Reserve 22 Restaurant and Bar is bursting with joy to announce their own holiday pop-up bar which debuted Tuesday, November 19 and will run through January 5, during the restaurant's regular business hours.
Patrons can expect to see thousands of holiday lights throughout the bar area, three Christmas trees, nutcrackers galore, hundreds of ornaments and bows, over 150 snowflakes and an "Instagramworthy elfie" photo area with a life size Buddy the Elf. Reserve 22 will also have their very own 'elf on the shelf' that will move daily for kids and adults alike to search for.
Reserve 22's chef Thomas Fota is preparing a holiday menu with dishes like Chicken Saltimbocca, Pasta Alla Fota and Short Rib Stew. Festive cocktails such as cranberry mules and spiked eggnog are also planned. Additionally, several caroling nights are lined up during the pop-up's run.
Reserve 22 is also hosting a Bows for Charity fundraiser which will offer patrons the opportunity to purchase gift wrapping bows for $1 which will be displayed on their "wall of bows" near the hostess stand. All proceeds will be split equally between the participating charities which include Young Life, Bridge Communities, People's Resource Center and the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry. Additionally, guests are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to be donated to the Chicago Chapter of Marine Toys for Tots.
Reservations are encouraged but not required. Reserve 22 is located at 485 Winchell Way in Glen Ellyn (at the Village Links Golf Course), and is closed on Mondays November through March. Visit Reserve 22's website or call 630-469-5550 to make reservations or for more details.
