Six heated domes that have been installed atop Cafe Benelux in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward are set to open Friday, Nov. 30.

The new, winter-friendly concept, called Lux Domes, features private seating for up to eight people inside each of the fully-enclosed, transparent structures.

The domes can now be reserved for $200 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings for 90-minute time slots via the Lux Domes website. A reservation includes a complimentary round of seasonal drinks such as a hot toddy, mulled wine or hot cocoa, and souvenir mugs for the whole group.

All time slots currently available for reservation from Nov. 30 to Dec. 23 have been sold out, but Lowlands Groups plans to avail additional dates in response to demand. Those interested in reserving a dome after Dec. 23 can receive updates by subscribing to Lux Domes’ e-newsletter, the group said.

Lux Domes offers a menu with additional food and beverage offerings such as Colectivo coffee, champagne, and sharable platters of cheese, seafood and meat, which can be ordered with an additional cost.

The domes, which are 11 feet in diameter, are outfitted with an electric fireplace, along with benches, upright seats and a coffee table for lounge-style seating.
