Santa is watching.
After 30 years of Christmas Ale, what better way to celebrate than at this cozy secret cellar bar at Great Lakes Brewing Co.? If you’re a true Ale fanatic (and really, who isn’t?), treat yourself to a Christmas Ale Sandwich along with a Ralphie’s Revenge (a Christmas ale with a shot of Fireball…whoa). May Santa’s sleigh guide you, my friend.
This Tower City eatery is joining the pop-up festivities with specialty holiday-themed beverages – both alcoholic and non. With the grand holiday décor throughout Tower City and the new Skylight Park, Grinches and Scrooges alike will have no choice but to feel all that holiday spirit. The best part? After you’ve enjoyed a drink or two, you can pick up all those last-minute holiday gifts and stocking stuffers and finish off that yuletide to-do list.
Located on the third floor of JACK Casino is the holly jolly holiday bar we all needed this season.
