Christmas-Themed Pop Up Cocktail Bars Set To Launch In San Diego

November 16, 2020

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. A tiki-themed Sippin' Santa will also return to The Grass Skirt in Pacific Beach.

Heading into its seventh year, the beloved Christmas-themed pop-up bars Miracle and Sippin’ Santa are excited to return to San Diego for another holiday season. The concept for Miracle was born in 2014, when upon the advice of his mother, Greg Boehm decided to halt construction of what was to be his new New York City cocktail bar Mace to transform the unfinished space into a winter wonderland serving holiday-themed drinks among festive décor. As crowds swarmed what became Miracle on Ninth, Boehm's friends throughout the bar industry began reaching out to him and General Manager Joann Spiegel to see how they could recreate the holiday magic in their own bars, and expansion has boomed ever since.

From the beginning of November to the end of December 2020, Miracle and Sippin’ Santa locations around the country will toast the season with a festive menu of signature cocktails and over the top holiday décor, from classic to contemporary and everything in between. Miracle and Sippin’ Santa are fortunate to continue to partner with some of the best cocktail bars across the country, but as the safety of guests will be more important than ever, the pop-up concepts may look a bit different than in the past. 

For a few weeks only, The Grass Skirt in Pacific Beach will be transformed this holiday season with a twist, full of tiki-style and Polynesian décor. Starting on November 25, Sippin’ Santa at The Grass Skirt’s signature cocktail menu will include the North Pole Punch, Runaway Sleigh, and Rum Rum Rudolph, to name a few. Polite Provisions in North Park will also soon embrace the holidays by transforming into Miracle on 30th beginning on November 27. The bar will be 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.
