Anté up this Christmas at these two delightfully festive pop-ups!
Something tells me that by the end of this year, we’ll all have devolved into the ‘humbug’ spirit of Ebenezer Scrooge and The Grinch. However, there is one thing this November has in store for us that might brighten you with a welcome dose – accompanied by a stiff glass – of Christmas cheer: the Miracle Christmas-themed pop-up bar, and tiki-themed cousin, Sippin’ Santa, will be returning to Atlanta this season with multiple locations!
The Christmas season is going to look a little different this year without a doubt. But one thing that might make things a little more merry is the fact that the beloved Christmas pop-ups Miracle and Sippin’ Santa are bringing their festivities back for the yuletide season.
Per their website:
“Miracle is a Christmas-themed pop-up cocktail bar that serves holiday cocktails in a festive setting. With kitschy holiday décor, professionally-developed cocktails and the nostalgic energy of the best office party you’ve ever been to, Miracle is sure to get even the grouchiest grinch in the holiday spirit.”
This year, Miracle will open up at not one, but two Atlanta locations: at The Brasserie and Neighborhood Café at Parish in Inman Park, as well as Wonderkid at Atlanta Dairies in Reynoldstown. Meanwhile Sippin’ Santa will be going down the chimney of Bon Ton Midtown restaurant for another year, as well as Golden Eagle on Memorial Drive in Cabbagetown. Both pop-ups will re-open with greater focus on outdoor dining and a new set of safety precautions.
Seating will be available, albeit limited, at all locations. Additionally, each venue will aim for indoors-and-outdoors festivities – including utilizing Atlanta Dairies’s Yard green space at Miracle’s destination at Wonderkid, with distancing barriers in place, timed reservations (of up to two hours), and limited capacities. Patrons at these locations are obliged to wear masks when not seated or speaking to staff personnel.
Co-founder of the pop-ups’ restaurant group, Big Citizen, said that he would be willing to axe the pop-ups this year if cases of the coronavirus surge or patrons disregard the safety measures in place.
The official launch date is yet-to-be announced, but the group aims to open each one before Thanksgiving this season.
