It is now officially wintertime! December brings us holiday shopping, surreal amounts of festive holiday food, ugly-sweater weather – all the traditional Christmas things we wait the whole year for. Although L.A. is not exactly a perfect setting for all the festive winter activities, you can still get into the holiday spirit with eggnog and mulled wine. So, just in time for holiday adventures, an over-the-top pop-up holiday bar, Miracle on Santa Fe, returns to the Arts District’s Westbound.
The Miracle pop up originated from New York City – there it was called Miracle on Ninth Street. Here in L.A., Miracle on Santa Fe brings you an insane interior design: as you settle in with your festive drink, you’ll be surrounded by nutcrackers, garlands, twinkling lights, stockings, tinsel – you name it! You can also expect carolers, a visit from Santa Claus, “Hanukkah hideaway”, and plenty more of festivities. Miracle on Santa Fe is here to show you that it truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
Miracle on Santa Fe offers a 10-holiday-cocktail menu. The drinks are designed by Mace’s Nico de Soto, including the Christmopolitan, made with vodka, elderflower, dry vermouth, spiced cranberry sauce, rosemary, lime and absinthe mist; the You’ll Shoot Your Rye Out, with pumpkin-spice rye, a Budweiser-marshmallow syrup and egg; and the Jingle Ball Nog, with cognac, amontillado sherry, peanut butter, almond milk, pandan, cream, nougat syrup, egg and nutmeg. Miracle’s original-cocktail menu include the Czech It Twice, made of Becherovka herbal liqueur, orange juice, pineapple, cream of coconut, and angostura; the Chailent Night, with Monkey Shoulder whiskey, Martini Rubino vermouth and chai-spiced rum butter, and more.
Moreover, Westbound is partnering up with PATH, a local nonprofit organization that fights homelessness; so if you bring a quart-size bag of travel-sized hygiene products – you’ll get a complimentary cup of punch. Nothing is better than drinking and simultaneously donating for a good cause!
Westbound’s Miracle on Santa Fe runs from November 29 through December 31 at 300 South Santa Fe Avenue.
