Raleigh’s Festive AF Christmas Pop-Up Bar is BACK

Back by popular demand, Miracle at Haymaker returns for the second year in a row! Running from Black Friday through NYE, Miracle is a jingle balls to the walls X-Mas themed takeover, complete with special events, limited-edition cocktails and ho-ho-ho-holiday cheer up the wazoo. Yet somehow, this year’s pop-up promises to be EVEN MORE FESTIVE because apparently, that’s possible.

The Haymaker you know and love gets a complete Christmas makeover for Miracle and you better believe they go all out—these guys *fully* deck the halls with the most-over-the-top decor you’ve ever seen (check out last year’s transformation if you need proof). Everything, from the ceiling to the glassware, gets a festive twist. 

And don’t even get us started on the cocktail list. Fan favorites like the Run Run Rudolf and the Snowball Old Fashioned (yes, with a real snowball in the glass!) will be back on the menu in addition to some new delish debuts like the Christmas Carrol Barrel and And A Partridge in a Pear Tree

We got an advance peek at the menu—take a look and get thirsty (but note that this may not be the 100% set-in-stone menu). 

Kicking off on Black Friday and running through NYE, Haymaker is one of 80+ bars worldwide getting the royal Miracle treatment. So yeah, the fact that Raleigh ranks as a Miracle spot is *kinda* a big deal. 

Mark your advent calendars for these festive AF events:
(more events and details to come soon)

  • Miracle at The Haymaker Launch Party, Nov 23: a first look at the magic of Miracle with milk + cookies galore.

  • All the Jingle Ladies, Nov 27: grab your gals, get 'em out and give 'em some love with free candygram deliveries.

  • Happy Howlidays, Dec 1: for one day only The Haymaker is opening its doors to four-legged friends. Dress your doggie in his or her finest Christmas attire for a chance to win a prize. There'll be free treats and pet pics with Santa too!

  • Toy Drive,  Dec 4: it feels good to give back! Bring in unopened and unwrapped toys and school supplies to be donated to kids in need.

  • Fleece Navidad, Dec 6: rock your ugliest holiday sweater (the gaudier the better!) for a chance to win the title as "Tackiest" along with tickets to Carolina Ballet's The Nutcracker.

  • Get Lit with St Nick, Dec 11: get ready to party with Mr. Claus himself and maybe after a few rounds, you can convince him you deserve a spot on the "Nice List"

  • Holiday Karaoke, Dec 16 + Dec 23

  • Shitty Gift Exchange, Dec 27: swap your less-than-desireable gifts with something slightly more your speed—because one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

  • Tiki NYE, Dec 31

More events and further details to come! Stay tuned—we'll be updating this page as we learn more. 

And remember, The Haymaker packs up the tree and tinsel after NYE so get over there to get your jollies while you still can!
