The Lux Domes Are Back! Reservations Open Friday

These heated dome on top of Café Benelux will be opening on Nov. 25.

Just in time for the holiday season, the Lux Domes at Café Benelux will be back this year starting Nov. 25. This year, the six domes will be accompanied by a new Lux Winter Loft Bar – a heated tent and warming bar where guests can sit before and after their dome experience and enjoy a drink.

Reservations for the domes will go live to the general public Friday, Nov. 20. The package includes a private dome for up to eight guests (all must be 21+) for 90 minutes, a keepsake camp mug for each person to take home and a select beverage package of your choice.

There will be new food and beverage packages this year, including the Sweater Weather Mule Drink Package and the Mezze Platter, featuring fresh mozzarella, salami and baba ghanoush dip with veggies. Is your mouth watering yet? 

Cafe Benelux and the other Lowlands Group restaurants have sanitizing, disinfecting and cleaning processes in place. Additionally, staggered reservations will allow individual domes to be disinfected with a fog atomizer machine between dining groups. All outdoor structures are heated by industrial blowers that exchange 100% of the air every five to fifteen minutes.

For those who prefer a more traditional dining experience, the Lux Winter Porch on Broadway might be more intriguing. This space seats 20-25 diners, socially distanced, in a heated canopy that is open on both ends to allow air to circulate.

For more information and to make a reservation, head over to Café Benelux’s website.
