A pop-up bar, you say? I have honestly never heard of this before, but when I found out about Miracle on Walnut Street, my interest was picued. It’s a Christmas-themed bar in Springfield, MO. Naturally, other questions popped into my mind – When does it start, Where do I sign up, and how long does it go for? Well, to answer your (my) questions, I’ve decided to write a little article on it for your kind perusal!
Before we get into the deets of Miracle – the pop-up Christmas bar, let’s look into where it was birthed.
What the heck is Miracle on Walnut Street?
It all started one day on Ninth Avenue in Manhattan, and soon spread across the country and even the globe! Christmas lights, costumed bar tenders, Santa head mugs, and a Hannukah hideaway! The menu is standard throughout this franchise, so if you have had the honor of frequenting their St. Louis or Manhattan establishment, you can breathe easy as the same drinks will be served here in Springfield, MO!
The concept launched in 2014 as the bar Mace was poised to open on East Ninth Street but wasn’t ready to welcome customers. Rather than letting the space be vacant through the lucrative holiday season, Boehm, along with his partner Jeannette Kaczorowski hung a bunch of tinsel and opened a Christmas-themed pop-up bar.
Once word got out about this themed bar, thirsty patrons lined up in order to partake in Christmasy Libations in a Hanukkah Hideaway lined with shiny silver foil and blue dreidel cutouts (Christmas bar mogul Boehm happens to be Jewish). When the holiday season ended, so did Miracle, until the following year, that is.
