There’s a cool adults-only pop-up taking place at the indoor/outdoor rooftop level at Chicken N Pickle. It’s called Snowbound: A Merry Ski Lodge and it’s one of the coolest Christmas-themed pop-ups I’ve seen in quite some time.
The staff at Chicken N Pickle completely transformed the upstairs area to a ski lodge theme with the most festive, merry decor paired with holiday concoctions to match.
Starting with the bar, you’ll find lights and Santa hats hung from the rafters with matching Santa hats placed on each chair.
Moving into the small banquet room is where you’ll find the ski lodge theme in its entirety. The room is divided into little sections for groups of 8-10.
This is what one section looks like that seats eight people.
The outdoor patio just might be warmer than inside. There was plenty of heating set up all around the patio to keep the cold away, and it overlooked the ice skating rink. All the fireside tables outside sat four per section.
I can’t stop there, though. Chicken N Pickle had a full menu of specialized “Lodge Cocktails” to fit the Christmas theme as well as beers and appetizers to choose from.
Pictured below from left to right were the Adjust Your Altitude, Ski Patrol and Fogged Goggles cocktails.
We also ordered a few appetizers: deviled eggs, pork belly & brussels, and the smoked salmon dip.
No lie, the pork belly & brussels were outstanding. There was a whiskey maple glaze over the top that kept us drooling for more.
As mentioned earlier, the ski lodge section is for adults only. Every section is available for rent at $5 a person. Their tables accommodate parties of 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 people, and the reservation fee covers your stay for up to two hours in Snowbound. Larger bookings can be made by contacting them directly.
Reservations can be made via their website here. We stopped by and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Upon walking in, we were immediately in love with the whole theme. Of course, we are biased because we love this time of year so much. The ambience just automatically put you in a festive mood. This would make for a super fun date night or outing with friends and family.
