Just when we thought al fresco dining was closed up for the season in comes igloo dining—welcomed with open arms.

When it is a cold winter night—instead of staying indoors—enjoy a cozy, decorated, and heated igloo overlooking the bay with a prime view of sunset, paired with seasonal cocktails and creative menu. These cold-weather dining experience will keep you warm, and somewhat outside, until Spring.
