The igloos are back.
The Envoy Hotel’s Lookout Rooftop and Bar is again offering six heated rooftop igloos this winter so customers won’t have to miss out on sweeping views of the city’s skyline and harbor while sipping cocktails during the cold months. The igloos, which debuted last winter, will be open through April 16, 2018.
They measure 12 feet across and are made of weatherproof plastic so you can sit inside and still see outside. Each one is furnished with chairs and a table that seats eight to 10 people, and contains fleece blankets for guests to “up the cozy factor,” according to the hotel’s website.
Thirsty guests need only push a button from inside the structure and the igloo lights up to request a cocktail server. Food is not served inside the igloos; for meals, guests must head downstairs to the hotel’s Outlook Kitchen & Bar.
The igloos are open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 4 to 10 p.m. They are offered on a first come, first served basis, so the bar recommends arriving early. Guests can also reserve the igloos for a period of two hours for private parties for up to 10 people.
