Countdown to Christmas with a cocktail in hand at Miracle in Miami. The international holiday-themed pop-up bar makes its way back to Wynwood this yuletide season for a month of festive drinks and naughty fun.

For a snowbird, winter in Miami typically includes lots of basking on the beach and eating out at as many of the best Miami restaurants as possible. But, whether you live here or not, our warm weather does not preclude us from partaking in all the yuletide cheer each holiday season. Make no mistake: what we lack in snow-covered rooftops, cozy fireplaces and hot toddy cocktails we more than compensate for with sparkling palm tree-lined streets and a bevy of festive events that kick off pretty much as soon as the last plate of turkey is cleared from the table. Whether you’re in the mood for an off-kilter take on a classic holiday show, a boozy pop-up full of Instagram-worthy photo opps or a massive, family-friendly holiday market under the stars, Miami has it this year.
