We’ve rounded up the best places to drink and dine with holiday flair

Christmas in New York: Does it get any better than that? Our favorite time of year is here in the Big Apple, and we are soaking up every second of every minute of every day until the ball drops on Jan. 1st at midnight. There are so many places around the city to enjoy the holidays, from seeing the tree in Rockefeller Center to seeing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular to walking a street on the Upper West Side at night while viewing the twinkling of Christmas lights. The city really is magical this time of year, and we’ve found a few favorite restaurants and bars that are also getting into the holiday spirit to share. Without further ado, here are our 3 top NYC Christmas-themed bars & restaurants of 2018.

Miracle on 9th St. 
649 E. 9th St., New York, NY 10009
If you’re looking for the most magical holiday bar you’ve ever seen, Miracle on 9th St. is nothing short of a holiday miracle, truly. Heralded as a “Christmas-themed pop-up,” it is decorated each holiday season to showcase a treasure chest of cheer and season vibes, from the decor to the cocktails to the atmosphere. The drinks are all seasonal, and we recommend trying more than one – obviously! – including the holiday favorites: Eggnog, and a “Snowball Old Fashioned.” Cheers to holiday cheers! 

The Nomad Hotel
1170 Broadway, New York, NY 10001
There is something about the Nomad dining room that leaves us feeling cozy and warm, making it the perfect spot to get into the season. Chef Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara are serving up a gorgeous seasonal menu, complimented by an atmosphere that makes it feel as if you were whisked away on our European holiday vacation. Enjoy the Nomad on your December “Staycation,” and don’t forget dessert.

281 3rd Ave., New York, NY 10010
Rolf’s is a German restaurant and bar with a flair for the holidays. It is one of the best places in the city to get into the holiday spirit, but be sure to book ahead for weekends and holidays. They go all-out for the Christmas décor, so be sure to dress up in something sparkly to celebrate the season.
