CINCINNATI (Cincinnati Business Courier) - What do you do with a rooftop bar when it’s really cold? Build igloos.

That’s the solution AC Hotel Downtown Cincinnati at the Banks came up with for its Upper Deck rooftop bar. Instead of closing the space completely for the winter, the hotel has added four "igloos" so people can have rooftop drinks even in the snow.

AC Upper Deck claims to be the only rooftop bar in the region with heated igloos, which are not made of ice but are actually garden igloos. The igloos seat up to eight people with chairs, blankets, music and lights that are controlled with a remote control.

In addition to the igloos, there is a large communal fire pit guests can sit around before hopping back in their igloo. Portable heaters also surround those seats.

To take an inside look at the igloos and learn more about how they’re being used, subscribers can read the full story from the Cincinnati Business Courier.
