Buffalo has a ton of options for outdoor dining in the summer, but when it comes to the  winter months, you’re forced inside to avoid the chilly temps. Unless of course, you’re into outdoor winter activities, in that case, carry on. For others who would like to admire snowy Buffalo without having to experience it,  roll in the heated igloo. Yes, thanks to some places downtown, you can enjoy being close to the outdoors without the freezing part that comes with being outside. We rounded up all the igloos in the area bringing the bubble oasis to Buffalo. Here’s how you can book one and what’s included:



1. Tappo Restaurant (Ellicott St.)

338 Ellicott St, Buffalo, NY 14203

Situated on the roof of Tappo restaurant downtown with panoramic views of the city, these igloos need to be on your winter bucket list. Gather eight of your friends for dinner. The basic package includes a choice of two bottles of wine, a warm beverage (like mulled wine or spiked hot cider), a choice of a tossed or caesar salad, a choice of two entrees and dessert platter. Packages range from $375-$600 with add-ons as well.
