Nashville’s Headquarters Beercade is launching Reindeer Games this December. It’s an immersive, pop-up bar that’s full of Christmas spirits.
The Christmas pop-up bar happens at our favorite arcade bar — in the heart of SoBro. The bar will deck their halls and transform into an experiential winter wonderland. They’ll have over-the-top decorations, interactive installations, specialty holiday-inspired cocktails and more.
Reindeer Games will take over the space with traditional holiday decor that’s got a twist. Guests can expect floor-to-ceiling decorations including walls adorned with 3D displays of Christmas trees and thousands of ornaments. They’ll also have 2,000 feet of twinkle lights illuminating the ceiling, 1,500 feet of garland on the archways, a life-size Santa’s sleigh and a four-person snow globe installation. You’ll see inspiration from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and more.
“Our goal with Headquarters Beercade has always been to create a lighthearted and spirited atmosphere where people can have a great time,” partner and owner of Headquarters Beercade, Brian Galati, explains. “This season, we decided to take it to the next level with Reindeer Games and offer a one-of-a-kind holiday experience in Nashville for locals and visitors to enjoy all month long.”
Decorations won’t be the only thing festive in the Beercade. The menu will also transform with holiday-themed dishes like Santa’s Sliders, Charlie Brown’s Christmas Queso and Rudolph’s Reindeer Snacks.
Beercade’s cocktail menu will also be in the holiday spirit. A Jack Skellington (pictured) will be on the menu which is cranberry infused gin and lime served with a gingerbread cookie. The Pumpkin Spice Hot Toddy has bourbon, honey, lemon and pumpkin spice and it’s served warm. There’s also a Red Ryder Rose, a White Christmas, The Naughty List and Santa’s Snack.
Reindeer Games will offer 30 days of events and discounts through December including Brew ‘n View holiday movie nights every Tuesday, Christmas-themed Savage Bingo every Wednesday, visits from Santa every Thursday and Ugly Sweater parties every Friday. As Christmas draws nearer, a Jingle Ball charity gala, Bad Santa costume party and Karaoke will also be on the schedule.
The Christmas pop-up bar officially opens Dec. 1 but they’ll have a launch party on Nov. 30. Tickets for that are available here for $30.
