[Image via Facebook]

For the fifth consecutive year, Miracle on Ninth Street — a Christmas inspired pop-up bar — is open for the season (as of yesterday) inside Mace, the cocktail bar at 649 E. Ninth St. at Avenue C.

And what started on Ninth Street is now worldwide. Per Facebook:

Miracle Owner/Cocktail Kingdom Founder & CEO Greg Boehm, Beverage Director Nico de Soto, and Manager Joann Spiegel have partnered with over 80 renowned bars (and counting!) across the world to launch sister pop-ups in cities as far-flung as London, Panama, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, and many more.

Miracle on Ninth is open through Dec. 24, with the following hours: 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Friday and 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Cocktail specialist looking to take over Double Wide on 12th Street

Cocktail specialist Greg Boehm is on tonight's CB3-SLA committee docket for a new liquor license for 503-505 E. 12th St. — the current home of Double Wide.

Boehm, the founder of Cocktail Kingdom, a manufacturer and distributor of professional barware, is a partner in the cocktail bar Mace on Ninth Street and Boilermaker on First Avenue.

According to the public documents on the CB3 website (PDF here), the unnamed bar-restaurant would have proposed hours of 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday; until 3 a.m. Thursday-Saturday. (The outdoors space in the back would be open from 5-9 p.m. daily.)

The sample menu on the questionnaire features small plates and "not so small plates," with items like oysters on the half shell, moles frites and a tuna baguette...

... a contrast to the current menu at Double Wide, which serves chicken-fried steak and Frito pie, among other things.

The questionnaire describes this as a sale of assets. If this all goes through, then this would mean the end of Double Wide, which opened here between Avenue A and Avenue B in late 2011.

Two previous bars in this space, Mundial and Totem, were especially problematic, according to nearby residents.

CB3's SLA committee meets tonight at 6:30 in the Public Hotel, 17th Floor, Sophia Room, 215 Chrystie St. between Houston and Stanton.

Louis 649, the 14-year-old cocktail bar, closed last fall at 649 E. Ninth St. just west of Avenue C.

Louis proprietor Zach Sharaga sent out a status update this week:

Louis 649 is currently undergoing a transformation to Mace, a great new cocktail bar opening very soon. I partnered with Greg Boehm and Nico de Soto on this project and we're all very excited and hope to see you when we start shaking cocktails next month.

Last December, the owners opened a holiday-themed pop-up bar called Miracle on Ninth Street in the space.

As for Mace, their website isn't live yet. But they are on Facebook and Twitter.
