The winter chill is starting to set in across Sydney, which means it's time to bust out your warmest winter woolies once again. Happily enough, to coincide with the start of winter, a heap of private igloos are popping up across the city so you can get your winter escape without even having to leave the big smoke.

You'll soon find pop-up winter wonderlands across Sydney as Surry Hills' The Winery and Darling Harbour's Cargo Bar are set to bring back their popular igloos from June.

Head to The Winery between Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, September 26, and you can chill out in your wintry bubble with up to seven of your mates. For $50 per person, you'll get a hearty winter set menu for you and your buddies to share featuring olives, Sydney rock oysters, ricotta and pine nut ravioli, The Winery's sausage rolls, baked camembert and a triple chocolate brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Want to take things up a notch? You can add on two hours of unlimited booze for an additional $39 a head. To book, just head over to The Winery's website.

If you're keen to kick back in a waterfront igloo, head to Cargo Bar instead. Here, 90 minutes inside a fairy light-lit dome will cost you $59 a head — and includes four tasty dishes and endless drinks, with a choice of beer or wine, and the option to add an espresso martini into the mix for $10. For food, you'll be feasting on mac and cheese balls, birria tacos, buffalo wings and margherita pizza. Hit up the Cargo Bar website to book a spot between Thursday, June 17 and Sunday, September 26.

The phenomenon of pop-up winter igloos has been growing in recent years, with igloos currently also occupying Pier One, as well as a bunch of venues down in Melbourne.

Private igloos are available to hire at The Winery from Saturday, June 8 and Cargo Bar from Thursday, June 17.
