Throw back a cold one in downtown Flint's new heated igloos

FLINT, Michigan — Flint’s nightlife is getting cozy.

Nestled along Second Street just off Saginaw Street are three new additions to the downtown Flint bar scene: Igloos. Table & Tap rolled out the igloos at Thanksgiving and the response has been overwhelming. 

Known for homemade sauces and smoked meats, the igloos are a way to give customers a way to be outside and enjoy their patio during the winter months without the threat of getting cold, general manager Becca Kunz said. 

The heated igloos can get upwards of 75 degrees inside, so there are actually panels to open to let in some of the outside cooler air in case they get too warm. 

Table & Tap’s initial Facebook post announcing the igloos quickly gained lots of attention far and wide — including more than 4,000 shares. Kunz said the phone has being ringing nonstop with people looking to reserve one of the igloos.
Fenton Fire Hall also added igloos to its winter offering’s last year. 

Kunz said she especially has enjoyed seeing the igloos lure in new customers, who can try out their barbeque, see the renovated Capitol Theatre across the street, and other new business additions downtown. 

She called the overwhelming interest in Table & Tap’s igloos an “outstanding sign of how well the city is doing.” Remember though: All this interest also means reservations are required for those who want to try out igloo dining. And, she recommends you act fast. December reservations have been completely booked for several weeks.

Table & Tap accepts reservations for the igloos on a first-come-first-served basis at 4 p.m., 6 p.m., and 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays. Reservations can be made by calling 810-250-3631 or email [email protected].
