Want to combine your love for rooftop dining and a wintertime dome? Look no further. Cafe Benelux in Milwaukee propped up these charming spots on the roof of their popular restaurant in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. 

Each dome seats up to eight guests, promising an intimate dining experience. Although each dome has a small heater, dress warmly — layers are recommended — since the rooftop dome can get pretty chilly, even with the heater. You’ll have an hour and a half in your private dome, which features seating and a coffee table.

And it’s not just great food to get excited about – they created these igloos to include lounge space where you can relax with drinks and games like cribbage, and more.

Dress in layers, grab some friends, call and make some reservations and enjoy one of the coolest nights out you could ever imagine. They plan on having the igloos up through March and as long as this Wisconsin winter lasts.

We invite you to embrace the season and experience the fun and magic of The Domes at Belfrē Kitchen! These outdoor domes provide the perfect, private setting to gather, taste, and share a sense of ‘hygee’- comfort, warmth, & togetherness! Here you are able to pre-select your entire menu so that the courses are ready for your arrival and keep your timeframe on track. 

Upon arrival, your server will welcome you with complimentary sparkling wine as you settle in to enjoy pre-ordered appetizers. They will email you the most current menu in advance and you’re encouraged to consider entree options prior to arrival to maximize your dining experience. 

When dining in the heated domes, it’s smart to wear lighter layers, but heavy coats are not necessary. You can even embrace the ‘hygge’ by bringing a couple blankets from home.
