11 Festive Finds for the Holiday Season in New York

The holidays are here! When everything smells of eggnog and is sprinkled with peppermint, when it is appropriate to stuff your loved ones with sweet treats to show them how much you care and love them, or to shamelessly indulge yourself! Here are our top picks of seasonally decked up spots New York that are serving.   

Bohemien Bar

Dressed with elves, garlands and Christmas trees, the real flex is having thematic cocktails in holiday themed glassware. Mezcal-spiked hot chocolate, a spiced cider margarita, a quince sour with gin, apple brandy, ginger and juniper smoke, and so much more.

From snowman tiered exploding candy cakes to layered reindeers and fluffy Christmas trees or cylindrical ornament cakes, welcome to the home of theatrical cakes from the ever colorful Flour Shop, forever.


The largest outdoor beer garden in Manhattan's Lower East Side! Winter cocktails are back including Boozy Black & White Hot Chocolate, German Mulled Wine and Spiked Eggnog! The Winter Wonderland is complete with a selfie-ready ornament wall, and hung holiday decorations to match the seasonal cocktails.

Rooftop views and outdoor dining done right, with a private penthouse for private parties too. Heat lamps, fleece blankets, and twinkling archways will make for a perfectly winter themed dining experience.
It's winter rooftop season in New York and the Barbie-ed out après ski set up at the Moxy Time Square has neon pink log walls, faux pink taxidermy, and more ski themed items to change the official Christmas color from red to pink. Plus, there's hot pink Instagrammable desserts and drinks to match! 

The fun rooftop in the Lower East Side has a Veuve Clicquot après-ski lodge in the sky, decorated with purple deer heads, digital fireplaces and a life-size snow globe. For bites, there are seasonal cocktails, and fondues of cheese and chocolate.


The Sky globe in theArt Deco-inspired cocktail bar looks like a snow globe with snowflake neon and sheepskin blankets, serving winter favorites and twisted holiday staples. Our favorite is the Paradox: cacao bean-infused vodka, banana-infused amaro, cold brew, Cointreau, cinnamon, vanilla and a cream float.

The Ragtrader & Bo Peep NYC
Once a garment factory, the spot has hanging ornaments, garlands, and a Christmas tree on the patio, with a speakeasy to match! The cocktails are inspired by vintage movies, with a holiday special called Holiday Affair with spiced cider, bourbon and milk punch. Naturally, it's inspired by a 1940s romantic movie.

The Skinny

A Naughty or Nice holiday pop-up with what one could say is over the top Christmas decor, a wall full of deer heads, and even the TV wrapped in gift wrap! With burlesque performances, anti holiday menu and a cocktail filled with women's underwear, this is one way to get on the naughty list! The cocktails are top notch, with fancy names like "Grandpa's Secret Stash", "Mrs. Claus' Pink Panties", and "Cousins Should Not Dance So Close". 

Where unicorns and mermaids unite! Taiyaki has its iconic fish shaped waffles with quirky and fun Japanese soft swerve flavors emerging from their lips. Seasonally, there will be a unicorn mini float for all the more fun. For Christmas, there are the star topped Christmas trees, in edible ice cream format. 

Voted New York's #1 two-toned cookies, the bakery that was established in 1946 is a cookie and treats institution. Get the holiday cookies in bright holiday colors!
