There can never be too many kitschy, holiday bar pop-ups, right? Add Little Spirit on North Highland in Inman Park to the growing list of bars making themselves over for the holidays. The petite cocktail haunt with a penchant for musical patron saints like David Bowie and Biggie Smalls is transforming into Little “Christmas” Spirit beginning November 26 through December 26.
Owner Randy Pechin says they’ve been planning the bar’s metamorphosis for quite some time. And, like those other seasonal bars popping up around town, Little Spirit plans to present its drinkers with a “kitschy ode” to the holiday season. A new cocktail menu is in the works for the month-long pop-up, as are a few new food items, and, of course, an explosion of seasonal decor will complete the bar’s festive transformation.
Atlanta hot dog purveyor Pigman Goods, now a permanent fixture on the food menu, will continue serving dogs topped with sauerkraut and kimchi. No word as to whether they plan to offer a holiday hot dog for the pop-up. Little Spirit’s $10 late-night, happy hour deal — a tallboy Tecate, hot dog, and a shot — is also staying put during the holidays.
If Little “Christmas” Spirit proves too crowded, take a quick stroll across the street to the cafe at Parish for Miracle on Highland. There’s also Miracle on Monroe at Tapa Tapa, Sippin’ Santa at Bon Ton, and Mele Kalikimaka at Decatur’s S.O.S Tiki Bar.
