Why do we need igloos in a city without ice? It’s a mystery. But are they cool? Hell yes they are; and in these times of social distancing, dining in a private igloo sounds more appealing than ever, which is why we're pretty stoked that a heap of bars and pubs around Brisbane have launched them in preperation for winter drinking and dining.
That's right, now you can embrace the chill of Brisbane inside your very own private igloo, underneath twinkling fairy lights at The Wickham, Cleveland Sands Hotel, Bribie Island Hotel, Kenmore Tavern and Springlake Hotel. Depending on the hotel, you can cosy up with 2–6 people and feast on a three course ‘feed me’ meal, with plenty of drinks of course. Our pick is The Wickham, where $35pp will get you a cocktail on arrival and a delish Mexican feast to share in your own private igloo, with 1.5 hours to enjoy it.
Bookings are available for lunch and dinner at The Wickham, Cleveland Sands Hotel, Bribie Island Hotel, Kenmore Tavern and Springlake Hotel, but you're going to want to get in quick because spaces will fill up fast. We're also not above bribing someone to give us their bookings slot...
So, what are you waiting for? Break out the winter woollies and tee up your very own igloo for a night. You can find more information here.
