Igloos on the Pier 2021
Igloos are popping up at Pier One again — and this year, they're surrounded by light-up cherry blossom trees.
Pier One's harbourfront igloos are back. And, this year, they're offering a particularly dazzling place to enjoy Sydney's winter. Those hankering after waterside drinks will be able to get sipping in a lit-up space, with one igloo surrounded by with cherry blossom trees adorned with light globes.
In case you're wondering, the igloos aren't made of snow and ice. They're transparent dome-shaped structures that you can hire for yourself and up to nine mates (socially distanced, of course). You will need to be willing to indulge in a few cocktails, glasses of champagne and snacks — choosing between canapes, grazing boards or a barbecue.
To hire out the cherry blossom igloo, you have to spend $400–700 on food and drinks for your 2.5-hour session, and pay a $200–300 hire fee. The minimum spend and hire price changes depending on the day and time.
You can hire out the igloos daily, from 12–2.30pm, 3.30–6pm or 7–9.30pm, until Sunday, August 29. And if you opt for the latter time slot from Friday–Sunday, you'll need to add on a compulsory night's stay in the suite for an extra $350 — which includes overnight accomodation for two, plus breakfast and parking.
