Igloos on the Pier 2022

Igloos are popping up at Pier One again — and this year, they're surrounded by lit-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 for waterside drinks will be able to get sipping in a lit-up space, with one igloo surrounded 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. You will need to be willing to indulge in a few cocktails, glasses of champagne and snacks — choosing between the snacks and shares menu, or the grazing menu. Highlights of the food menu includes Sydney rock oysters, Pioik sourdough, wagyu skewers and salmon tartar.

A range of canned cocktails will also be on hand, including espresso martinis from Archie Rose, negronis from Never Never Distillery and mai tais from Jacoby's Tiki Bar.

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 17. 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 accommodation for two, plus breakfast and parking.
