The holidays may seem far away now, but holiday pop-up bar Miracle is expanding this winter to 50 cities worldwide, and Austin made the nice list this year. The New York-based pop-up will transform Roosevelt Room’s next-door event space The Eleanor into Miracle on 5th Street. The temporary bar will offer seasonally-themed cocktails and kitschy decor from Friday, November 24 through Christmas Eve on Sunday, December 24.
Miracle’s menu includes cocktails like a Snowball Old Fashioned (with gingerbread bourbon, wormwood bitters, and lemon zest) and Run Run Rudolph (blanco tequila, coffee liqueur, iced hot chocolate, Mexican spices) as well as “nice” and “naughty” shots. Drinks will be served in custom-themed glassware, which may be available for purchase (with 10 percent of proceeds going to Action Against Hunger). Read on for the full list of cocktails below.
Miracle launched in 2014, the brainchild of Greg Boehm (or more specifically, his mother), who halted construction on his bar Mace to create a holiday-themed space. The Eleanor will undergo a similar transformation, going heavy on the holiday nostalgia with ribbons, garlands, and a holiday soundtrack.
