This holiday season, award-winning oceanfront hotel Prince Waikiki will partner with Miracle Bar’s Sippin’ Santa, making it the first time the state of Hawai’i has hosted a Miracle Bar pop-up. The hotel will turn its outdoor space into a tiki-themed winter wonderland furnished with both classic and Hawai’ian-inspired holiday decorations. The exclusive holiday cocktail event will be open Dec. 1–31, daily 4–10 p.m.
“We are so excited to be the first-ever Miracle Bar location in the State of Hawai’i and we are thrilled to welcome kama’aina and our guests this holiday season at Sippin’ Santa at Prince Waikiki,” said Joshua Hargrove, general manager, Prince Waikiki.
Prince Waikiki will be decked out in festive décor with a green and red hibiscus flower garland of string lights forming a sparkling tunnel entrance, stockings, holiday lanterns and tiki sculptures to complement the holiday cocktail menu. Some of the drinks featured will include Azul Navidad (tequila, mezcal, lime, cream of coconut, hazelnut liqueur, pineapple rum and blue curacao); Yule Log Grog (gin, falernum, ginger liqueur, cranberry syrup and lime); and the signature Sippin’ Santa (aged demerara rum, gingerbread mix, lemon, orange and amaro). The pop-up bar will also feature classic holiday cocktails like a White Russian Christmas as well as syrup recipes to elevate any cocktail.
Miracle Bar started in 2014 in New York City as a Christmas-themed pop-up cocktail bar and has become a holiday favorite for visitors across the country. The pop-up event at Prince Waikiki will not only be the first time it has appeared in Hawai’I, but also will mark the first time it has opened a location in the South Pacific. The goal of each Sippin’ Santa, wherever it may appear across the world, is to bring holiday spirit, professionally made cocktails, and family and friends together.
Since Cheval Blanc, an extraordinary, newly designed and refurbished 72-room hotel owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, launched in September 2021, it has been the talk of the town. Le Tout-Paris remarks about its WOW factor … and the hard-to-get reservations for the 30 seats at Plenitude, the intimate, first-floor gastronomic outlet headed by chef Arnaud Donckele, who earned three Michelin stars at Cheval Blanc Saint Tropez. Reservations are also recommended for Limbar, the ground-floor bakery/café/tea shop/bar where we watched Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric preparing desserts and an absolute must-have for dinner at Le Tout-Paris, the 7th-floor, all-day brasserie. This brightly colored space, with its raised seating and Fauve-like floor tiles and the adjacent Milanese restaurant, Langosteria, both have access to terraces facing the Seine River, with amazing views encompassing Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
