You’ll Melt for The Watergate’s Cozy Rooftop Igloos

The Watergate Hotel brought back a fun, wintertime attraction: cozy igloos! They're not technically made of ice, but these clear-walled domes on the terrace of the hotel's The Next Whisky Bar ooze snugly feelings.

Want to go all-out for a very special date? Rent the igloo and indulge in a menu of igloo bites including a cheese board, crab fritters and a ribeye to share. For more friendly nights, you could order drinks and snacks from The Next Whisky Bar, or try some of the hookah or cigar options.

Cute touches like stockings and faux-fur rugs complete the igloos' looks.

During their inaugural season, the igloos came in two varieties: winter, with a white color scheme, and romantic, with red hues.

Roses and champagne? Looks like Valentine's Day already! Last season, the Watergate offered "Seduction" packages start at $375 for Canard Duchene Rosé and go up to $1000 if you like to drink Dom Pérignon Rosé for Cupid's holiday.
