For the fifth consecutive year, Miracle on Ninth Street — a Christmas inspired pop-up bar — opened inside Mace, the cocktail bar at 649 E. Ninth St. at Avenue C.
Mace owner Greg Boehm is behind the holiday pop ups, an empire that has grown to 80-plus worldwide.
And as 12th Street residents learned yesterday, there’s also a Miracle on 12th Street that just popped up for business between Avenue A and Avenue B in the former Double Wide space…
Boehm also took over the lease from Double Wide, which closed back in March after seven years in business.
Apparently the address will serve as a pop up before the planned cocktail lounge opens. Unlike the Ninth Street location, the 12th Street bar will take reservations for five people or more during the holiday.
Said one local resident: “I feel duped as a neighbor. They sold this as an upscale cocktail bar that was going to be quiet as opposed to the loud shit show that we had to endure when it was Double Wide.”
And if you need another holiday pop-up choice, Boehm’s bar Boilermaker on First Avenue at First Street is now a tiki-themed Sippin’ Santa (as it has been this time of year since 2015).
