Their Winter Garden has transformed into a festive oasis with heated alpine yurts that will make you feel like you’re in the mountains as opposed to the bustling city.
This year’s pop-up draws inspiration from the rustic nostalgia of winter hideaways, with a psychedelic twist–oversized mushroom sculptures, kaleidoscopic colors, and neon trees contrast against the endless piney greens, resulting in an altered state of familiar nature meets out of the ordinary surprise.
The snug yurts are a great way to stay toasty during the winter, and once you’re comfortable you can dig into all the s’mores and spiked hot chocolate you’d like!
The menu in the yurts this year offers options such as smoked trout dip, wagyu sliders, chicken pot pies, and a short rib stew. After dinner nibbles include s’mores and a mint sponge cake that resembles a mushroom forest.
That said, you’ll also be able to sip on plenty of spirits to warm you on the inside with cocktail options such as hot aperol, spiked hot chocolate, spiked hot cider, beers, wine, and more.
These alpine-inspired tents can seat a group of 8-10, and must be reserved in advanced. If you still want to enjoy the Winter Garden but don’t want to commit to a yurt you can cozy up near one of the many holiday trees and warm up with a hot cocktail.
