The rooftop bar features four heated igloos which seat up to 8 guests each. The "igloos" are not made of ice, rather a plasticy-transparent igloo-shaped structure, complete with warm blankets, pillows, LED lights and even an electric fireplace.

Reserving an igloo costs $30, with a minimum of $250 worth of food and drink. The reservation fee is non-refundable and does not go towards the food and drink minimum. 

Guests can expect a special wintery cocktail menu, featuring both warm and cold beverages such as mulled wine and spiked hot chocolate or The Banks Bellini and Southern Comfort cocktails. A specialty bites menu will also be available, offering many sharable bites like cheese or chocolate fondue, flatbread, s'mores, roasted butternut squash hummus and individual menu items like soup, and a pulled pork sandwich. 

Reservations can be made online and are available in increments of 2 hours; 5-7 p.m. or 7:30-9:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday; 4-6 p.m., 6:30-8:30 p.m. or 9-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. More time can be added for an additional fee and if available.

Reservation cancellations are required 24 hours ahead of reservation time. Late cancellations or no-shows are subject to a $100 fee and guests will not receive $30 reservation fee.
