The 'Miracle' Christmas Pop-up Bar at The Henrietta Hotel in Covent Garden

This Christmas a 'Miracle' bar is coming to London, having become a regular pop-up in New York as 'The Miracle on 9th Street', and expanded into other cities around the US and elsewhere.  The Bar, with nostalgic Christmas trimmings, will be popping up from 23rd November to 24th December at The Henrietta Hotel in Henrietta St, Covent Garden. Visitors can sample special cocktails like a Snowball Old Fashioned (Butterscotch Rye, Spiced Demerara, Wormwood Bitters, Orange Zest), eat Alpine style food and more, all within a very photogenic setting.

"Experimental Group, the innovative hospitality entrepreneurs, will bring the festively famous Miracle pop-up bar phenomenon from the U.S. to London for the very first time, at Henrietta Hotel. The Christmas-themed pop-up bar, renowned across America for its creative cocktails garnished with a side of kitsch, will launch on the hotel’s mezzanine from Black Friday, 23rd November 2018 until Christmas Eve.
Located next to the Covent Garden piazza, in amongst the shops and boutiques, Miracle at Henrietta will provide the perfect pitstop for a cocktail, and a chance to escape the inevitable Christmas craziness that consumes the capital. Hidden away on the mezzanine, guests are transported back in time to Christmas past, with a nostalgic take on festive décor. Reminiscent of a chalet living room on Christmas Eve, stockings will be hung, fairy lights strung, and the Christmas tree will take centre stage.
Miracle will offer their renowned roster of Christmas concoctions, designed by original Experimental Cocktail Club alumni Nico de Soto, who returns to the Experimental family with favourites such as the Snowball Old Fashioned (Butterscotch Rye, Spiced Demerara, Wormwood Bitters, Orange Zest), Christmapolitan (Vodka, Elderflower, Dry Vermouth, Spiced Cranberry Sauce, Rosemary, Lime, Absinthe Mist) and newcomer And A Partridge In A Pear Tree (Reposado Tequila, Pear Brandy, Mezcal, Spiced Demerara Syrup, Lime, Egg White, Club Soda, Angostura Bitters, Cinnamon), all served in famously fun and festive glassware. Available alongside, guests can choose from a selection of Alpine-inspired snacks, from an Ibérico ham and truffle Croque Madame to Vacherin Mont d’Or grissini and a Chestnut Mont Blanc, all unique to Miracle at Henrietta.
From humble beginnings as a single location in New York in 2014, Miracle has expanded to over 80 new cities across the U.S. and to locations in Asia, Central America and now London for the first time in 2018."

When - 23rd November 2018 - until Christmas Eve

Learn a new skill….
Those looking to brush up their skills can participate in one of around 50 workshops taking place over the course of the five weeks, including: how to prepare a fresh pasta meal, pasta making, food photography and ingredients tastings. Master classes will be held by members of Italy’s most best-loved pasta family leading participants in an exploration of the delights of pasta traditions. Instagram aficionados including Food Feels, Cutlery Chronicles and Giulia Mule will also be hosting master classes, including food photography and styling.
