Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time for those holiday pop-up bars to sprout up. The first of which is Jingled Up, and it's open now downtown at 711 Main St, at the former BirdDog Saint spot.
Jingled Up is the latest pop-up from Plethora/Four44 Hospitality Group, which last year hosted Santa's Tavern at Porch Swing Pub. It's being touted as an experience for all ages with kid-friendly fare, like cookie decorating and pictures with Santa on Sundays, while adult activities, like karaoke and trivia, will be offered at night. Look for whimsical cocktails, like the fruity Sleigh Ride with edible glitter and snowflakes.
"Jingled Up is going to be a place where Houstonians can create memorable experiences and enjoy all things Christmas—from the décor to the food and drinks," Plethora/Four44 Hospitality Group owner Asha Holloway said in a release. "We hope to provide a spot where family and friends can gather to celebrate the season."
Holloway is addressing Covid-19 regulations by allowing in 60 percent of regular capacity at a time. Plus, temperatures are taken upon entering the pop-up; sanitizing stations are placed about the space; masks are required for entry and when walking around; and pictures with Santa are socially distant.
A small food menu at Jingled Up includes items like red and green chips, cinnamon pretzels, and green eggs and ham.
Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for children ages 5–14. Kids aren't allowed past 5 p.m. daily. It's open from 11 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Sunday–Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday–Saturday.
