'It's a Wonderful Life' Pop-Up Bar @ FitzGerald's Sidebar

The Roosevelt Room transforms FitzGerald's SideBar into Nick’s, an “It’s a Wonderful Life” themed pop-up bar, every Wednesday in December (6th, 13th, 20th and 27th). The Nick’s pop-up is the go to place for those who want to revel in holiday cheer, have a nostalgic experience, enjoy a craft cocktail and listen to top-notch jazz.

Nick’s is the bar that exists in the world that George Bailey doesn't exist in. It’s a juke joint atmosphere, where they “serve hard drinks… for men who want to get drunk fast.” Though the bartenders won’t be as surly as Nick, the Christmas time party atmosphere will be the same.

Nick’s will feature a specific cocktail menu inspired by the movie. The Roosevelt Room will offer 4-5 custom cocktails that reflect the movie. These cocktails range from a “flaming rum punch” to original creations like “Zu-Zu’s Petals.” The cocktails will be only available those specific Wednesdays in December.

Roosevelt Room’s transformation of the SideBar will include specific “It’s a Wonderful life” tropes. For example an old timey register that “Gives out wings” when you ring on it, cocktails named after characters, a group singing of Auld Lang Syne and a raffle at the end of the night conducted from a giant wicker basket. And a general heart-warming Christmas time cheer feeling.

At 7:30PM, there will be a showing of “It’s a Wonderful Life” on the SideBar’s big screen. As for music, the organizers will take a few liberties. Instead of the “barrel house piano,” featured in Nick’s with people dancing in the aisles, local jazz musicians will play classic Christmas songs in the barroom following the film.

This should be a great month-long celebration — hope you can join us!

The Roosevelt Room is a collaboration of three veteran Chicago (Berwyn) bartenders who are dedicated to upholding the classic bar experience with a modern twist. They have experience in creating pop-ups, custom cocktail menus, private parties, menu consulting, and much more throughout the Chicago area.
