The holiday season has begun! The city is finally brimming with winter-themed activities to match the spirit (and chilly temperatures) of the moment, and now there’s a new wintry pop-up to be in the know about.
This year, the stylish Hoxton hotel in Williamsburg has launched a Winter Hideaway experience where you and your friends can dine in your very own gorgeous glass house in a courtyard. Oh, you fancy, huh.
Inside the festive houses, you’ll find cozy blankets, holiday-themed treats, and a long dreamy table for you and your crew to pal around at while enjoying the family-style sharing menu. You can expect to find delicious bites to choose from like orecchiette with squash, walnuts, sage, truffle, brown butter and a wood-roasted beet salad with marinated figs, feta, pistachios, hibiscus vinaigrette—created just for the pop-up.
To make it the ultimate treat-yourself-evening, there are also options to add-on a cheese fondue set-up for six, a warm cookie spread for the table or—most enticing of all—a rotating selection of homemade pies like apple, s'mores, pecan and pumpkin. Hoping to warm up with a little booze? Opt for cocktail pairings, or flights, with the seasonal feast.
You can grab a table now through March for one of two seatings each night from 5pm-9pm, seven days a week. (Weekend brunch is set to become available in late November.)
When deciding on your glass house, keep in mind that the smaller hideaways seat six to eight people with a minimum spend of $500, clocking in at around $65-$85 per person without tax or gratuity. There’s also a larger option which seats up to 12, where you'll need to spend at least $750. That option calculates to about $65 per person before tax or gratuity.
You don’t need to fill every sit to have your own sweet hideaway, though the minimum remains the same. Consider this the ideal reservation for a killer birthday outing when it's too cold to think about bar-hopping or a great reunion spot to break your cabin fever when the weather drops below freezing.
