Santa’s Hall at Trinity Groves
The Hall at Trinity Groves transforms into Santa’s Hall Dec. 2 through Dec. 31, where visitors will find the entire space decked out in joyful holiday décor. Imagine being inside a massive Christmas present. The walls are covered with wrapping paper, garlands wind their way around the room, lights are strewn across the ceiling, and giant candy canes and ornaments hang from above. Three festive trees and Santa’s oversize chair anchor the space.
The menu is just as jolly as the décor. Snack on four different cookies from Cake Bar, and sip on a full slate of seasonal drinks. There’s a You’re Naughty Cocktail and a Heat Miser, plus a Candy Stripetini with vanilla vodka and a Marie Brizard Chocolate topped with Peppermint and Whip Cream. The Grinch is made with raspberry vodka, Midori and Whoville gifts. The Frosty AF features gin, creme de violette, blue curaçao and Champagne,
Santa’s Hall will partner with a different charity each week to help bring some joy and assistance to those in need. The weekend of Dec. 2 is dedicated to the Genesis Women’s Shelter. Your $25 gift cards are welcomed, and in turn you may grab a gift under the tree. Upcoming initiatives include donations to Scottish Rite for Children (starts Dec. 9) along with a toy drive, food drive, women’s clothing drive and children’s clothing drive. Tis the season for giving, so Santa is asking each guest for a small token of kindness that can make a big impact this holiday season.
Located at 3011 Gulden Lane #109, Santa’s Hall is open Thursday and Friday from 4 p.m. to close, and Saturday and Sunday from 2 p.m. to close. The space is also available for private events Monday thru Wednesday in December.
