Overwhelmingly Festive Christmas Pop-Up Bars Are Coming to the Bay Area

This year, SF and San Jose get in on the merriment

Christmas-themed pop-up bar Miracle is hellbent on spreading holiday cheer all over the world, and in its fifth year, it’ll return to Pacific Cocktail Haven in San Francisco and head to Paper Plane in San Jose for the first time.

What started off as a one-off pop-up in New York has grown into a red-and-green beast with more than 90 locations. Starting the day after Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, PCH and Paper Plane will both transform into wintry wonderlands with in-theme cheeky cocktails (like the Koala-La La La, La La La La with gin, pine, and vermouth, or the Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r! starring sweet potato rum and marshmallow orgeat) in custom glassware. Check out the full menu below.

Paper Plane is also kicking it up a notch with a couple of new holiday-appropriate dishes as well, including a turkey pot pie samosa (turkey stew wrapped in roti dough) and mashed potato sundae (layered with turkey gravy, candied bacon, and fixins to share with a group).

Koala-La La La, La La La La
