BOSTON - How are you going to get into the swing of the holiday season this year? Will you watch a holiday classic like Home Alone or Christmas Vacation? Maybe you will listen to some classic holiday music to put yourself in a festive mood?
Or, if you are not inclined to partake in either of these traditions, then perhaps you will be interested to learn that four bars in the local Boston area are participating in a holiday pop-up tradition that has ballooned in popularity over the past couple of years across the globe?
That’s right, Miracle is returning to Boston in 2019 to transform four different bars in the area into a flurry of winter wonderlands that will host ugly Christmas sweater parties and theme menus to include a plethora of holiday-based cocktails.
In Cambridge, Kimpton Marlowe will partake in the festivities from November 29 to December 24 (that’s the day after Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve) for select hours on the daily. Worcester’s Still & Stir bar will partake a bit longer, from November 25 to December 31. And Mystic Station in Malden will operate the events from November 29 to December 30, as shared by Boston.Com.
As for the fourth bar, that would be Shore Leave in Boston, which is ratcheting up the themes to the next level by embracing a tiki bar aesthetic, which is fused with the holiday vibes, as well. In addition to the standard offerings that come from Miracle pop-ups, Shore Leave will also host a tiki bar from November 26 to December 31. On December 2, there will be an ugly sweater party hosted at Shore Leave, as well.
In terms of the holiday-themed cocktails that will be provided at each of the bars, you can experience “naughty or nice” shots that feature wintry flavors like peppermint and cinnamon. Alcoholic eggnog is also included in the Jingle Balls Nog, a favorite cocktail among the patrons. The, gin, wine, prosecco, and syrup-infused Run Run Rudolph drink is arguably the event’s most popular offering.
The Miracle pop-up service began in New York in 2014 and has since spread across North America, South America, Europe, and Oceania. It can be a very festive and fun way to ring in the season, for sure!
