Pop-up Christmas bar spreads holiday spirit in South Bend
SOUTH BEND, Ind. –
One South Bend restaurant is branching out in the city’s East Bank neighborhood.
Friday, the owner of Render Kitchen opened up a pop-up bar down the street at neighboring business, the General Café, mixing Christmas and cocktails.
“Great Christmas music, great cocktails, great hospitality, come down, have a drink, have fun,” said Bryan Robertson, owner of the Miracle. “Black Friday is coming and people are ready to have a drink. Why not do it in the holiday theme?”

The General was transformed into a winter wonderland just one day after Thanksgiving.
It’s a miracle.
Well, that’s the name of this popular pop-up bar.
“I was in New Orleans for a cocktail conference and we were asked to represent the Indiana market,” said Robertson.
The Miracle pop-up bar is a tradition in 54 locations around the globe and 48 in the U.S.
Robertson chose the General Café to launch this merry mission, in the hopes more people will see the unlimited opportunities available in a city on the rise.
“South Bend has just been a great place to help grow. We love it here,” said Robertson.
The bar will stay open until December 24.
