After spreading plenty of holiday cheer in 2017, Lakewood’s The Christmas Corner Bar is back to provide some extra Christmas spirit—and some Christmas-themed spirits—at the end of 2018.
Around the Corner Saloon & Cafe officially reopened The Christmas Corner Bar Black Friday, kicking off more than a month of Christmas celebration until the seasonal pop-up establishment holds one final night of cheer this New Year’s Eve.
After the bar’s success during the last Christmas season, Owner and General Manager Ryan Krivosh made it a priority to up the ante in 2018. Improvements included vastly increasing the amount of lights and decorations, hosting Christmas karaoke during the majority of December, and partnering with Chrystal Tours to be a spirited way to start and end a holly jolly tour of holiday-themed stops in Cleveland.
“The goal is to make this year bigger and better,” Krivosh says. “We’ve tripled the number of lights and added more fun events throughout the month. As a result, we’ve had a bigger, better reaction than last year since we have even more Christmas cheer.”
In addition to providing a place for people to celebrate Christmas early, The Christmas Corner Bar also aims to spread joy to a few local charities. According to Krivosh, a percentage of The Christmas Corner Bar’s food and drink proceeds will be donated to a selection of area organizations, including City Dogs Cleveland, H20 (Help to Others), Tails from the City, Providence House, and Citizens Committee for the Lakewood Animal Shelter.
