    How does a Harry Potter pop up run out of butter beer?! Not to mention the butter beer mugs?? We were told the mugs ran out after the first night!! This is so poorly managed it’s embarrassing. Cheap decor. Place was empty, didn’t even need a reservation. Music was instrumental and Aladdin-like? Kind of weird. Disappointed is the only word that comes to mind to describe it.

    Drinks were waaaaaay over priced for what they were. We got one appetizer that was good but still slightly over priced. For two drinks and 1 app we spent $50. The app was very yummy but the drinks were just okay. The space was super dark, so dark you could barely read the menu. The decorations were very cheap and unimpressive. Very disappointed in this experience. Would not recommend!

    Ambiance was nice. Picture opportunities scattered around. The kitchen was closed, which is fine, i just wish it was communicated (when making the reservation) that the kitchen closes at a certain time. Reservation also didn’t specify when trivia night was ending so we missed out on that. They were out of the two drinks we wanted and the two we got instead were definitely an acquired taste. I personally wouldn’t recommend coming just for the drinks but more for the ambiance. We made it a good time by doing our own trivia at the table. Service was nice too.

    They were out of the butter brew mugs but still charged the same price for the drink without the take home mug. The decor and ambience were great and we had an amazing time

    Decor looked like it came from the dollar store. Seems like a lot more thought could have been put into the decorations and overall experience. Then they forgot about my wife's order. Had to ask for napkins and get our own silverware. It was a Harry Potter themed pop up bar and they were out of butterbeer. Don't think I'll ever go to a pop up bar at this location again.

    Food was terrible and almost inedible. Eat somewhere else in PNL or downtown prior, don’t waste your money on the food here. Drinks were decent, atmosphere was great. Would’ve liked some background music playing as it was a bit quiet and awkward in between trivia rounds. It was worth a visit for the atmosphere alone, but the food and service leave a lot to be desired.

    For starters, there was no reason to pay $20/person to reserve a table. It wasn’t that busy and you could’ve walked in for free. Service was very very slow. Drinks were just ok, not great or anything that crazy. It was nicely decorated, but overall just not worth the cost.

    Decorations were fine enough, though not nearly to the extent we expected/have seen at other pop-ups like this. We had to go to the bar to get our drinks even though it was dead when we were there and they did not apply the $20pp cover to our order, which is bananas.

Food is fine for bar food and was what we expected. Thank you tinsel tavern for being open on Christmas!! We were out of town and it was nice to have a fun spot to meet Christmas night. 🎄🥂🎅🏽

    Extremely disappointing. The decorations were pretty, but that is all that was good. There were not many options for food. And when we got the food it was cold. It was definitely not worth the money I spent on the reservations. Would not recommend

    The only thing worth it at this place was the DJ. Everything else was very subpar. The drinks were terrible and most of our party members could not finish what they ordered. Service was slow— over an hour for drinks to even come out. The DJ was great and is the only reason I could give this spot a 1 star. Paying $20 per person to reserve a table is absolutely appalling compared to the experience you have while there.

    Charging $20 per person for a reservation and that money not going towards your bill is a HUGE rip off! We waited several minutes once we were there for someone to even acknowledge and seat us. The drinks were pretty good. The food we got (buffalo dip) was just ok and could’ve been warmer. The staff was friendly and attentive once we were seated. I wouldn’t go again.

    We didn’t have any food, only drinks. I was disappointed that we paid $20 per person to rsvp a table and when we showed up there were plenty of open tables. The drinks were good. It was pretty dark in there. Just feel like with Christmas time it should be more lit up. The decorations were cute!

    Ummm. Only two people were working there. You could not get a server to get a drink, and when you could, it took for ever. To be clear- this is in no way the people working there’s fault. We felt awful for them. They were doing their very best, but if you are going to charge a $20 cover, you need to ensure you are providing a great experience to back it up. Not ok. Ownership and management needs to do better.

    This was the worst pop up bar I have ever been. There was a $20 per person reservation fee and no entertainment, barely any service, and horrible personalities of the employees. We sat for 30 minutes before we were ancknowledged and to get waters and another 15 to get our first and only round of drinks. We sat for 45 minutes before receiving a drink. No apology and barely any personality from the server. We were only talked to one time in an hour and a half. The drinks are overpriced and small. When we talked to the manager, he simply shrugged his shoulders. Do not come it. It is a waste of time and money!!

    I was looking for a wonderful experience and though the ambiance is there… the experience isn’t. We waited 20 minutes and no one came to our table. We finally went to the bar to see if we needed to go there to order. Finally someone came to our table - we ordered a round of drinks. It took another 15+ minutes to get our drinks. Then we never saw our server again - she was actually tending the bar. The drinks were good and we would have ordered another round had we had the opportunity. Instead, we left cash on the table for our tab and left. Would not go here again unfortunately. Ambiance good. Drinks good. Service/Availability of staff terrible.

    The cost for the experience is high. Service was slow for a Wednesday night and drinks weren’t very good. I get better drinks at John’s or Levee. Was expecting glassware but drinks came in plastic cups and one comes in a strippers leg. Felt like a holiday themed strip club instead of a cute Tinsel Tavern. Also, be aware $20 reservation fee is a cover charge.

    AWFUL. Don't pay the cover fee - there was nobody there. We paid $20 for nothing. It was understaffed and slow service despite being relatively empty. Our group couldn't wait to finish our one drink and go someplace else. The decorations were fine. I think everyone is over these pop ups. Sad - because with NO COVER, good food, and full bar it could be a great time. It would be packed if those were the goals, instead of greed.

    We didn’t have any food because we were going out to dinner after. The drinks were delicious, the wait staff were friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was exactly what we were wanting out of a Christmas pop up bar. Enjoyed the Christmas movies playing as we listened to Christmas songs.
