This Irish gastropub is ideal for festive happy hour or casual weekend cocktails. Holiday parties are available to book for eight or more people. 

Halcyon Brasserie  | 114 Walnut Street, Montclair

Halcyon not only is a favorite romantic date night spot but is also a great restaurant to enjoy upscale vibes with outdoor Christmas archways and green and gold tree decor indoors.  Seafood lovers can take advantage of the raw bar and sushi assortment.  Make it a full night out with a nightcap at the lounge upstairs. 

La Rocca Osteria  | 23 Midland Avenue, Montclair

The outdoor patio area is decked out with cute lights and wreaths. Patrons will experience its authentic Italian menu while admiring the classic festive decor. The only thing better than the decorations is the homemade pasta paired with a big glass of red wine.

Rab-Bit Hole at Blue Steel Pizza Co. | 285 Glenwood Avenue, Bloomfield

Rab-Bit Hole is seriously decking the halls with a little something extra this year. Throughout the month of December, this speakeasy inside of Blue Steel Pizza Co. will be completely transformed into a “Christmas Wonderland” instead of the usual “Alice in Wonderland” theme. Reserve a table on the website or text “RabbitHole” to (833) 612-1081. This Instagram-worthy event will book up fast.

While it’s a Passaic County location is more of the ‘and beyond’ for our Montclair-focused list, to leave off the Barrow House would be an oversight. This farmhouse-style restaurant is beautiful even on regular days but definitely shines during the holidays. The homey vibes are enhanced by the holiday decorations and seasonal menu.
