After you bask in the beautiful display of lights, make your way to The Thirsty Elf for a delicious cocktail bar experience. Sipping on the most cheerful and festive cocktails as you get into the spirit of Christmas.

For those who experienced this pop-up when it first opened in 2019, you’re in for a throwback as it will revive similar décor this year.

As The Thirsty Elf is a pretty popular Toronto holiday tradition, you’ll want to be on top of their hours since they are not taking reservations this year – only walk-ins.

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 11 PM.
