Elevate your winter outings at VASO Rooftop Lounge, home of the igloos, where you can dine and sip in a life-sized snow globe atop the AC Marriot Hotel in Dublin. Don't sleep (or hibernate) on this - the igloos will be gone before you know it!
Read on for details on why VASO should be at the top of your winter bucket list this season:
This winter, travelers and locals can welcome the season with a feast of VASO's unparalleled tapas and handcrafted cocktails with stunning rooftop views - no matter the temperature. Even though the patio is closed, the seasonal igloos have officially made their return providing a life-sized, snow globe-like experience under the stars, complete with cozy fur-covered chairs, blankets, call pods and twinkling lights.
The details: Each igloo seats up to 8. Sunday - Thursday, there is a minimum per igloo of $300 for every two hours, that can be used toward food, drink, or bottle service. Friday - Saturday, $500 per two-hour minimum. One check and an automatic gratuity of 22% is applied.
Safety: Each igloo allows for social distancing and is cleaned between uses with electrostatic disinfection technology to ensure that every surface is fully sanitized.

Artisan Handcrafted Cocktails
The cocktail menu is out and spoiler alert, it’s a work of art. You never know, the bartender serving you the drink could be the one who invented it in the first place, as VASO encourages creativity among its staff. Here are our favorites from the new menu.
Figgin Good - Fig infused Bacardi spiced, Wild Turkey rye, Benedictine, fine sherry and lemon.
A Night in London - Ketel one vodka, ear grey tea, lavender vanilla honey, egg white, lemon and creme de cassis.
Frozen Peppermint Mocha - Cold brew coffee, Glenlivet reserve, bourbon cream and chocolate bitters.
Ope, Sorry - Watershed apple brandy, Watershed bourbon, Nocino, Orgeat, Cointreau, all spice and lemon.
Don’t worry – they still have your favorites including their signature Gin & Tonic, garnished to the nines with baby’s breath, orange peel and juniper berries.
There's never a lack of creativity on VASO’s menu, crafted under Executive Chef, David Belknap, and their fall offerings are no exception. Here are some of our favorites:
Their “Pan Con” section of the new menu features unexpected combinations served on top of thick-sliced toast. Sure, it’s carbs but you deserve it! We recommend the Spanish Grilled Cheese Sandwich or the Smoked Chicken Salad Croissant.
Brotes de Bruselas a La Caesar - brussels sprouts caesar salad, two ways. This “salad” is anything but basic.
Tempura Sweet Potato Tacos - white corn tortillas, cabbage slaw, and carbon cashew aioli (SO GOOD). Like these tacos, many of the new items are vegan, yet bursting with flavor.
VASO's Paella For Two - seafood paella, tiger shrimp, mussels, clams, squid, saffron rice.
Mini Tuna Tostadas - smoked tuna, pico de gallo, sesame sherry and rice crisps. Technically share-able, but you won’t want to!
