It’s going to be a very jolly holiday season in Pittsburgh!
Miracle, the Christmas-themed pop-up bar that opens during the holiday season at spots around the country, will be back for the 2019 season with two Pittsburgh locations.
The first location will be Miracle on Liberty, located at 717 Liberty Avenue, in The Clark Building. And the second location will be Miracle on Carson, located in the former Lava Lounge at 2240 East Carson Street.
As in years past, Pittsburgh’s cocktail whizkid Spencer Warren is spearheading both efforts, and will be transforming the space into a holiday wonderland, with Christmas decorations as far as the eye can see, and a catchy signature cocktail menu, with drinks like the Snowball Old-Fashioned, the Run Run Rudolph, and the SanTaRex.
Miracle on Liberty will open on Friday, November 29, and will be open every day (including Christmas!) through Tuesday, December 31 from 4:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
Miracle on Carson will open daily starting Wednesday, November 27 through Tuesday, December 31 from 5:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
Both Pittsburgh Miracle locations will join other Miracle bars around the country is selling holiday mugs, with 10% of all sales donated to Action Against Hunger. Additionally, Pittsburgh’s Miracle locations will be partnering with 412 Food Rescue as they have in previous years, with a goal to raise over $50,000 in donations.
“We are truly a pop-up bar that comes into unique spaces and brings Miracle to life for the city of Pittsburgh” says Warren, in a release. “I’m thrilled to bring this season, a second location for our community to enjoy amazing cocktails and great events.”
Miracle on Carson will also be open for party bookings and large gatherings.
