Once again we are in the darkest depths of rainy winter. The time has come to gather in the bosom of our families, surrounded by warmth, laughter, and (with any luck!) christmas fudge. For many this time of year creates the most beautiful and sparkling memories of their lives. For the rest of us, a list of bars that are open on Christmas Eve and Christmas is instrumental for navigating the various emotional obstacles of what can be a very stressful time of year.

Fear not, we’re back once again with our annual list of “Bars Open on Christmas and Christmas Eve”. If they’re on the list we have personally called and spoken with someone at the bar or restaurant to confirm. Obviously there are some missing, so please add them to the Facebook page comments so we can assist as many Tacomans as possible in their hour of need. Remember to drink responsibly, travel in a guided sleigh or grab an Uber. We want to see you again in 2016!
