Miracle is coming back to Atlanta this holiday season for what will be the cocktail bar pop-ups fifth year in the city, according to a press release Friday. “The pandemic may have canceled lots of events this year, but Christmas won’t be one of them,” according to the release. But unlike its previous four years, Miracle 2020 will have “guidelines in place to ensure the safety of everyone partaking in the much-needed upcoming cheer.”
The original location, Miracle on Monroe, will not be on “Santa’s list this year,” because of the venue’s small size, according to the release. However, a new location, Miracle at Wonderkid at Atlanta Dairies, is being added, with Miracle on Highland returning to The Brasserie & Neighborhood Café PARISH. Sippin’ Santa is back at Bon Ton, along with a new location at Golden Eagle.
“What an unimaginably tough year for everyone globally,” Eric Simpkins, co-founder of Big Citizen — the company that puts on Miracle locally — along with partner Darren Carr, said in the release. “We’re hoping we can make a difference in Atlanta and that Miracle will bring Christmas cheer to our community in a time where we need it most. We’re especially excited about the two new locations. We’re making Memorial Drive our very own ‘Christmas District,’ and Miracle at Wonderkid and Sippin’ Santa at Golden Eagle will keep us merry and bright.”
In its fifth season in Atlanta, Miracle returns with its special holiday cocktails and holiday décor. Sippin’ Santa, Miracle’s Christmas-themed Tiki takeover, is also back so more people can safely enjoy Santa beachside. “However you prefer your Christmas cheer, Miracle is sure to deliver … and just so you know, wearing a mask ensures you’re on Santa’s good list,” according to the release.
Bon Ton’s Sippin’ Santa, the all-ages tiki twin to Miracle, returns for its third year along with a new location at Golden Eagle. Bon Ton will keep its regular hours for lunch and dinner but won’t offer its traditional drink menu during Sippin’ Santa. Golden Eagle will be operating inside and outside and serving up its “holiday-meets-paradise” drink menu.
Further details on all locations, including hours and safety measures in place, will be released soon. Miracle is 21 and up (excluding Sippin’ Santa), with no entry fee. There is a 2-hour limit for tables, and a 20 percent service charge will be added to each check.
