It’s a Christmas miracle — The Orbit Room, the Avondale dive bar, is hosting a Christmas pop-up called Believe, now through December 31. Decorations feature space-themed Christmas decorations including a space-traveling Santa and elves. The Orbit Room is closing on December 31 but is still offering up the space as a pop-up for the holidays. A New Year’s Eve party will cap off the bar’s 10-year run at 2959 N. California Avenue.
The pop-up features cocktails in fun glasses and themed drinks (there’s even a coffee one for Will Ferrell’s Elf called Cosmic Coffee Show). There are also hot cocktails, a spiked eggnog and a beer/shot combination courtesy of Marz brewing company.
Originally part of the Miracle holiday pop-up series, which counts bars across the county (including Logan Square’s Lost Lake) as participants, Orbit Room’s ownership of Jeff Donahue and Wade McElroy decided to split away. However, Lost Lake’s Paul McGee and Shelby Allison partnered with the Orbit Room’s crew. Check out the space and list of cocktails below to add a little Christmas cheer to your drink this holiday season.
Believe at The Orbit Room, 2958 N. California Avenue. Pop-up goes from November 24 through December 31.
