- Tinsel is Philadelphia's ONLY home-grown Christmas Bar that will bring even more Christmas cheer into the space formerly occupied by Simpson's Jewelry in Midtown Village. Tinsel debuted to capacity crowds every single day it was open last year. Tinsel was originally opened in less than three weeks when Simpson's moved out of the space next to Finn McCool's. This year, Craft Concepts Group spent months on raising the ceilings, breaking through the walls, exposing the original grand staircase, lengthening the bar and creating even more space for holiday revelry.
