Event Review: Christmas-Themed Bar Tinsel

Christmas-Themed Bar Tinsel Twinkles Into Its Third Year

If you’re a fan of the man in red, delicious drinks, and exuberant holiday cheer, make sure to stop by Tinsel this season to get your fix of all that glitters.  With more space than ever, Craft Concepts’ popular holiday bar is back with all the fixings for a fun and festive outing.  Take photos on Santa’s throne, enjoy a carefully crafted cocktail, and get in the holiday spirit.

Though its opening was delayed because of zoning issues, Tinsel will offer patrons access to its over-the-top Christmas decor through New Years Day, giving you plenty of time to check out its custom painted bar, Christmas present chandeliers, and curated holiday drink menu.  No matter what your favorite Christmas song is, you’re sure to hear it on Tinsel’s holiday playlist at least once to help you feel the cheer.


The main draw for Tinsel-goers, aside from excellent holiday photos, are the drinks.  Deck the Halls is a delicious offering, served with Manatawny gin, rosemary syrup, and cranberry juice, and the Ornament Shot, though it may look a bit strange, is a delicious jolt of vanilla vodka and coffee liqueur.  Holiday Sangria and traditional Eggnog help round out the cocktail offerings, while fan favorite Troegs Mad Elf and Sly Fox Christmas Ale are available for those looking for a festive beer instead.


The one thing to remember about Tinsel is that it is very, very popular.  The space, though the largest it has yet been in its third year, is still relatively small.  The bar can become quite packed very quickly.  If your plan is just to stop by for a drink or two and you don’t mind standing, then it’s not a problem.  But if you want to find a seat, it’s best to arrive as early as possible and stake out your territory, preferably with the help of a few friends.

Tinsel will open its doors at 5PM on December 4th and will remain open through the Christmas season.
