Cocktails, cozy blankets and igloos? Yes, please!
Winter and cozy season are coming to an end and cherry blossoms will soon be in full bloom but there’s still time to enjoy the many awesome winter set ups the city has to offer, including Watergate Hotel’s enchanting igloos!
The hotel’s Next Whisky Bar has officially inaugurated its winter season by installing incredibly cute snow globes out on the patio and we’re all about igloo dining now. These are perfect for anyone looking to go on a wintery night out and enjoy some cocktails and bites in your very own heated igloo.
On the igloo menu, you’ll find a wide range of small bites such as caponata with kalamata olived and pita chips, cheese and charcuterie boards, and arancini among other delectables. Drinks include craft cocktails as well as wine by the stem and of course the bars popular Whisky Flights trios.
You can also choose to order bottle service for drinks such as vodka, gin, bourbon and whisky which come with your own choice of mixers. Or if you have a tough time choosing you can always order their “Smoke Package” that includes the Next Whisky Bar’s Signature Whisky Burger — comprised of 50/50 hanger and brisket blend, house-made Bulleit bourbon cheese, brioche sesame roll & French fries — paired with their Watergate Signature Cigar that was co-created by NY Knicks legend John Starks and choice of whisky pairing.
Next Whisky’s dreamy igloos can be rented for 90-minute services, seven days a week starting at 4:30 p.m. These have both a rental fee and food and beverage minimum, which are based on the day and time of reservation and size of the party. Walk-ins are allowed on a first-come, first-serve basis on weekdays but reservations are required during the weekends.
The igloos will be around until Thursday, April 1, when the bar clears the way for its summer rooftop bar. For more information make sure to check out Next Whisky Bar’s website.
