Birmingham’s latest cocktail bar is an igloo

Here’s the igloo that a Birmingham hotel has built to stop drinkers having to endure red noses and chattering teeth as temperatures drop.

The Park Regis hotel on Broad Street has installed the cosy dome on its outdoor terrace.

It comes with complete with snug throws, comfy seats, twinkly lights and a faux fire to keep guests toasty as they enjoy a tipple under the stars.

The transparent dome is available to visitors on a first come, first serve basis with no need to book and there’s currently no minimum spend.

It seats eight people comfortably and guests can enjoy waiter service too.

“With winter coming, we wanted to offer guests a place where they can enjoy the outdoors under the comfort of a blanket with a mulled wine or hot chocolate to hand and the stars above,” said Mark Payne, general manager at Park Regis Birmingham.

The secret igloo follows the success of the hotel’s Park Plage in the summer, which saw the terrace transformed into a beach area complete with sand, complimentary flip-flops and deck chairs for guests to make the most of the sunshine.

“Our terrace is one of very few unique outdoor spaces in the heart of the city and we like to get creative with how we use it,” continued Mark.

“The Park Plage was really popular and we hope visitors will enjoy our new igloo just as much.”

Park Regis Birmingham offers a seasonal Happy Hour menu, available every day from 4pm to 7pm.

The menu includes Sailor Jerry & Hot Chocolate, Baileys Pumpkin Spiced Martini, Americana and Snow Man for just £5 each.
