We all could use a miracle or two this year, and the Miracle Holiday Pop-Up Bar is set to make it happen.
The annual holiday-themed pop-up bar has announced plans to open in a brand new location this year – 136 6th Street, in the former Pork & Beans location downtown.
Miracle on 6th will open on Friday, November 27, and will feature all of the wall-to-wall Christmas decorations, and holiday-themed cocktails as in years past. But of course, there will be some big changes in 2020.
“It’s obviously going to be a little different this year,” says Spencer Warren, who is running Miracle on 6th. “It can’t be as crazy and intense as usual.”
Last year, Warren ran two Miracle pop-up locations in the city, but this year, he says Miracle on 6th will be the only one.
“It’s hard to do two with all the COVID restrictions in place, but we’re happy that we have a bigger space this year,” he says. “Not only is it larger, so we can spread out more, but they also already have a lot of booths in place, so people can separate themselves that way, too.”
Because of COVID-19 regulations, all guests at Miracle on 6th will have to order food with their drink orders. Warren says that he’s still working out the menu, but expect to see items from the kitchen at The Warren, his downtown bar and restaurant, along with sushi options.
Another new feature this year will be the introduction of a mini storefront in the front of the pop-up, with to-go cocktails and drinks.
The Miracle crew will also be installing three outdoor tent igloos on 6th Street.
“We’ll be offering them for rent, so if you have a small group, or a party of 10 or fewer, you’ll be able to reserve one,” Warren says.
And for the first time in its five-year history, guests will be able to make reservations at Miracle.
One thing that won’t change, though, will be the overflowing holiday decorations. “We’re actually taking all the decorations from two spaces and putting them into one this year, so it’s going to be a lot,” says Warren.
Miracle on 6th will be open from Friday, November 27 (the day after Thanksgiving) and will run through New Year’s Eve.
