The most jolly pop-up bar, The Miracle Bar has returned for the second year to the Kimpton Hotel Marlowe in East Cambridge.  The holiday bar will be open until Christmas Eve and will feature a full menu of inventive holiday cocktails.  We have a feeling Miracle Bar at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel is Santa approved.
