On the heels of its Nov. 27 release party, the Gem City SoberBar is back to bring the community together in a safe and welcoming space.

This Friday, Dec. 27, the Gem City SoberBar, along with Lore, a storytelling platform, will be hosting a holiday-themed pop-up, intended to celebrate your accomplishments of 2019 and look forward to all that you can achieve in 2020.

Founded by Kristen Domke, Gem City SoberBar was created as an alcohol-free alternative for those in recovery or simply looking for other ways to interact with their community without the involvement of spirits.

There will be a giving table set up for those who either want to bring in any gifts or items that they’d like to give away or, on the flip side, for those who may have not received any gifts for Christmas this year. Only one gift can be taken per person. Any gifts left over from the event will be donated.

>> JUST ANNOUNCED: Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, Joan Jett coming to Cincinnati

A variety of mocktails will be available  for purchase. Everyone in attendance is encouraged to write down their 2019 accomplishments and dreams for 2020 on a sticky note and add it to the sticky note wall.

The event runs from 6-10 p.m.
