Igloo Bar At The Lookout Rooftop & Bar In The Seaport District

Igloo Rooftop Bar Boston

Looking to escape from the same old same? We’ve introduced a new concept that will help our guests brave the cold winter and springtime temperatures. Our Rooftop Igloo Bar is now open. Enjoy a few cocktails with friends as you look out at the city skyline. Rob Saunders, our general manager of The Envoy’s Outlook Kitchen and Lookout Rooftop & Bar said, “We wanted ways to utilize the rooftop and draw some attention to the hotel. We’re giving people an opportunity to be outside and drinking in the wintertime, and to do it in a kind of cool way. We’re definitely excited.”

The lit, heated “Igloos” are open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 4 to 10 p.m. While whole igloos can be reserved for private events, they’re primarily given out on a first-come, first serve basis, so you’ll want to arrive early to make sure one is available. There are a total of six igloos open for guests, with each one seating 8 to 10 people comfortably.  Since the bar is located inside the hotel, there’s a switch that will alert your cocktail server when you need more drinks.
