The Skinny NYC bar and lounge, a lively after hours spot on the Lower East Side, celebrated its 5th Annual anti-holiday pop-up “Naughty or Nice” recently in New York City. The Skinny has been a neighborhood staple since 2004 and after a brief closure for renovations in 2012, the bar expanded and has been welcoming patrons ever since.
Their Anti Holiday party was filled with games, their culinary offerings, and drinks topped with capsules containing lingerie. The night was MC’d by the captivating Christopher Hardwick who kept the festivities going all night. You might catch him at next year’s event or at one of The Skinny’s other celebrations taking place throughout the year.
The bar introduced an assortment of fun Holiday “Coping Mechanism” Cocktails, like “Come Give Santa A Big Wet One” made with raspberry and blueberry vodka, ginger syrup, raspberry puree, and Prosecco. Some other must try drinks are “Jingle Juice” (Copalli Light Rum, Malibu Rum, Amaretto, Creme De Coconut, OJ, Pineapple Juice) and “Santa’s Lap is So Warm” (Hot cider with your choice of alcohol) which is a perfect winter drink. They also offer a selection of hearty and quite delicious food.
