Now a regular installment on Brisbane's winter social calendar, Customs House's annual winter igloo bars have returned to their famed riverside spot—just in time for the cool change. This year, 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 are positioned right along the riverside. All befit with luxe faux furs, comfy armchairs and Aspen-style decor, a stint inside will whisk you away to a cabin in the mountains rather than sub-tropical Brisbane.
The menu this year has a Queensland take on winter, featuring a selection of hand-crafted cocktails featuring Veuve Clicquot, plus hand-picked wines, beers and spirits that match the wintery vibes, and food-wise, you can’t go past the indulgent ocean trout toasties and citrus-poached Moreton Bay Bug croissants.
Champagne, hearty winter feeds and a cosy igloo to yourself, what a way to spend those chilly wintery eves. So, break out the knitwear and make a beeline for Brisbane’s pop-up igloo bars.
