Yeah, yeah – we know Christmas is still five days away but we’re already searching for the perfect way to wind-down after the holiday madness is through. Thankfully, the Drake Hotel has it covered with boozy hot chocolate and a music festival.  

Beginning Sunday, Dec. 26 and running until Thursday, Dec. 30, the festival will feature over 25 bands at a mere cost of $5 per night. Performers will include Skratch Bastid, Do Make Say Think, Ruby Coast, By Divine Right, PS I Love You, and more, from 8 pm onwards each night.

Afterwards, cozy up in Canadiana glory atop the Sky Yard’s Après Ski Lodge with seasonal treats like boozy hot chocolate, s’more-inspired cocktails, and Drake Nog. A vintage ski-doo, fully-functioning firepit and warm blankets provide the perfect backdrop.

The Sky Yard is open Thursday through Saturday at 6 pm and Sunday through Wednesday at 8 pm. More information on What’s In The Box here:
