Outside, there are tables with seating for up to four guests, along with heat lamps and wind guards to keep people warm. The area is decorated with thousands of colorful twinkling lights.

Tables are first come, first served. Table service will be available for guests to order Christmas cocktails served in ornaments and snow globes, holiday cookies and dinner from Sueno next door. Both Tinsel and the neighboring Day of the Dead-themed restaurant are owned by Teddy Sourias of Craft Concepts Group.

No food or drink is allowed for consumption inside Tinsel, and masks are required at all times when ordering and picking up inside the bar. All food and drink will be packaged and sealed to go. 

The indoor space of the onetime jewelry shop is decorated in a Santa's workshop theme, along with unique holiday artwork. A festive soundtrack will play for guests.

In addition to cocktails served in souvenir vessels that guests can take home, Tinsel also will offer craft beer and standard cocktails to go. The popular Canned Good Cocktail is making a return, as well, with a portion of proceeds going to furloughed workers in the restaurant industry.

Tinsel will be open 4 to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Below is the pop-up's menu.
