Holiday-themed bars pop up in Madison, Milwaukee


Miracle, a holiday-pop up bar that serves nostalgic cocktails, is coming to Madison and Milwaukee. The two locations open Nov. 29.

Look for Miracle on Second Street at The Tin Widow, 703 S. Second St., Milwaukee (open through Dec. 29) and Miracle on King Street at Lucille, 101 King St., Madison (open through Dec. 23).

Both become a temporary Christmas wonderland with nostalgic décor and signature cocktail menu that includes the Christmapolitan,Run Run Rudolph and SanTaRex (served in a bright green Tyrannosaurus Rex ceramic mug).

Dozens of other Miracle locations will pop up elsewhere in the world, Canada to New Zealand. All in the U.S. will sell holiday mugs as featured on the signature cocktail menu, and 10 percent of sales are donated to Action Against Hunger.

New this year: Guests are invited to join Miracle on Dec. 2 to break the record for Largest Ugly Sweater Party.

On Dec. 12, Madison’s Lucille presents a fundraiser with a tiki twist, 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Admission is $5 or a donation such as canned goods, or a winter coat.
