Miracle Holiday Pop-Up Bar To Return To San Diego's Polite Provisions With New Location & Concept To Install Within The Grass Skirt

November 5, 2019

First launched in New York City in 2014, Miracle has become a roving Christmas pop-up concept that will install within 100 locations around the country this year, including returning to San Diego at Polite Provisions, as well as bringing a brand new concept, the tiki-themed Sippin' Santa, to The Grass Skirt in Pacific Beach.

What has become a global phenomenon started as a suggestion from owner Greg Boehm’s mother, who encouraged him to halt construction of his NYC-based bar Mace in 2014 and transform the unfinished space into a winter wonderland for the few weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Miracle on Ninth Street was born, and in the years that followed, industry friends from other cities began reaching out to Boehm and GM Joann Spiegel to see how they could recreate the holiday magic in their own bars.

Beginning November 29 and taking place through New Year’s Eve, Polite Provisions will be transformed into a holiday oasis, decked out with festive décor and serving iconic, seasonally themed drinks including favorites such as Run Run Rudolph, Snowball Old Fashioned, Christmapolitan and the now classic Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r. This year Miracle partners around the world will host Ugly Sweater Parties at their locations on Monday, December 2, with the goal of having the largest combined ugly sweater gathering the world has ever seen. Guests are encouraged to don their tackiest holiday garb and join in the revelry of the Christmas season at their neighborhood Miracle location.

New to the San Diego area, Sippin’ Santa at The Grass Skirt joins over 20 other locations nationwide, with an updated menu of Tiki-themed holiday cocktails, including the Christmas Eve of Destruction and Papa Noel. Guests at both Miracle and Sippin’ Santa will also see brand new intricate and holiday themed Cocktail Kingdom custom glassware that will be available for purchase during the duration of the pop-ups.
