Molly's in Soulard is ready to get you lit this holiday season.
For the first time, Molly's is celebrating the season with a holiday-themed pop-up bar, Lit. The team at Molly's will deck the halls of the space that was formerly home to 808 Maison, which closed its doors in September. The bar will open on Black Friday and will be open on weekends through mid-December.
The pop-up will offer a small food menu that is yet to be announced, but the real star will be the cocktail menu, known affectionately as the 12 Drinks of LITmas. The drink menu will include 10 holiday-themed drinks and two shots. Look out for the build-your-own boozy hot chocolate; guests can choose to add vanilla vodka, Irish cream or Rumchata to their hot drink and can then customize it to their liking with a selection of both fun and classic toppings and add-ins.
Emma Donohue, Molly's front-of-house manager and events coordinator, says that the drinks at some holiday pop-up bars can make it difficult to enjoy more than one, so they're trying to add a certain level of drinkability to their cocktail menu. But for those who don't want a holiday sipper, Lit will also offer a full bar.
"If you want to come in and get a Bud Light while your friend is drinking a chocolate Martini, that is an option," she says.
As is key with every pop-up bar, Lit's décor will surely make for the perfect holiday Instagram post. Expect plenty of wrapping paper, icicles and quotes and scenes from some of your favorite holiday films like "Elf" and "Christmas Vacation."
"It's gonna be awesome," says Addi Harmon, Molly's marketing and brand manager. "Eat, drink and be merry."
Guests at Lit must be over 21 and reservations should be made on Lit's website.
