Last year, Miracle on Monroe was a big hit in Midtown Atlanta. So this year, the organizers have opened a second location in Buckhead.

Although Miracle on Monroe is about the only Christmas-themed pop-up bar in Atlanta, some pop-up shops will be serving drinks as well. For example, Holiday Sip ‘N Shop, hosted by Accent Waterworks on Northside Drive, will serve drinks from local breweries as shoppers meander through the apartment community’s lobby. Local businesses will also be set up in the lobby to sell their products, and there will be a different set of businesses every week.
