The successful holiday-themed pop-up bar created by Hannah Withers and Ben Gitchel of Maxine’s Tap Room along with Richard Gathright and Cjay Crespo, is creating a new 21 and up Holidaze at 101 N. Block Avenue in the former Ozark Cleaners. Walton Arts Center’s Joy Pratt Markham Gallery, Sudduth Garden Room and Bradberry Amphitheater and Rose Garden will again host an indoor/outdoor Holidaze for all ages. 

Each location will be a unique experience with different cocktail menus. Some of the most popular elements from last year’s Holidaze will be back at Walton Arts Center including the domes, fire-pits, Letters to Santa and the annual Nog-Off.

New this year for Holidaze at Walton Arts Center will be a night for photos with Santa and Elf’s Workshops where children can make and take crafts. Events at Holidaze on Block will include a burlesque show and live music. Dates, times and details for all events will be available soon. 

Both Holidaze locations will open on Friday, Nov. 19, and in addition to open seating, both offer to-go drinks in accordance with Fayetteville’s Outdoor Refreshment Area. Grab a drink and take a walk to the square for Lights of the Ozarks or come in and experience a vintage holiday wonderland.

Holidaze at Walton Arts Center will be open 5 pm until 11 pm daily through Dec. 23, closing only on Nov. 25 for Thanksgiving Day. Parties of 15 or more can email for information on booking. Proceeds support Walton Arts Center’s education programming. For more details visit
