To create Jingle Hell's, we took an ordinary bar and transformed it in every sense of the word – including installing a drop ceiling and hanging 32,000 ornaments and 2.5 miles of garland amidst naked barbies, empty pill bottles and liquor bottles. (All for a 10-day run.)
Once the base decor layer was installed, we then filled the bar with more specific photo-worthy moments – a living room scene with the fireplace boarded up and the tree torched, a taxidermy wall full of Santa's reindeer, and a f*cked up workshop where Very Bad Santa could sit on his throne.
From drink menus, coasters, shot glasses, and matchbooks to over 40 pieces of original wall art, we reimagined every detail to make Jingle Hell's feel as permanent as any other bar.
We also created twisted versions of go-to bar programming – from Dirty Caroling and Krampus Karaoke to Humbug Trivia and Ho Ho Bingo.
We also loaded up the bar with tons of show-branded signs, artwork, character plushes, ornaments and anything else we could think of to ensure that every guest who entered didn't miss the reason for the anti-holiday season.
Jingle Hell's saw 17,000 people come through its doors during its 10-day run, driving more than 170 million media impressions. Happy! became Syfy's best premiere in two years.
