Miracle at Marlowe

Melissa Hom

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear – make this year the cheeriest at The Kimpton Marlowe Hotel. Starting on Friday, November 24th, the Miracle at Marlowe is back in Cambridge with all the over-the-top Christmas decor, including everything from colorful ornaments hanging from the ceiling to stockings hung by the chimney with care.

Stop by the hotel lounge any night after 5:00pm for a warming winter cocktail and rock out to an unabashed array of Christmas carols. Bartenders will be decked out in ugly holiday sweaters and you can sip from an array of whimsical glassware (some of which is available for purchase). Even if you’ve been to Miracle in past years, you’ll still want to stop in for this year’s full North Pole experience as there’s a handful of new sips on Santa’s cocktail list to try including Carol Barrel, Koala Cooler, Marshmallows & Unicorns, and Rudolph’s Replacement (a T-Rex has bumped Rudolph from Santa’s reindeer line-up). There’ll also be some returning classics like Christmapolitan, Elfing Around #2, and Nice and Naughty Shots (check out the full list below). Plus if you need a nosh you can order some light bites from chef Adam Resnick’s crew at Bambara Kitchen & Bar.

Miracle is open every night from the day after Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve (closes at 10:00pm Sunday through Thursday, 11:00pm Friday and Saturday). If you want to wake up feeling like it’s Christmas morning you can even spend the night at the hotel for $349 per room (plus taxes). The Miracle package includes your room, a $50 credit towards dinner for two at Bambara, and two Miracle cocktails. If you have Qs about Miracle give the hotel a call at 617.395.2523 or drop them an email here. Check out pics of the winter wonderland throughout the season on their IG, and check your bah humbug energy at the door.
