Look, it would hardly be winter in Sydney without those boujee-but-awesome private igloo bars—and yep, we can confirm they are making a glorious comeback this month.
Returning to the beautiful harbourside hotel that is Pier One, Igloos on the Pier takes your igloo bar experience to the next level. As well as specially designed menus beneath a canopy of twinkling fairy lights, these igloos have been perched on harbourside balconies directly beside the Sydney Harbour Bridge—giving you uninterrupted views of Sydney’s sparkly waters as you igloo it up.
This year, Pier One has also levelled up the styling of their igloo suites, partnering with Tara Milk Tea to create an all-white winter wonderland with super luxurious plush furnishings and stunning light-up cherry blossom trees.
As for what's to eat within your enchanting whimsical winter haven, you'll be able to order fancy canapes, hefty grazing boards, or even step things up a notch with your own private BBQ chef. To drink, you have a selection of classic cocktails like Espresso Martinis, Negronis, Margaritas, and more, alongside champagne, wine, and beer buckets too.
Keen to make a night of it? You can add on a night's stay at Pier One's dreamy suites for a discounted price of $350.
