Winter is here and Arlo Hotels and Shackleton Whisky are transporting guests and locals to Arlo Arctica. The immersive winter pop-up at Arlo NoMad and Arlo SoHo mirrors the rugged atmosphere of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s legendary 1907 Antarctica expedition to The South Pole. There are fun cocktails on the menu showcasing Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch Whisky and much more.
Arlo Arctica is a celebration of this fabled story. The installation at Arlo NoMad and at Arlo SoHo will be up all season long through March 2019 . Highlights include heated ice huts 31 stories above the city streets, on-the-hour snow flurries, and a cozy winter den featuring a fireplace and shearling blankets for the ultimate winter escape.
Guests can order from the exclusive Arlo Arctica menu, offering carefully-curated Shackleton Whisky cocktails, like the 88 Degrees South (made with lemon, lime and Angostura bitters) and Royds Toddy (made with Earl Grey tea, lemon and cloves), as well as a South Pole Pizza with Béchamel sauce, onions, Fontina and pancetta
For a spectacular winter experience, guests are encouraged to make reservations 31 stories up at the hotel’s rooftop bar, The Heights , which features two “ice huts,” cozy winter accents, bottle service, heaters, and an unparalleled view of the Empire State Building.
“Arlo’s goal is to create an imaginative platform that inspires exploration for our guests,” said Javier Egipciaco, Managing Director of Arlo Hotels. “Arlo Arctica is an unexpected but authentic experience, challenging the preconceived notions of a city hotel stay. We’re thrilled to be able to offer this unique pop-up in partnership with Shackleton Whisky.”
To enjoy Arlo Arctica now, visit Arlo NoMad at 11 East 31 Street, and beginning Dec. 1, head to Arlo SoHo at 231 Hudson Street. Those wanting to experience a stay can book the Arlo Eats package, which includes a $25 food and drink credit daily. To make a reservation or learn more about the hotels, visit www.arlohotels.com .
