Virginia Holiday Pop Up Bars

If you’re looking for something unique to do this holiday season I would recommend checking out a pop up bar near you!

This year more than ever before I have seen more holiday Pop Up Bars and experiences all over the state. So far I have experienced two of these holiday themed pop up bars near me. One at the Island Shrimp Company in Rockett’s Landing in Richmond, Virginia called Rum and Reindeer and another at Waterside in Norfolk, Virginia which is part of the Miracle Pop Ups going on around the country.

Miracle at Waterside Drive Pop Up Cocktail Bar

This Pop Up bar was packed with festive decor. They had a whole menu of speciality holiday themed drinks and small bites. I liked the photo opps that were offered too. During the experience we chose to prepay to building a gingerbread house. The gingerbread house was in a kit and had everything we needed to build it during our visit.

This Pop Up experience would make for the perfect girls night out or a date night. If you’re local to or visiting Virginia and want to go you’ll need reservations to check this out at Waterside in Norfolk, Virginia before it ends Jan 1. If you’re not local check online because there may be a Miracle Popup bar near you.

Reindeer and Rum Bar+ Igloo Experience Island Shrimp Co.

Rum and Reindeer Bar and Igloo Experience is located at Island Shrimp Co. Rockett’s Landing in Richmond, Virginia. During our experience we enjoyed tropical drinks with holiday themed names at the holiday decorated bar and then were led outside on the restaurant’s deck to our private igloo.

The igloo is reserved for two hours and seats four people. The igloo included a personal faux fireplace heater, blankets, a faux fur loveseat and a table. We enjoyed drinks and a delicious dinner with dessert followed by adult milk and cookies. All this while being cozy inside our igloo and looking at views of the illuminated Richmond, Virginia skyline. This experience was very unique and memorable!

Opinion of Pop Up Bars

Overall I think these themed pop up bar experiences are really cool. Both of the pop up bars I visited added to my celebration of the holidays and making new memories. For someone that loves taking pictures both of these locations offered plenty of photo opportunities too. If you’re looking for something unique to do this holiday season I would recommend checking out a pop up bar near you!
