‘Tis the season for Miracle at Southernside | Photo by GVLtoday
Call it a holiday miracle, or better yet, just call it Miracle. That’s what has officially taken over Southernside Brewing Co. (25 Delano Dr.).
Over the last week, the halls of Southernside Brewing Co. have slowly departed from their everyday look and feel to host this holiday-themed pop-up bar. Today, the halls are decked from floor to ceiling with festive decor, from animatronic reindeer to a pajama-clad Santa Claus.
Miracle opens today, Monday, Nov. 21andruns through Friday, Dec. 30 — open seven days a week from 11 a.m.-midnight (excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas Day).
What exactly does this winter wonderland entail? Let’s take a look by the numbers:
Does the concept sound familiar to you? It may, as Miracle pops up in bars and businesses across the country, with SC locations in Mt. Pleasant (hey, CHStoday 👋) and Myrtle Beach. Much like Santa’s sleigh, Miracle even appears in countries like the Netherlands and Mexico.
