WHAT: Miracle on Seventh Street pop-up bar!
WHEN: Wednesda, December 7, 2017 from 7 PM to 10 PM
WHERE: Southern Efficiency, 1841 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20004
Try to get there ON TIME. There will be a line. We will meet in front of the bar.
Get ready to line up for egg nog shots and sleigh selfies. Miracle on Seventh Street—the pop-up better known as “the Christmas Bar”—will return for its third year. After rotating through Game of Thrones and Halloween themes, the holiday-themed pop-up from Drink Company aims to be the glitziest yet.
The former Mockingbird Hill bar will be transformed into a snowy winter wonderland complete with a toy train that runs around the room. In the back, you’ll feel like Hansel and Gretel inside a gingerbread house.
Another section of the pop-up (previously Eat The Rich) is decked out in garlands and 6,000 ornaments. It looks like “inside of a Christmas tree,” says special projects director Matt Fox, who leads the design of the space. Patrons can fuel their Instagram feeds with photos inside a vintage 1890s red sleigh next to a real 12-foot Christmas tree.
If you don’t celebrate Christmas, there’s something for you too. The sequel to Miracle on Seventh Street’s “Hanukkah Hangout” will be a room dubbed “Chinese and a Movie”—a nod to the Christmas day ritual of many Jewish families, including Fox’s. The space is filled with red lanterns and local Chinese takeout menus. The owner of Chinatown Express—the staff’s favorite spot for duck noodle soup—gets some wall real estate, alongside movie posters featuring actors and actress like Adam Sandlerand Barbara Streisand “who are members of the Tribe,” Fox says.
