Here's something to drink to -- a pop-up cocktail bar offering drinks that'll be sure to get you in the holiday spirit.
Miracle on Monroe will serve up holiday cheer in the Midtown Promenade at the Tapa Tapa space at 931 Monroe Dr. NE, Suite C-106 in Midtown from Friday, Nov. 25 through Saturday, Dec. 24.
The spot will feature holiday movies played on the walls, holiday music and decorations from lights to ribbons to garlands.
The Miracle on Monroe cocktail menu offers drinks made with seasonal ingredients including the Muletide (aquavit, sherry, ginger syrup, lime juice, and pumpkin pie soda) and the Santa-quila (reposado tequila, cocao nibs, sherry, maple syrup, and black walnut), as well as the Jingle Ball Nog, a take on the classic egg nog featuring brown butter fat-washed cognac, sherry, almond milk, cream, sugar, egg, and nutmeg. Naughty and Nice cinnamon bourbon and gingerbread-spices rye shots will also be available, in addition to holiday snacks and other things to nibble on. The cocktail list was created by beverage directror Nico de Soto, who also owns Mace in New York and Danico in Paris.
The bar will host themed events including holiday movie viewings on Wednesday; local guest bartenders mixing drinks to their favorite holiday albums on Thursday; Cookie Hour -- wherein complimentary warm cookies are served along with a DJ playing holiday songs -- on Fridays; Tacky Christmas Sweater contests on Saturday; and a local choral performance on Sunday.
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 will launch in Atlanta under Darren Carr and Eric Simpkins' Big Citizen hospitality group, which owns The Lawrence and the upcoming Bon Ton in Midtown.
