Boston will soon have even more space for outdoor dining in the Seaport District: The Envoy Hotel has expanded its rooftop setup to include even more space and a new drinks menu, along with a reservations-only lounge area.
The Lookout Rooftop & Bar (70 Sleeper St., Seaport District, Boston), with views of Downtown Boston and the harbor, adds close to 2,500 square feet with this expansion, which will also allow the hotel to host special events like rooftop yoga in addition to day-to-day operations. With a new capacity of 390 people, the roof will also include a seated VIP area called the Harbor Lounge, which will be available starting in July.
“Our goal was to create a space that is reflective of the transforming Seaport neighborhood around us, while also offering a year-round destination that guests can socialize while sipping delicious cocktails and taking in the unbeatable views of Boston,” the Envoy Hotel’s general manager Joe Mellia said in a release.
While rooftop bars are ideal summertime destinations, the Lookout bar has recently transformed itself into a winter venue as well, bringing in heated igloos that provide shelter from the cold and can fit up to 10 people.
Lookout’s cocktail menu also underwent a revamping, courtesy of mixologist Brian McDougall. New drink options include a sangria made with blush wine, peach schnapps, and pineapple juice, and a rum-based drink with lime juice, bitters, mint, and prosecco. In the summer, visitors can also find frosé and craft beer on the menu.
The Lookout rooftop will operate Monday through Wednesday from 4 to 11 p.m., Thursday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 12 a.m., and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.
