Union Dallas near downtown will host 2 minty Christmas holiday bars
Christmas themed bars have emerged as a hot trend for 2020, and there’s a new one to add to the list: Called St. Henry Winter WonderlandIt’s a vacation pop-up bar located on the roof of Henry, the popular Fox Restaurant Concepts restaurant in the Union Dallas building at 2301 N. Akard St.
A release promises an environment full of bubbly Christmas decorations, winter-inspired window art installations, and cheerful cocktails and dishes.
St. Henry will be open on November 24th and will stay through the holidays through January 3, 2021. But boo, it’ll be closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Even if everyone stays home on vacation (and they do), what does a vacation bar do when it closes on vacation?
Next, because the food sounds really good.
St. Henry offers a special holiday-specific menu with sweet and savory canapes such as:
Deviled Crab Dip with garlic toast and charred lemon
Butternut squash toast with whipped ricotta, roasted onions and maple cider gastrique
Whole baked brie with red onion jam, various crackers and crostini
Warm croissant bread pudding with toasted pecan, caramel ice cream and whiskey raisin
I mean, the butternut squash toast alone is worth the trip.
The full menu can be found in the UpstairsLounge.
Festive winter cocktails are the main thing in such vacation bars, and St. Henry has a dozen, including:
Regent Street G & T with Tanqueray Gin, Clove, Pear, Lime, Pomegranate and Fever-Tree Indian Tonic
Junior & Mrs. Mint with Belvedere vodka with vanilla, white chocolate, cream and peppermint schnapps
Nog on The Rooftop with House Jameson “Xmas Whiskey”, whole egg, cream, nutmeg and cinnamon
St. Henry House “Xmas Whiskey” with Jameson Irish Whiskey, Madagascar vanilla pod, cinnamon and organic cane sugar
There are also homemade Christmas whiskey shots and 200 ml bottles for sale.
