Joy District’s Revamped Rooftop Winter Wonderland Will Continue Through March

The snow must go on!

Joy District is an undisputed frontrunner when it comes to Chicago’s rooftop bars. Sparkling lights, comfortable patterned couches, and impeccable views of Chicago’s skyline create a stunning setting but it’s the magic of vibrant murals and cascading greenery that truly makes it stand out from the rest.

Long before a global pandemic was forcing hospitality across the nation to rethink and readjust, Joy District was pioneering the use of igloos to help keep guests warm during the winter months. Since their innovative hideouts returned in December, Joy District’s Magical Heated Igloos have been offering quarantine crews a safe and social escape from the doom and gloom.

Now, Joy District has once again raised the bar. With extended dates through March 11, the rooftop is offering even more magic in its newly revamped winter wonderland. The Rooftop Winter Igloos are no longer the only headliner on the heated rooftop retreat. A new Rooftop Winter Wonderland Experience offers a decked-out patio and a rentable Rooftop Ski Lodge where you can sip on mouthwatering signature cocktails and savor a scrumptious s’mores board!

With coronavirus instigating time limits in bars across Chicago at 3 hours you will find few places offering longer slots than Joy District. The igloos and ski lodge at the River North rooftop are to be enjoyed at a leisurely pace and provide a place where you can drink away in warmth and forget about your adult responsibilities. A packed menu providing fried chicken, burgers, pizza pies, and more, joins a selection of signature cocktails and bottle service.

2-hour reservations at the Heated Winter Wonderland Rooftop come with a holiday specialty cocktail and cost $30 per person with bookings of 4-6 people. While the igloos and the ski lodge require a deposit of $100 for a weekday booking and $200 for a weekend booking but these deposits will be deducted from the final food and beverage bill once the fun-filled three hours are up! Reservations sell out fast, so if an igloo in the sky or an alpine ski lodge experience sounds like your kind of adventure get booking now!
