Magical igloo bars have returned to Sydney's harbourside, just in time for Vivid's kick off this week.
Just like last year, you can thank Pier One Sydney Harbour for the downright genius idea. Among the luxury igloo tents on offer is a hot tub igloo and "Winter Luxe" igloo with cocktails, champagne and space for up to 20 of your mates. This year, they've dropped a few new versions too. Rivaling the coolest Airbnb stays is an igloo sleepover experience, set up on the balcony of one of the hotel's suites where you can sip champagne as the sun sets over Walsh Bay.
If you're after a true winter vibe, the "Snow Globe" igloo features a snow machine and wintery lighting.
And last but not least, Pier One has collab'd with The Gantry head chef Thom Gorringe to create a private dining experience for six, featuring a seasonal menu showcasing sustainable and ethical produce.
