Wintry Vibes at Customs House Igloo Huts

Wintry Vibes at Customs House Igloo Huts

Chilly Nordic feels right on the Brisbane River

By Siobhan Taylor | 15th May 2017

When you live in a subtropical city the winters can be a little boring, which is why we love any opportunity to indulge in a little chilled, wintry fun. Cue: the Absolut Vodka igloo pop-up bars at Custom House!

These winter wonderland-esque igloo bars have popped up along the Brisbane River and are bringing us some serious Nordic-chill vibes that we absolutely love. In partnership with Absolut Vodka, Customs House is welcoming the winter season with the ultimate winter getaway, right in Brisbane City: a pop-up igloo hut bar! With Nordic-style faux furs, deep armchairs, and fresh Scandinavian décor, these igloos feel like a northern-European dream that will surely have you remembering your last European adventure (or planning your next!).

The tundra effect is mirrored in the drinks menu, which includes a stellar selection of wintry-cocktails (built upon the signature Absolut vodka and Spiced Absolute Winter speciality), carefully selected wines, frothy beers, and spirits. The Arctic vibes wouldn't be complete without a killer menu, so you'll be pretty psyched to know there will be decadent cheese platters, hearty venison stew, baby kransky with sauerkraut, and indulgent chocolate fondue (complete with strawberries and marshmallows).
