Returning to Atlanta for its second year is Miracle On Monroe, the holiday pop-up bar that’s as cheery as it is Lushworthy. From the tabletops covered in wrapping paper to the Christmas lights that fill nearly every inch of the ceiling, this place oozes holiday spirit, but in a good way. In addition to its original location off of Monroe Drive (next to Landmark Midtown Art Cinema), Miracle now has a second location: Miracle Two The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. I’ve yet to visit the new location in Buckhead, but I can say that the Monroe spot is super cozy, in space and feel.
As far as booze, Miracle features several signature cocktails ($12) and shots ($5). My personal favorites were the “Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r” and “Christmapolitan.” A clear ode to the Die Hard franchise, the “Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r” was a pleasantly sippable combination of Barbados rum, cachaca, overproof rum, purple yam-coconut orgeat, and pineapple. And with additions like cranberry sauce and rosemary, the Christmapolitan (pictured above) was festive both visually and taste-wise. Shots are available in “Naughty” (cinnamon and bourbon) or “Nice” (rum, peppermint, and chocolate).
Both Miracle On Monroe and Miracle Two The Shops Buckhead Atlanta will be open until December 24.
