Two funky pop-up bars are back for the holiday season to get you in the Christmas spirit. Time-out.
Favorite pop-up Miracle will take the place of the bar The Cabinet in Manhattan and will be called Miracle on 9th Street. A bar Thief in Brooklyn will become Miracle on Union. Both venues will serve themed holiday cocktails until December 31st.
Favorite drinks include Christmaspolitan, Elfing Around and Snowball Old-Fashioned. New this year are Grandma Got Run Over by A T-Rex, Holiday Spiked Chai and Santa's Little Helper.
There are two warming drinks on the menu - hot buttered rum and mulled wine. If you're really in the mood for a party, try shots. There is a savory one with bourbon and cinnamon or a nice shot with rum, mint tea and chocolate.

Miracle is known not only for its delicious drinks, but also for its delicious serving. Bartenders serve each drink in festive (or even fun) glassware, such as a Santa Claus mug or a T-Rex glass. Gorgeous garnishes add to the whimsical visual impact.
In terms of visual impact, no one creates Christmas decor quite like Miracle. Everywhere red and green, explosions of tinsel and lights.
The first Miracle opened in 2014 after Mace owner Greg Behm decorated his bar between Thanksgiving and Christmas with enough decorations to turn it into a vacation paradise. Greg's mom came up with the name Miracle on 9th Street, and every year the space has grown. Now there are more than 200 of its branches throughout the United States!
