Miracle holiday pop-up bar returning to Atlanta with new location, tiki bar

What’s become a favorite holiday tradition in Atlanta is back for a third year with a few changes.

Holiday-themed pop-up bar Miracle will return Nov. 23 once again in the Tapa Tapa space at 931 Monroe Dr. NE in Midtown Promenade. This year, Miracle will pop up with Miracle on Highland, a new location on the Eastside Beltline in Inman Park at The Brasserie and Neighborhood Café at Parish at 240 North Highland Ave. In addition, Bon Ton, located at 674 Myrtle St. NE, will host tiki-themed beverage program Sippin’ Santa. 

All locations will feature holiday-themed drinks and food, decor, holiday movies streamed on the wall, live music and other events.  

The Miracle concept was started in 2014 in New York by Greg Boehm and has expanded to 30 other cities including Charleston and Montreal. Miracle launched three years ago in Atlanta under Darren Carr and Eric Simpkins’ Big Citizen, which owns The Lawrence and Bon Ton and is set to open a new eatery next year at the Atlanta Dairies development in Reynoldstown.

“The past two years have had such an amazing response, we had to keep spreading holiday cheer with a new location,” said Simpkins  in a press release.
Miracle on Monroe will be open Wednesday-Sunday, with guests allowed in on a first come, first serve basis. The pop up will close for the season at midnight on Christmas Eve.
Miracle on Highland will share the same regular hours as Miracle on Monroe and will offer holiday-themed services through Parish’s regular café hours. Look for holiday cookies, treats, hot chocolate and cider, as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Miracle merchandise, including Santa mugs, will be for sale in the café. Holiday themed brunches will make an appearance every Saturday and Sunday with a daytime cocktail menu. Reservations for groups of 8-10 can also be made at the Highland location. 

Miracle on Highland will close at midnight on Christmas Eve, but will reopen for an extended run the weekend after Christmas. The new location will also be selling tickets for a New Year’s Eve party.
Sippin’ Santa, the tiki-themed 12th location the twin sister to Miracle will feature a menu of tiki drinks designed by bar owner and author Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, offered during Bon Ton’s regular lunch and dinner hours.
Food and beverage menus for each location will be announced Mid-November.
Miracle is 21 and up, no entry fee. Miracle will be open Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday 5pm to 12am, and Friday and Saturday 5pm to 1am.
