Stay Cozy at Boston's New Rooftop 'Igloo' Bar
For city-dwellers, summertime means sunny days and rooftop revelry. But in winter, all those breezy terraces with skyline views get shut down, thanks to colder temperatures and pesky inclement weather.
The Envoy Hotel in Boston, however, has come up with a seasonally-appropriate approach to drawing in rooftop drinkers: constructing "igloos" at their Lookout Rooftop & Bar—and keeping the party going despite the winter chill.

The futuristic-looking structures aren't actually made of ice, of course. Instead, they're build from lit-up plastic panels with heated interiors to keep patrons cozy. Revelers will be able to order cocktails by pressing a button for service, all while taking advantage of the unique perspective on a wintry city night in Boston's Seaport District.
This isn't the first time a rooftop bar has put up igloos for patrons; Manhattan's 230 Fifth has been going strong with its own little village of pop-up spaces in winter since 2014, a seasonal development that has proved popular over the years.
The Envoy, meanwhile, will have six igloos, each seating eight to 10 people at a time, and will be open only on weekends.
