For one night only, they are getting an Igloo weighing two tonnes onto the 72nd floor of Europe’s tallest building and 400 of London most adventurous singles will ascend 800ft to the coolest party in town. It’s going to be a logistical feat par excellence. The Shigloo – as some folks have started calling it – will form the centrepiece of the World’s Highest Urban Ice bar.
Expect DJ’s and expect awe inspiring views across town as you watch the sun set over panoramic views of the London skyline from the cosy 5ft tall, two tonne igloo created by internationally renowned ice artist Percy Salazar – decked out for comfort with blankets.
So quick, grab yourself a Wingman or a Wingwoman and jump on a ticket.
