Milwaukee, WI – Nov. 8, 2018 – Lowlands Group announced today the late November launch of an all-new experience on the rooftop of Café Benelux, the Lux Domes. There will be six private, heated domes installed on the rooftop at Café Benelux, each seating up to eight guests at a time. Guests will be able to book a dome for up to eight people for an hour and a half time slot on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings online at luxdomes.com, beginning later in November. Each reservation includes a complimentary drink package as well as special keepsake mugs for guests, with the ability to add a variety of additional festive food and beverage packages to help celebrate the season.

We wanted to create a way for Milwaukeeans to enjoy the city during our cold and dark winter evenings that was an experience unlike any other in the city,” said Dan Herwig, director of brand and marketing for Lowlands Group. “We’ve seen similar rooftop experiences in London and Boston add life to those cities in their harsh winters, so we figured Milwaukee would be a great fit for something similar.”

Food and beverage packages will be available as add-ons to the Lux Dome reservation and will be served Stammtisch-style—commonly found at traditional German Christkindl Markets—where food and beverages are ordered ahead of time and dropped off at the start of the reservation, with guests then left to enjoy the space and their company.

Food and beverage package details, FAQs, and an email sign-up to be notified when reservations open for the season can be found at luxdomes.com.
