230 Fifth Rooftop is bringing back its famous heated igloos

This year, the igloos are private for your group.

Winter is almost here, which means that NYC spaces are transforming into winter wonderlands including festive pop-ups.

The first to announce its annual pop-up was 230 Fifth, back with its wildly popular wintertime bubble tents for the season. Now the rooftop bar has combined outdoor movie nights with the beloved igloo tradition. On top of taking in panoramic skyline vistas during ice-cold New York months than in the privacy of your own heated igloo, your igloo can now include an old-fashioned fireplace with a television.

Each fully heated igloo can privately accommodate up to 10 guests of the same party for 2.5 hour sessions, where in the past, they placed separate parties into the same igloo. So, if you’re looking for an easy birthday party activity or a locale to host a holiday Kris Kringle that’s not in your living room, look no farther than these glowing orbs.

On weekends (Thursday to Saturday), no walk-ins are allowed this season, igloos must be reserved online in advance. During the week, igloos are strictly walk-in only with a minimum of four people per party. Masks are required upon entry, and each igloo will be sanitized between groups.

To lean into the chilly weather, you can warm up with boozy hot chocolate, the popular apple pie cider as well as a slew of other steamy drinks like mulled wine and Irish coffee. A brunch menu will also be available if you plan to hit up an igloo earlier in the day on the weekends.

230 Fifth is located at 230 Fifth Ave, Manhattan, NY 10001.
