‘Joy on the Avenue’ Christmas pop-up bar opens in Del Ray

Joy on the Avenue is officially open to the public in Del Ray.

The Christmas-themed pop-up bar at 2312 Mount Vernon Avenue softly opened on Tuesday night, just in time for the long holiday weekend.

Owner Bill Blackburn said that the restaurant bar is the most festively decorated of its kind in Alexandria.

“It’s the same formula with the pop-up that we’ve followed the last two holiday seasons,” Blackburn said. “We have a very creative cocktail menu with some familiar favorites, some new creations this year and some nibbles to spread some holiday cheer.”

The menu (in the photo gallery above) includes concoctions like “We Forgot Kevin!” with Tito’s vodka, St. Germaine, cranberry juice, lemon, bitters, jalapeno honey, syrup and ginger beer.

It took nearly two weeks to get the annual pop-up ready, since Blackburn and staff had to pack away all of the Halloween decorations from the bar’s previous iteration as Nightmare on the Avenue.

Blackburn said that Joy on the Avenue will stay up until the first week in January, when it will wrap with the annual Festivus party.
