Pier One's harbourfront igloos are back. And, this time, one of them has its very own hot tub. Yes, a hot tub. So if you've been hankering after wintry waterside drinks — but aren't quite willing to brave the cold — this should be a very viable option.
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 15 mates, as long as you're willing to indulge in a few cocktails, glasses of Champagne and snacks from the Igloos on the Pier menu (you have to spend $150 for one hour in the tub or $300 for three hours. The hire comes with fluffy robes, slippers and a change room, and regular non-hot tub igloos are available too.
During Vivid, the igloos are lighting up in blues, red and pinks. Plus, there's an installation inspired by the native Australian honey bee, which hopes to raise awareness of the creature's precarity.
