WORTH THE DRIVE: Dining in an igloo is next-level cool

Do as the penguins do — just eat tastier food while you do it. 

Atop the AC Hotel by Marriott Dublin at 6540 Riverside Drive in Dublin is a whole new dining experience inside temperature-controlled igloos. 

The igloos are a part of the rooftop Vaso restaurant that serves a full menu of Spanish food and fine cocktails. Each igloo is made of PVC pipe and seats six, according to a Columbus Dispatch article.  Customers can be certain they’ll be toasty as they dine, as the domes are heated and the fur-covered chairs are draped with blankets.

Vaso’s outside seating is normally closed during winter months. However, the igloos give visitors the chance to enjoy the Scioto River from above until the end of March.

Reservations are $100 per hour Sunday through Wednesday, according to General Manager Orcun Turkay, unless the table spends at least that amount on food, drinks and bottle service. Weekend evenings, Thursday through Saturday, are twice as expensive, at $200 an hour. The table must be on one check and there is a gratuity of 20 percent applied to every bill. 

Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant at 614-698-2525 or online here.
