The popular holiday themed pop-up bar headed up by Ted Charak, Ted Kilgore and Jamie Kilgore of Planter’s House is returning this year with a new location in Benton Park at Indiana & Lynch. According to city records the historic corner building was built in 1886. The bar will open on Black Friday and continue through New Year’s Eve.

A look inside the first floor window shows a way to go before the space is ready for it’s debut at the end of the month. A liquor license hearing is schedule for Next Wednesday November 15th. Miracle started in Manhattan in 2014 and has since expanded to over 50 franchise locations across the country. Jamie Kilgore told St. Louis Magazine this year’s St. Louis location will be “smaller and more reservations-oriented” than the previous space on Chouteau.

    We’ve had Ted Kilgore & an architect at Benton Park Neighborhood Assoc. meetings — there’s been talk about the permanent Kilgore establishment being named “Small Change”, after the Tom Waits album, and possibly having vending machines. That’s about all the info I have. Glad to see this & the license application might kick start the full time spot into fruition.

    I have a building close to here and got a letter from an attorney saying that the owners of planters house were opening a bar here and I think it had a name which was not “miracle” but I cant recall the name. so maybe there is something planed after this pop-up

    • The company name listed on the liquor license application is “Rain Dogs, LLC”. Was that it?

        The photo also shows that the hearing is on a summer garden permit. that seems material.

      I’d heard long ago that Kilgore was putting something in there. Is it possible that this pop up jump starts that. Pure speculation. Would be great.
