Sip on seasonal cocktails in your own personal snow globe!
When the global pandemic forced restrictions on indoor dining over the last couple of years, restaurants, bars, and hotels across Chicago scrambled to winterize their outdoor spaces. The result was an array of astoundingly revamped patios, beer gardens, and rooftops across the city.
Rooftops in particular offered some magic winter dining options around Chicago and one such highlight was the winter wonderland that emerged at the award-winning Godfrey Hotel in River North.
Boasting Chicago’s largest indoor-outdoor rooftop with a retractable roof, the luxury lifestyle hotel installed communal booths and signature heated igloos of different sizes to provide guests with a whimsical winter wonderland up among Chicago’s skyline becoming one of the most popular winter drinking destinations.
Yesterday, the rooftop began welcoming guests into its winter wonderland set up offering Chicagoans the chance to resume rooftop season into the winter with their sensational snug skyline escape.
Thanks to the heated, clear-domed igloos covering the rooftop’s portico, and several firepits stationed beneath gazebos guests can cozy up with a cocktail, s’mores, and sweeping skyline views once again.
Like last year, there will be frequent fire dancing, live DJs, and unique seasonal snacks all beneath the city lights throughout the winter months. The Windy City might be about to plummet to teeth-chattering temperatures but at the city’s only year-round rooftop lounge guests shelter from the winter elements in style.
Smaller igloos seating up to 6 people must prepay for at least one bottle to secure their reservation whilst reservations for the larger igloo must prepay a deposit of $500 which will then be taken off the final bill. Due to high demand igloos are available for a maximum duration of two hours.
The Godfrey Hotel rooftop is open until 11 pm Monday to Friday and until 9 pm on Sundays. Igloos can be reserved via exploretock.com/iogodfrey/, by calling 312 374 1830, or by emailing email@example.com.
