Jingle is an over-the-top, holiday-themed pop-up with a chess twist at the Saint Louis Chess Campus in the Central West End! Families and children will enjoy Jingle's hot chocolate, cookies, and treats on select days (Nice hours) while having fun with hands-on activities and viewable chess sets at the World Chess Hall of Fame. Adults will enjoy a festive and colorful cocktail lounge in the evenings (Naughty hours) with chess-inspired drinks and small bites at Kingside Diner.
Jingle has converted the Saint Louis Chess Campus into a kitschy winter wonderland with floor-to-ceiling decorations, themed chess sets, and more, perfect for sharing selfies and season's greetings! Visitors can also peruse the World Chess Hall of Fame exhibitions during regular business hours with free admission.
Jingle tickets during Nice hours are complimentary, which include snacks and crafts at the World Chess Hall of Fame. Jingle tickets during Naughty hours cost $15 per person, which includes 1 complimentary drink ticket (additional drinks available for purchase), soft drinks, and light appetizers at Kingside Diner in the Central West End. With each ticket purchase, Saint Louis Chess Campus members will enjoy a free holiday gift from Q Boutique.
Proceeds from Jingle benefit the exhibitions and programs at the World Chess Hall of Fame, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
