Pittsburgh’s pop-up holiday bar is back for a second year — with a new location and new festive cocktails.

Though there are some changes, the holiday cheer remains, said Spencer Warren, owner of Miracle on Market, which is one of 50 such pop-ups across the world.

Here’s what to expect from the mega-popular Pittsburgh Miracle.

A new, historic location

The bar is called Miracle on Market to signify its new location in Market Square, where it will be perched on the third floor of The Original Oyster House. Last year, Miracle on Liberty popped up in a Liberty Avenue storefront.

The Miracle crew could have taken the easy route and built the pop-up from the shell of an existing bar, but instead they’re building the bar from scratch in a space normally used as a dining room.

At 146 years old, The Oyster House is the oldest bar and restaurant in the city, so if you’ve never been there, here’s your opportunity to check it off your Pittsburgh bucket list.

Plus, being situated in the heart of Downtown next to the Market Square Holiday Market will add “a whole new element,” Warren said.
