The Only Hanukkah Pop-Up Bar in Chicago
The Only Hanukkah Pop-Up Bar in Chicago: All December Long at The Graystone Tavern in Wrigleyville
‘Tis the Season for endless Christmas Pop-Up bars and Chicago needs a Hannukah Miracle! The most unlikely of Macabees decided to solve this problem by turning the Graystone Tavern into the only Hanukah Pop-Up Bar in Chicago. Two non-Jewish mensches, Sam Stone and Kyle Bagley, have recognized Chicago is missing out on the miracle of Hanukkah and have pulled out all of the stops.
This year, we are celebrating Hanukah all December long at this Jewish oasis which will be decorated with over 8,000 blue and white lights, Jewish stars and dreidels, menorahs for days, a photo booth with Hanukkah props. Each night will feature different events like a Hanukkah Happy Hour Charity Benefit, Dreidel spinning tournament, Chinese and A Movie Night and other amazing suggestions from their Jewish friends.

Mitzvahs Beyond Menorahs
We wanted to participate in the Wrigleyville holiday pop-up scene but wanted to be different. Many of our Jewish friends were urging us to do a Hanukkah pop up and with many of the Wrigleyville bars focusing on Christmas, we thought there was a void to fill,” said owner Kyle Bagley.
Each night will feature different events like a Hanukkah Happy Hour Charity Benefit, Dreidel spinning tournament, Chinese and A Movie Night and more. The complete schedule of events and specials to come in the following weeks.
