    The Eleanor: Miracle on Fifth Street

    The popular yuletide pop-up bar has returned to the Eleanor, and this year you can enjoy even more of it with extended hours (opening at 2pm daily, and at noon from Dec. 19-25). You've heard of "decking the halls," right? Check out all the holiday schmaltz just about dripping like liquid tinsel here, the whole place festooned like Christmas exploded in a somewhat artful manner. They've got an expanded menu of cocktails for you, too, including some specials – the SanTaRex, for instance, and a new Mistletoe shot – that are sure to knock the elf right off your shelf. If you know what we mean, wink-wink, nudge-nudge, mind the reindeer scat.

    TRACE: Holiday Igloo Bar

    Ah, it's because they do stuff like this that we love the W Hotel in general and that TRACE space in particular. This, in this case, is that guests can now snuggle up with furry blankets and sip specialty cocktails from the Krampus bar menu, all while staying cozy in their own private igloo (well, "igloo," anyway) surrounded by the holiday lights outdoors on TRACE's patio. Never mind searching for some northwest passage, we suggest, citizen explorer: just hie yourself Downtown for a comfort-focused, wannabe-wintery rendezvous.
    Through Dec. 30. Nightly, 4-11pm
