Put on your cutest elf costume, your best wig, and get ready to sip mimosas at the most iconic fusion event of 2021: drag and Christmas.
At Montreal's Christmas bar, the Miracle pop-up bar, you'll be able to catch three queens — Miss Butterfly, Rainbow and Wendy Warhol — in festive attire at this holiday bar's brunches on December 5, 12, 19 and 26 with two performances per day from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Tickets are already on sale at $25 each, so now's the time to check your calendar and call up your friends to see when they're all free to hit up a holiday drag brunch. No time to waste!
While there, you can enjoy a menu specially designed for the event, which ranges between $15 and $25. And of course, the quintessential brunch menu item will be available: bottomless mimosas for $39.
So, every Sunday in December, you can spend your day sipping Christmas cocktails or that sweet orange and bubbly while watching local queens' performances based on the greatest holiday hits by Mariah Carey, Britney Spears and others.
If you're a fan of all things Noel, Miracle is your spot, with all of its festive colours, decorations and servers that look like they just hopped out of Santa's workshop.
You can find this unique bar at Place d'Youville in Montreal. Make sure you get there in the next few weeks though, as it's only open until December 26 this year!
Montreal's favourite Christmas-themed bar is returning to the city this holiday season. MTL Blog got an exclusive sneak peek ahead of the opening — and, as you probably guessed, it's outrageously festive to the point of feeling like a holiday fever dream in the best possible way.
This is Miracle Pop-Up Bar's first edition since 2019, as it was cancelled in 2020 because of COVID-19.
"Miracle Christmas Bar [..] is a bar that is completely over-the-top Christmas. Every little thing you can think of is covered in Christmas and we bring the holiday spirit as much as possible in a space," Demers said. "If you have an over-the-top aunt at Christmas that squeezes your cheeks and just loves to see you and you haven't seen her and you always dread that moment, that's literally what it is in a bar format," said Demers
And it's got a Christmas-themed cocktail list waiting for you, including fan-favourites such as Christmapolitan, Christmas Carol Barrel, Snowball Old-Fashioned, Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r!, Jingle Balls Nog, Nice Shot, and Naughty Shot.
New on Miracle's cocktail menu this year is the Elfing Around, plus "freshly updated and renewed recipes for the Jolly Koala, On Dasher, and SanTaRex."
To add to all the good things Miracle brings, "10% of all proceeds from the sale of Santa Pants, Christmas Carol Barrel and Santa Heads signature glassware to the James Beard Foundation Open for Good campaign to aid the relief efforts of independent restaurants."
