Another Inman Park Bar Is Getting Into the Holiday Pop-Up Spirit

Little Spirit adds itself to the growing list of Atlanta’s kitschy, holiday bar pop-ups

Little Spirit
Beth McKibben is the editor and staff reporter for Eater Atlanta and has been covering food and cocktails locally and regionally for 12 years.

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.

Take a look at the cocktail menu:

Momma Claus’ Poinsedatives
Gin, Cranberry Sauce, Cava, Bitters, Rosemary

It’s Made Out of Cookies
Biscotti infused rum, Cocchi Americano, banana liqueur, egg white, bitters

Atlanta hot dog purveyor Pigman Goods, now a permanent fixture on the food menu, will continue serving dogs topped with sauerkraut and kimchi. Little Spirit’s $10 late-night, happy hour deal — a tallboy Tecate, hot dog, and a shot — is also staying put during the holidays.
