Newport on the Levee's Kon-Tiki at Bridgeview Box Park is transforming into the Fire Lounge this winter, cozying up their space with heated igloos and winter tiki-themed cocktails. 

Beginning Friday, Nov. 20, the lounge will offer six reservable igloos that welcome up to eight guests and are rented for a two-hour period (three hours during the weekend day). The igloos, which overlook the Cincinnati skyline, come equipped with your own sound system, board games, blankets, bluetooth speakers, lounge seating, contactless ordering and adjustable heat controls. 

The igloos require a $100 minimum spend for weekday nights and weekend days; $200 for weekend nights. They require guests to be on one tab, and a 20% gratuity will be added.

According to the site, the Fire Lounge will have special tiki-inspired winter and themed drinks and snacks to enjoy during your visit. 

Domes are sanitized in between reservations. 

“We’re so excited to offer our guests a year-round experience in a traditionally seasonal location. Newport on the Levee has created such a special destination with all of the plans in store for visitors, and we’re so grateful to be able to participate," said >Guy Ulam, General Manager of Kon-Tiki’s Fire Lounge in a press release.

If igloos aren't your thing, the Bridgeview Box Park plans to cover and heat a portion of their outdoor space to keep their guests warm and safe. 

The fun doesn't stop there, though. Guests can head to The Exchange, a new artisan market taking over the space formerly held by Barnes & Noble at Newport on the Levee, beginning Nov. 14 to explore 11,000 square-feet of local craftspeople, makers and indie merchants this holiday season. The market will also be buzzing with entertainment and activities including a slew of "festive experiences" like cookie decorating workshops, holiday-themed fitness classes, Santa story time and happy hours.
