8 amazing pop-up Christmas bars in NJ you need to visit
Just because the weather is turning bitter doesn’t mean we stop going out to enjoy a drink or two (or four) with some friends especially now during the holidays.
And if a bar or restaurant decorates for the holidays, it makes it that much more special and gets us into the season.
New Jersey is a very “themed” state mostly because we only get to experience a certain season for a few weeks at a time throughout the year.
We go into hibernation during the winter and stick to our local spots, we love a good rooftop for drinks in the spring, we like our beach bars in the summer, and a good winery or brewery during the fall.
But when it comes to the holidays, we love to experience just that. I want it to look like Christmas "threw up" in the bar when I go out. I love all of the decorations and the feel of it.
And some places even go as far as to have a themed menu for food and drinks.
The transformation is not only enjoyable but almost a necessity for customers. It’s the end of the year and something we all look forward to especially to celebrate the new year.
Whether it’s a company holiday party, a family get-together, or just a fun night out with friends, these are the bars/restaurants in the Garden State you need to visit in the next few weeks to get you in the holiday spirit.
