"Reindeer Games" Christmas Pop-Up Bar Returns to Headquarters Beercade this Holiday Season

Nashville’s favorite arcade bar will once again transform into a month-long experiential winter wonderland with holiday decorations, interactive installations, festive cocktails and more.

Nashville, Tenn. - November 2019 - Headquarters Beercade is thrilled to announce the return of Reindeer Games, an immersive holiday pop-up bar that will take over their space from November 22 through the 2020 New Year’s festivities. Located in the heart of SoBro at 114 2nd Ave South, Nashville’s biggest arcade bar will literally deck the halls, transforming into a winter wonderland featuring over-the-top decorations, interactive installations, holiday-inspired cocktails and much more.

Reindeer Games will completely take over the two-story, 6,500 square foot space turning traditional holiday decor turned on its head - every inch has been curated to create a mesmerizingly unique holiday experience. Over 5,000 lights, 12-foot wreaths and a 12-foot Santa Claus will dazzle patrons at HQ’s entrance, welcoming them in through a tunnel made from Christmas lights. Once inside, they can expect floor to ceiling decorations including walls adorned with 3D displays of Christmas trees, thousands of ornaments, 2,000 feet of twinkle lights illuminating the ceiling, 1,500 feet of garland draped across archways and life-size toy soldiers stationed throughout the space.

Reindeer Games will also feature many experiential photo-perfect moments, like side-by-side ‘Naughty’ and ‘Nice’ neon thrones, and a ‘Grandma Got Run over By a Reindeer’ flying sleigh. There will also be activations inspired by cult-favorite Christmas films including National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and more.
