Center City Restaurants, Bars Bringing Holiday Cheer With Christmas In July Makeover

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Restaurants in Center City are bringing a bit of holiday cheer to brighten spirits dimmed by the ongoing pandemic. The first-ever Christmas in July debuts this week along a stretch of 12th Street in Midtown Village.

Tinsel, a holiday-themed pop-up bar, was created and several bars and restaurants nearby got a Christmas makeover.

There will be Christmas-themed cocktails in souvenir cups and socially-distanced outdoor dining.

The festivities started Friday afternoon and will run through August, or longer, depending on demand.
