The pop-up first opened in 2019 and has been a popular spot every year.

The Thirsty Elf pop-up will be located on the Mezzanine (MM) Level of Fairmont Royal York, at the former York Station Bar. It will be open Thursday to Saturday from 5 PM to 10 PM.

In the meantime, check out the list of cocktails here and get ready for the joyous season.
