The hotel’s rooftop cocktail garden has transformed into a winter wonderland and, starting today, will rent out three igloos for two-hour long champagne tastings.

Igloo bookings include a selection of specialty cocktails and a small-plate menu by executive chef Fernando Coppola. Each of the three igloos offers bubbly from either Dom Perignon, Veuve Clicquot or Moët & Chandon.
