Get Into the Spirit(s) of the Season at Miracle Bar in Austin

By  | 


The holidays are about to get a whole lot jollier in Austin this year. A seasonally festive pop-up bar called Miracle will spread holiday merriment beginning the day after Thanksgiving. Housed next to The Roosevelt Room event venue in downtown Austin, this space will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland (complete with kitschy holiday decor and cheesy Christmas music) where patrons can enjoy festive beverages and get into the holiday spirit(s).

The Miracle Bar concept was born three years ago in, (where else?) New York City and called “Miracle on Ninth Street.” The winter wonderland experience is complete with an abundance of garlands, Christmas lights, ribbons, candles and tinsel and Christmas Carols galore. Don’t miss the Hanukkah Hideaway where you can enjoy the glow of blue and silver as you sip cocktails and spin dreidels all night.

Miracle Bar Austin is slated to open Friday, November 24 and remain open through Christmas Eve on Sunday, December 24. To plan your visit, go to the website for The Roosevelt Room, where the pop-up bar will be located to stay updated.
