Sippin’ Santa’s Surf Shack at Lost Lake


Sippin’ Santa’s Surf Shack returns to Lost Lake this holiday season, from the day after Thanksgiving until New Year’s Eve, transforming the bar into a winter wonder-island. Following Lost Lake’s tradition of being a bit “over-the-top,” guests will enjoy a psychotically tropical X-mas explosion that will cover the bar with miles of pink tinsel, thousands of twinkling lights and hundreds of glittering snowflakes. Don’t fret – there will also be the glimmery, shimmery blue and sliver Star of Dave Cave!

Lost Lake will serve a full menu of holiday cocktails including returning favorites, such as: “…and a Parrot in a Palm Tree” (Reposado Tequila, Mezcal, Curaçao, Lost Lake Coconut Syrup, Lime) and “On Christmas Island” (Aged Demerara Rum, Jamaican Rum, Multi-Island Overproof Rum, Ginger, Passionfruit, Lemon, Don’s Spices #2).

The Lost Lake Gift Shop will also be filled with limited-edition holiday treats including: Santa-themed glassware by Cocktail Kingdom (various prices), signed bottles of Plantation O.F.T.D ($50), Lost Lake Multi-Island Plantation Rum 2015 ($80) and Paul McGee Private Barrel A.D Rattray Caroni 18 Year ($80), t-shirts ($20) and a variety of tropical ceramic mugs ($20).

For bar-goers looking to give back, Lost Lake’s pink Christmans tree will be the hub for guests to make a donation to the Chicago Period Project, an organization founded by former Lost Laker Ashley Novoa that’s dedicated to providing the less fortunate menstruating people of our city with the items they need to have healthy periods.

Sippin’ Santa’s Surf Shack will be open seven days a week, from 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. and until 3 a.m. on Saturdays. For more information, please visit.
