MIRACLE on Route 9: Dutchess County Tapas Spot to Host Viral Holiday Popup
While you'd have to travel to New York City to get the full 'Miracle on 34th Street' experience, a different type of miracle has popped up here in the Hudson Valley, and it's equally as holiday spirited!
Flores Tapas Bar Transforms into Miracle at Flores
Maybe you recognize the name Flores from having their catering over the years, eating at their food truck, or these days as a popular Tapas Bar on Rt. 9 in Wappingers, but through January 5th you can experience a completely different Flores.
Miracle at Flores, a Christmas-themed pop up bar serving up seasonal drinks with beautiful holiday decor and fun family events is currently running at the Flores Tapas Bar at 1659 Rt. 9 in Wappingers Falls.
Santas elves were busy earlier this month transforming Flores Tapas Bar as we know it into a winter wonderland miracle of sorts, check out their work below:
Specialty Events For Miracle At Flores Through January 5th
The Miracle at Flores season kicked off on November 9th, and runs through January 5th with great seasonal fun and offerings like festive glasses, ugly sweater parties, movie nights, and even the opportunity to give back this holiday season. Though not required, reservations are recommended for these specialty events.
Miracle has partnered with the Seva Foundation again this year to give back 10% of net proceeds from sales of their Santa Pants, Christmas Carol Barrel and Santa Heads mugs to this foundation that helps to 'build eye care programs that provide access to life-saving vision services for millions of people around the world.'
With regard to their movie showings, you can make plans to visit Flores for holiday favorites like Elf, Home Alone and A Christmas Story, and you can find a full list of dates and what's playing for Christmas Movie Nights 2023 - each movie has a 4:30PM and 7:30PM showing!
In speaking with owner Danielle Flores, she shared the following about this annual event:
Miracle at Flores is something we look forward to all year long! There’s something so magical about capturing and creating the best parts of Christmas for guests, community, and family. From the drinks that each taste like Christmas in a cup, to our crazy decked out restaurant, to the multiple charities we give as much as we can to, Miracle creates memories for everyone of all ages that we hope last a lifetime.
As the staff at Flores put it, 'Miracle at Flores is sure to get even the grouchiest grinch in the holiday spirit.'
