Cool Off With Curling And Cocktails On The Gwen Hotel’s Luxury Rooftop

Did somebody say complimentary cocktails?

With a ban on indoor dining and the cold weather settling in, Chicago’s patios and rooftops have revamped themselves with igloos, firepits, and other winter dining solutions to offer an array of magical outdoor dining spots all over Chicago. The Gwen Hotel, however, has chosen a different path that combines winter sport and free drinks.

When you think of winter sports, ice skating, ice hockey, and skiing are usually the first that spring to mind. On a rooftop in the heart of Chicago, there might just be a new winter fad about to emerge and this one comes with complimentary cocktails.

Curling & Cocktails is an annual event held at The Gwen Hotel and it has returned once again for the winter season. The luxury hotel has kitted its rooftop out with not igloos, not ice skating, but an outdoor curling rink high in the sky.

45-minute curling sessions are $30 per person and come with a complimentary round of cocktails meaning you can sip away on your favorite tipple while battling your buddies. Curling is a team sport, originally from Scotland, whereby players use their finesse and accuracy to slide stones on a sheet of ice towards a target.

There will be raffles, ugly sweater competitions, and more during the Cocktails and Curling 2020–2021 season. For more information head over to The Gwen Hotel’s website.
