2019 is the year all our winter dreams come true, apparently. It started when we found out there would be 6 (count 'em!) tree lightings around town, then came more than 50 festive events for nearly each day of December during Christmas in Newport, and now: an igloo pop-up at Gurney's Newport Resort and Marina.

The seaside resort overlooking Narragansett Bay and the Newport Bridge has launched multi-sensory themed igloos where you can savor a festive cocktail or assorted snacks while overlooking the bay. Each igloo is heated and has its own theme-specific games and music alongside a signature cocktail pairing.

 

As for the themes:

 

SANTA'S WORKSHOP

Conjure your Christmas spirit inside the Santa's Workshop igloo where twinkling decor, plush blankets, and a mailbox for Santa set the winter wonderland mood.

 

SIGNATURE COCKTAIL PAIRING: SOUTH POLE HOT COCOA

Vodka, peppermint schnapps, Corso hot chocolate, house made peppermint marshmallow and candy cane crumble.
