Featuring festive cocktails, Instagrammable moments and live entertainment.
Back in 2019 River North’s Hubbard Inn underwent extensive renovations and reopened with a stunning new setup including the second floor “Blue Violet” mixology-driven bar named after the Illinois state flower.
Though Covid interfered with a Christmas pop-up last December, the lavish new lounge has launched several eye-catching transformations since it reopened including the celestial Secret Garden Pop-Up earlier this year. Now the popular River North bar is throwing another limited time shindig of equal splendor for just this month and it is situated across all three floors!
The Christmas Inn: Holidays on Hubbard Pop Up offers three different festive themes, mouth-watering Christmas cocktails, and a range of Instagrammable moments to get you in the holiday spirit. On the first floor, guests will find a classic magical Christmas, the second floor offers 60’s ‘Kitchmas’ vibes and the third floor has been decked out with an imaginative ‘Christmas apocalypse’ theme.
General admission starting at just $20 includes entry to The Christmas Inn, access to all 3 different floors, and 1 holiday cocktail of your choosing while a wide variety of delicious food and drink options are available for purchase separately. See the menu and drinks list here.
Though The Christmas Inn Pop-Up offers the perfect place for any kind of after-work drinks and Christmas shindigs, there are a variety of events taking place this month including weekend brunches and 3-course-dinners. Holiday trivia nights mean you and your most competitive chums can pit your wits against other quiz teams for prizes while enjoying the seasonal setup.
For those who want to really indulge in the festive cheer, you can unleash your inner creativity with gingerbread houses & ornament decorating workshops or interactive Christmas paint & sip sessions.
Hubbard Inn’s The Christmas Inn Pop-Up is open 4 pm-10 pm Mondays through Fridays and 11 am – 10 pm over the weekend. Meanwhile, holiday entertainment will take place from 7 pm – 10 pm each night of the week and brunches can be enjoyed between 11 am and 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
