A rooftop hotel bar in Boston's Seaport District is set up once again for the colder months, bringing back a rather unusual concept that had been in place for a short time earlier this year.
According to a web page from the spot, The Lookout at the Envoy Hotel has its "igloos" back in place from now until April of 2018, and as was the case over the past winter, they are heated and lit and with room for eight to ten people. The page says that blankets are provided for extra warmth, and that customers simply have to press a button which illuminates the igloo to get the attention of a server. A total of six igloos are set up at The Lookout, with hours being 4:00 PM through 10:00 PM Wednesday through Sunday on a first-come, first-served basis.
The page mentions that only drinks are offered in the igloos at this point in time, but that The Outlook downstairs offers food to patrons.
The address for The Lookout (along with The Outlook and the Envoy Hotel) is 70 Sleeper Street, Boston, MA, 02210.
