You’ve gone to pop-ups for lots of things, so you know how fun they can be – with lots of goodies, great photo ops and the chance to socialize in an amazing setting. This Christmas season, you can experience the joy of the pop-up in a whole new way – and it is Fa La La La La Awesome!
Now til the end of December all three W Atlanta Hotels are rounding out the season in grand fashion with each property offering holiday pop up bars stocked with amazing seasonal cocktails and themed holiday settings (think festive photo ops!). Expect to sip on your favorite cocktails but with a festive flair, nosh on savory bites, and give Santa’s littlest helpers some holiday cheer. Here’s the scoop on what you can expect at all three W Hotels around the ATL:
Decked Out Bar at W Atlanta-Buckhead
Buckhead’s fashion focused and high style bar is located inside the W Atlanta Buckhead. This already hip and high style hotel has a holiday makeover perfect for photos – and the pop-up bar inside Cook Hall is offering seasonal cocktails perfect for sipping and snapping. You can stop by for a gorgeous drink like the “Holiday Mojito” (a festive fave) or, get your juices flowing with “Jingle Juice” (a super cute cocktail complete with a cinnamon stick to stir). Sweeten your experience at Decked Out and purchase a teddy bear toy to help a child in need (and get a complimentary drink in return).
Decked Out bar will be open 6pm – Midnight Monday-Saturday throughout December.
ARRIVE: W Atlanta-Buckhead, 3377 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta
Elf’d Up Bar at W Atlanta-Midtown
If you like your Christmas a little more rowdy and a little less fancy, then you’ll want to hit Elf’d Up! In the W Atlanta-Midtown. Wear your ugliest sweater and try a “Mules are Better than Reindeer” (the holiday version of a Moscow Mule) or “Baby It’s Cold Outside” (think hot-toddy served in a cute Santa mug). Carnivores won’t want to miss the ironic but tasty Rudolph’s Red-Nosed Sliders (they’re made with venison, sorry Rudolph) and other savory offerings. Expect a rowdy good time and plenty of photo ops at this festive pop-up. That “buy a teddy bear/get a free drink” promo is in effect here, so drink up for a worthy cause.
Elf’d Up is open 6pm – 1am Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through December. The bar runs from Thursday to Saturday from 6 pm to 1 am until December 28.
ARRIVE: W Atlanta-Midtown, 188 14th St., Atlanta

Prefer your holiday with a touch of elegance and formal style? Head to the Slay Bar, popped up in the elegant Living Room at W Atlanta-Downtown. Perfect for showing off that special holiday dress and showcasing your style, you’ll enjoy festive classic cocktails and treats all night long.
