Good news, people! You don’t have to participate in SantaCon in order to get festively tipsy this holiday season. Once again, some of our favorite watering holes have gotten North Pole makeovers just in time for all your ugly sweater #OOTDs. From light-strung winter wonderlands to pop-ups filled with delightfully tacky Christmas decor, click through for your ultimate guide to New York’s boozy holiday haunts. But be warned: too many reindeer games (and strong eggnog) might land you on Santa’s naughty list.
