Miracle’s Enchanting Holiday Bars Reopen For The Season In East Village

Miracle on 9th Street once again opens for the holiday season!

The holiday-themed cocktail pop-up bar reopens for its seventh season, with their staple kitschy holiday décor and festive, well-crafted cocktails. The pop-up originally began at Mace in 2014, but has since grown globally with over 120 locations worldwide! That said, Sippin’ Santa, Miracle’s tiki-themed partner returns to the Boilermaker again!

All locations follow capacity limitations and personal protection equipment mandates, while offering options for both indoor and outdoor seating. Visitors can even bring cocktails home with them if they opt for the bar’s to-go format!

The East Village bar will be decked out as usual with festive holiday decor, and their seasonal menu will incorporate themed mugs and barware into their cocktails, with options that’ll include their classic Santa Mug, Missile-Toe Shot Glass, and Christmas Carol Barrel. A portion of the proceeds made from the holiday themed Cocktail Kingdom glasses will be donated to the James Beard Foundation’s Open for Good campaign that provides independent restaurants and bars negatively impacted by the pandemic with relief support.

This year, there is also the return of the SanTaRex cocktail that’ll be served in a bright green Tyrannosaurus Rex ceramic mug (that you can buy to bring home). The cocktail menu features:


Vodka, Spiced Cranberry Sauce, Elderflower, Dry Vermouth, Lime, Rosemary, Absinthe Mist
