Diners in Northern Liberties can now treat themselves to a new unique eating experience this winter.
In partnership with Glu Hospitality, Figo Ristorante, located on N. 2nd Street, recently launched its igloo dining option, which allows up to eight patrons to enjoy their meals in one of seven clear, weather-proof domes outside Figo.
Glu previously helped organize a similar dining experience at Germantown Garden Grille this past year, which proved to be very successful. The igloos will be available for use throughout the entirety of the winter season.
“Glu Hospitality is proud to bring back a brand-new Igloo outdoor dining experience just in time for the holidays,” said Glu co-owner Derek Gibbons in a press release. “We are back with an elevated experience that will provide the best heated, winterized and most festive outdoor views in the city.”
The domes, which are nearly 12-feet wide and made up of sustainable and recycled panels, protect diners from the winter wind and cold. Each comes equipped with holiday-themed decor and table-top fire pits.
To go along with the igloos, Glu also announced its Enchanted in Northern Liberties: Princess Lunch experience. Over the course of the 90-minute show, kids of all ages are treated to visits to their igloos by their favorite princess characters and also get to take part in socially distanced photo opportunities.
“We are thrilled to continue to support our neighbors and other businesses, while we expand our reach beyond nightlife, beyond dining and cocktails, and continually expand with unique experiences for all ages,” Gibbons said.
