The popular MG Road cocktail bar on Wall Street in downtown Asheville will morph into a Christmas-themed pop-up bar for about a month starting the day after Thanksgiving. The pop-up in Asheville will be known as Miracle on Wall Street.

MG Road, which is already decked out with amazing lights and sparkling decorations, will go gonzo with Christmas decorations when Miracle takes over. Holiday craft cocktails will be the star of the menu, which includes cocktails like a Snowball Old Fashioned (with gingerbread bourbon, wormwood bitters, and lemon zest) and Run Run Rudolph (blanco tequila, coffee liqueur, iced hot chocolate, Mexican spices) as well as “nice” and “naughty” shots. Drinks will be served in custom-themed glassware, which may be available for purchase (with 10 percent of proceeds going to Action Against Hunger).

There are also plans for an insane number of special events such as: a different Christmas movie played every night, complimentary holiday bar snacks, holiday dance parties, holiday live music, caroling parties, holiday karaoke and more.

Miracle launched in 2014 as the brainchild of Greg Boehm (or more specifically, his mother), who halted construction on his bar, Mace, to create a holiday-themed space, according to

The Miracle pop-up concept has been expanded to 50 cities across the U.S. this year.
