Uniquely Baton Rouge: ‘Miracle on Bennington’ holiday cocktail pop-up now open at The Station


BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at The Station Bar & Grill in Baton Rouge.

“We’re in full theme here at the Station Sports Bar and Grill” said Emily Graham. “We are ‘Miracle on Bennington at the Station’ now through December 29”

The international Christmas themed pop-up bar phenomenon known as ‘Miracle’ claims to be able to get even the grouchiest Grinch in the holiday spirit.

“After everything that went on in 2020, Baton Rouge really needs Miracle now” Graham said. “Before you step in you realize that you’re walking into a train… the Station is two box cars and a caboose so that’s pretty unique on its own. Then you walk in and you see wall to wall Christmas decorations everywhere” said Graham.

“We have about 100 strands of 12 foot garland pinned up there with tens of thousands of staples, lights are everywhere, we have about 8 Christmas trees. The allure of Miracle on Bennington at the Station is the Instagram moment. Being able to come in here and take pictures in front of all of the dazzling decor and sparkling lights, but what keeps people here are the Christmas cocktails”.

Specialty cocktails accompany the bar’s regular menu and while the atmosphere might make you feel like you’re at the North Pole, even Santa and his elves know the importance of staying socially distant and wearing masks.

“The good part is, you’re able to come in here and feel completely comfortable” Graham said. “You can totally spread out in here. We have 100 seats in here where you can get with your group of friends, find a spot to mix and mingle and feel safe” she said.

“Bringing in Miracle, even though it’s surrounded in so much uncertainty allows our team to be in here and be completely in theme and have fun” said Graham. “When you come in here you kind of forget about everything that kind of brought you down in 2020”.

The Station is open Monday-Saturday from 5:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. Reservations are not accepted. Miracle lasts through December 29. For more information, click here.
