St John’s Bar and Eatery is bringing the coolest pop-up dining experience this winter – quite literally! Immerse yourself in an igloo and enjoy the finest seasonal offerings until the end of July.

Pairing the beauty of Wellington’s waterfront with plush seating sorts out your next date night. St Johns venue manager Brian Hanrahan is excited to once again, make outdoor dining accessible at any time of the year. 

“We are synonymous with al fresco dining in the warmer months so giving people a chance to get out and enjoy the very best of the outdoors all year-round is pretty special.”

With your own cosy private sanctuary, you can begin your night with a toasty cocktail. The options are absolutely irresistible, with some creative takes on classic choices in the mix.

St John's Igloos are the perfect cosy date night venue.

Indulge in a shared feast, with a selection of meats, cheeses and dips kicking things off. With additions of the fruit, nut and cracker variety – this charcuterie sounds like serious business.  

The main course doesn’t look to disappoint either, offering a variety of meat and vegetarian options. Enjoy anything from a sirloin to the catch of the day alongside roasted vegetables, fresh salad and green beans. Hearty yet healthy! 

As always, there’s room for dessert. Enjoy some toasty churros and hot chocolates to round off your night.

Warm up with a toasty hot chocolate in the igloos.

Wellingtonians are amped for this annual instalment. Hanrahan urges early bookings to secure a spot.

“Our igloos are booked out weeks – sometimes months – in advance and we know this year won’t be any different. We can’t wait to welcome locals and visitors back outside for winter – wind, rain, hail or shine we’ll be bringing star gazing and delicious grazing to the city’s waterfront”.

Gather the gang and make a booking on the St Johns website before you miss out!
