Miracle by Riley’s by the Seawall will run from November 17 – December 30.
Miracle is a Christmas-themed pop-up cocktail bar that serves holiday cocktails in a festive setting. With kitschy holiday decor, professionally- developed cocktails and the nostalgic energy of the best office party you’ve ever been to. Miracle is sure to get even the grouchiest grinch in the holiday spirit.
The concept was born in 2014 when upon the advice of his mother, owner Greg Boehm decided to halt construction of what was to be his new East Village Cocktail bar called Mace and transformed the unfinished space into a pop-up bar serving holiday themed drinks among over-the-top Christmas decorations.
For the 3rd year in a Row Riley’s is Part of the Miracle Christmas pop-up franchise serving Fairfield County.
In November of 2020 Yoon Hee Lee was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. She wanted to decorate Riley’s, so she would have a happy place to go to while going through her battle with breast cancer. With the help of two regulars Dave Rupar and Kim Pierwola, on 11/09/2020 they started decorating Riley’s with Yoon leading the way. On 11/13/2020 Yoon had her cancerous cells removed from her breast. Four days later, while recovering, she came back in to put the final touches on decorating. Each day she would come in and add something new and festive. Each Year since, she continues to lead the way in decorating the restaurant, bringing Miracle at Riley’s to life.
