Arlo Hotels and Shackleton Whisky have teamed up to bring the famed 1907 Shackleton Antarctica Expedition to life at Arlo SoHo and Arlo NoMad. The installation will be up all season long through March 2019. Highlights include heated ice huts 31 stories up at Arlo NoMad’s The Heights rooftop bar and a cozy winter den featuring a fireplace and shearling blankets in Arlo NoMad’s bArlo as well as a transformed courtyard with hourly snow fall at Arlo Soho.
Both pop-up concepts will of course include an exclusive Arlo Arctica menu, offering 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). Arlo NoMad’s activation will include a South Pole Pizza with Béchamel sauce, onions, Fontina and pancetta from Chef Dale Talde’s Massoni restaurant, and Arlo Soho’s will include snacks from Harold’s.
Arlo Arctica is perfect for anyone who wants to hang out outside this winter, friends getting together for drinks, and even for engagements/proposals (seriously — they have a few booked already!)
