Now a regular instalment on Brisbane's winter social calendar, Customs House's annual winter igloo pop-up has returned to its famed riverside spot. Once again, the beautiful igloos have had an Aspen-themed makeover and are being brought to you in collaboration with iconic champagne house Veuve Clicquot.

Each beautiful igloo has a very apres-ski vibe and is positioned right along the riverside, befit with luxe faux furs, comfy armchairs and Aspen-style decor. You can book one to have all to yourself for a minimum of six guests for an $80 per head deposit, so get a gang together and brave the cold. You can also just walk in and find a cosy seat by the river, of course—the apres-ski vibes aren't just inside the igloos.

Once you're cosied up and snuggled in under a blanket, you can sip on glasses of Veuve Clicquot NV or go all out with an entire bottle, as well as winter-worthy cocktails like the frosty Berries & Bubbles with fresh raspberry, lemon juice, Bombay Sapphire gin and St Germaine elderflower liqueur topped off with Veuve Clicquot.

The food menu this year is definitely winter-worthy, featuring whole baked brie stuffed with thyme and garlic served with crostini, mac and cheese croquettes, and the now iconic citrus-poached Moreton Bay Bug croissant with lime mayo.

Break out the knitwear and make a beeline for Brisbane’s pop-up igloo bar for champagne, hearty winter feeds and cosy igloos with loads of Insta-opps—it'll be around till the end of June.
