The Fairmont Royal York has opened a holiday pop-up bar “The Thirsty Elf“, serving Christmas themed cocktails from mixologist Rus Yessenov.
The cozy space (which has been used for popup bars in the past) is literally covered in holiday decor, and plays all your favorite Christmas songs non-stop.
We tried the Rum Rum Rudolph (Bacardi Spiced Rum, Barcardi Coconut Rum, Pineapple, Coconut). The Fuzzy Grinch (Aviation Gin, Sour Puss Apple, Kiwi, White Cranberry, Prosecco) which was super delicious, and the Gin-Gle All the Way (Aviation Gin, Sweet Vermouth, Winter Spices)
The pop-up is only here for a few more days, so make it a December to remember while you can!
