This winter, Barangaroo House is embracing the winter chill on all of its three levels. Today, July 3, the waterside venue launched Bring the Heat — a multi-storey winter wonderland with luxe rooftop igloos, spiced martinis, magnums of Champagne and fondue pots aplenty.

The outdoor terrace of Smoke (the venue's rooftop cocktail bar) is where you'll find those opulent igloos — they come complete with cosy cushions, blankets, hanging greenery and lanterns. Here, you can order cheese or chocolate fondue and baked truffle camembert straight to your igloo. For drinks, there's Champagne, hot bloody marys and 'cauldrons' of mulled wine that serve six. The igloos fit up to ten and can be booked for two hours — though you'll need to commit to a minimum spend of $500 (that's only $50 each if you round up your mates).

The best time to book is on weekends when bottomless Champagne and alpine-inspired snacks are on offer from noon–3pm — drink all the Champagne you can handle while enjoying wagyu bresaola, pork skewers, toasties and hot chips for a reasonable $95 all up. Or stop by right at 5pm on weekdays, when the first five 1.5-litre magnums of Veuve Clicquot will be sold for just $145 per bottle.

Over at Bea restaurant, Head Chef Tom Haynes is dishing up woodfired dishes — think charred tiger prawns or spatchcock chicken with green rice stuffing — alongside a selection of $10 mini martinis. If you're keen for the whole hog, book into one of Bea's winter wine degustations, which will take place on July 4, 17 and August 29. For $95–150 per person, you'll be treated to a feast and a few drops from winemakers Cullen Wines, Cloudy Bay and Michael Hall Wines.

And, down on the ground level, House Bar is offering its own range of spiced martinis, including a chilli choc espresso, a smoked rosemary and a spiced apple version. You'll be able to DIY garnishes and bitters with these, too.

All of these deals will only be available through to the end of August, though, so don't wait on it.
