Sweaters n’ Snowflakes, originally intended to be Toronto’s socially distanced food & wine bar pop-up experience, has now transitioned during lockdown to wondrous and brilliant outdoor “Holiday street food takeout market.
Located in the heart of downtown conveniently tucked away near the South West corner of Bathurst & Richmond, at Sweater n’ Snowflakes takeout visitors can stroll through a magical tunnel and enter the charm of this magical winter wonderland.
The exciting and festive pop-up is adorned with dozens of Scotch Pine trees, a Kilometre of garland, and thousands of lights including two light tunnels.
The pop-up holiday takeout experience also includes, a wood fire BBQ pit and wood fire oven offering holiday inspired pizzas, wok fried noodles, desserts, and soups as well as many vegetarian options.
Originally, the pre-lockdown version invited guests to “Enjoy a meal, wine tasting, or paint an ugly sweater cookie, among the trees to the smell of fire and fresh pine.”
Takeout guests can also capture a holiday selfie in a glittery illuminated tunnel, or by a retired ski lift, or perhaps a giant Christmas present.
Sweaters n’ Snowflakes updated safety rules include:
- Limited entry at once
- Maintain Social Distance
- All food/drinks prepared TO GO including alcohol.
- Mask Required for entry. Encourage guests to bring one, if not one may be provided.
@sweatersnsnowflakes as an event runs from December 10th – 27th.
Dogs are also welcome when owners come responsibly.
Guests can rest assured that the takeout pop-up is built for safety, efficiency, and a unique cosy holiday forest experience right in the heart of the city. Guest allowance, hours, and rules may change and are pending current provincial and city restrictions at the time.
Also, during lockdown, many slated features at the pop-up will be put on hold. There will be “no seating including dining, wine tastings, ugly sweater cookie painting, holiday brunch, or holiday dinners however, guests may book dates on the website Dec 21st onwards.”
Should lockdown be lifted on the 21st (although it isn’t looking likely), all aspects of the original popup would resume. Should it not, the holiday take out market will continue, and all money paid in reso will be refunded automatically.
Revised hours: Monday – Friday – 5pm – 9pm
Saturday/Sunday – 3pm – 9pm
