A number of holiday pop-ups emerged in Chicago this holiday season. Almost all of these holiday pop-ups offer over-the-top decorations, season cocktails and Christmas music. Santa Baby takes the concept a step further by introducing a immersive theatrical experience. A number of characters mingle with guests at the Lakeview neighbor pop-up, advancing storylines over the course of weeks.
