You'll be Sleighed by This Nashville Pop-Up Bar

Headquarters Beercade will become Reindeer Games during the holiday season.

An offbeat bar filled with classic video games, clever craft cocktails and more craft beer than you can shake a swizzle stick at, Headquarters Beercade will take on a somewhat different persona leading up to the new year.

Pop-up bar Reindeer Games has taken over the space, turning the two-story establishment into a winter wonderland of over-the-top Christmas cheer. Setting the tone is a 12-foot Santa Claus welcoming patrons as they proceed through a tunnel of Christmas lights.

White Christmas at 'Reindeer Games'

Drinks during Reindeer Games will have their own takes on classic holiday cocktails, like the White Christmas, with vodka, mint and chocolate liquers, coconut cream served with a grasshopper cookie rim. Hungry drinkers might take solace in Santa's Snack, spiked chocolate milk with Nutella and candy cane-infused vodka delivered with six chocolate chip cookies. 

The decor includes more than 5,000 lights and thousands of ornaments, in addition to 1,500 feet of garland, providing the backdrop for events like the weekly ugly sweater contest and Sleigh it Saturday dance parties. Try the inventive photo set-ups and discover special menus daily.
