Sippin’ Santa Pop-up Bar @ Julep
Dec 5 – Dec 31 all-day
Sippin' Santa Pop-up Bar @ Julep | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

Regular Christmas-themed pop-up pubs are fine and all, but wouldn’t it be better with a Tiki twist? That’s the idea behind Sippin’ Santa at Julep, which opened Nov. 25 and runs through New Years Eve. Julep has been transformed with Polynesian decor and is serving cocktails developed by Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, a Tiki revivalist whose book Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log has a cult following among the Hawaiian shirt set. Among the drinks are the Kris Kringle Colada and the Christmas Eve Destruction, plus the shareable rum punch bowl served in a hot tub. The festive glassware is available for purchase if you’re working on your Zombie recipe at your home hutch.
