Miracle, the popular Christmas pop-up bar—is coming to Vermont with Miracle on Main Street in Ludlow and Miracle at Wolf Tree in White River Junction. Miracle is a global pop-up concept that started in New York in 2014; it partners with bars and restaurants around the world to offer masterfully crafted Christmas cocktails in cheery holiday-themed settings.
Arriving for the first time ever at Main + Mountain, Miracle on Main Street will kick off Nov. 27 and run through Dec. 31. The whimsical pop-up will spread much needed holiday cheer with over the top nostalgic décor and a themed cocktail menu, which will offer fan favorite drinks including the Christmapolitan, Snowball Old-Fashioned, and Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r! The venue is also offering to-go versions of its festive menu for those who wish to celebrate the season at home. This year, Miracle will donate 10% of all proceeds from the sale of Santa Pants, Christmas Carol Barrel and Santa Heads signature glassware to the James Beard Foundation Open for Good campaign to aid the relief efforts of independent restaurants.
Making its debut on Dec. 2, Miracle at Wolf Tree features a holiday oasis with elaborate twinkly lights, vintage garlands, reindeer figurines, and a themed cocktail menu. Some acclaimed drinks will include the Christmas Carol Barrel, SanTaRex, and Bad Santa – all served in kitschy glassware. For guests wanting to celebrate at home, the pop-up will also offer to-go versions of its themed cocktails. In the spirit of giving, a percentage of proceeds will benefit JAG Productions – a contemporary African-American community theatre producing diverse stories.
