Calgary is getting an all out Christmas themed pop-up tiki-bar

What did you ask Santa to bring you this year? An extravagant Christmas themed pop-up tiki bar? Well, would you look at that, we asked for the same thing! And it looks like old St. Nicholas and Ricardos Hideaway had us on their nice list.

This November the 17th Avenue hotspot will completely transform into Calgary’s first-ever Sippin’ Santa paradise; An over-the-top, Christmas vacation, in-your-face, holiday wonderland.

“Alexa, play ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ by Mariah Carey.”

This outrageous pop-up will be filled wall to wall with Christmas decor. We’re talking twinkling lights, wrapping paper, garland, tinsel, trees, and bows. Jimminy Christmas! It’s about to get merry and bright.

Jingle your bells to a fiest-ive soundtrack of Christmas music while you sip on Kris Kringle Coladas every Sunday to Thursday from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm, and Fridays and Saturdays from 4:00 pm to 1:00 am.

Sippin’ Santa will be every holiday-heads dream, every grumpy grinch’s nightmare, and every rowdy Rudolph’s watering hole. Even though we wish it was all year round, it will only be operational until the end of December, with a ticketed New Years’ Eve party to wrap it all up on the 31st.

See you there, Calgary! We’ll be the one in your dads Tommy Bahama shirt.


Where: Ricardos Hideaway – 1530 5 St SW, Calgary,
When: November 28 – December 31
