The tree isn't the only thing getting lit this Christmas!
We love everything about Christmas in Colorado, and one thing we just can’t get enough of are the holiday-themed bars that help make our winter nights merry and bright.
Here are our top 4 picks for Christmas-themed pop-up bars to visit this season:

When: Through January 5
Where: Hangar at The Stanley, 2501 Dallas Street
Camp Christmas kicks off today, and we are here for it. We told you about this one a while back, but now we're so ready to get in on the holiday fun! More than a simple happy hour, Camp Christmas at the Hangar at Stanley Marketplace is a 10,000-square-foot fully immersive holiday experience celebrating the festive spirit of the season. Santa’s Bar and the Christmas Tiki Bar have drinks for moms and dads, and there will be plenty of cocoa and snacks for the kids. This is a non-secular look at the history of holiday celebrations, and it's brought to Denver by both the Denver Center for Performing Arts and Colorado-based artist Lonnie Hanzon.

When: Through December 29
Where: Miracle on Larmier Square: 1414 Larimer Street, Denver
Sippin' Santa: 5707 Olde Wadsworth Boulevard, Arvada
Miracle at Avanti Wolf Bar: 3200 Pecos Street, Denver
Miracle at Allusion Speakeasy: 323 North Tejon Street, Colorado Springs
Denver and Arvada are lucky enough to be the choice for three Miracle Bar pop-ups, with a fourth one down in Colorado Springs. The Miracle Christmas pop-up bar stole our hearts over the past few years and we love that they are back and ready to welcome in the season. With over-the-top holiday décor, Christmas songs, and plenty of booze, there's a lot to love about this one!
All three locations will open on Thanksgiving Eve, November 27, and will stay open through December 29.

Hosted by The Bluegrass Lounge, a giant insulated tent will turn the bar’s patio into an impressive Christmas pop-up. Celebrate the season with tunes, cheer, and elvish waitstaff. Christmas snacks and cookies will be available, along with Christmas-themed cocktails. Santa will stop by on Thursdays, and holiday crafts will take place on Tuesdays. Karaoke night is promised to be announced soon.

When: December 1 through January 31
Where: ViewHouse Ballpark, Denver
The pop-up bar will take place in a heated tent and will run for TWO months. That's a lot of White Claw! There will be drink specials, themed events, and more. Plus, the event is benefiting the Care4Colorado's Toy Drive for Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver.
The holiday season is always a stressful one and these pop-up bars are a fun way to let off some steam and show those visitors to Colorado a great night out.
We know there are bound to be more Christmas-themed pop-ups that will appear in Denver over the next few weeks, so share with us your favorite one in the comments below. We already have our eye set on the Gucci pop-up store in Cherry Creek, and can't wait to celebrate with a tasty holiday beverage from one of these festive establishments.
