Experience Winter at the Wharf in Cozy Comfort 

MANITOWOC, WI – November 8, 2021 – When the Wharf Manitowoc first opened, it redefined the outdoor riverside experience with drinks and live entertainment adjacent to the beautiful Manitowoc River. With its permanent remodel that opened in May of 2021, it expanded the experience to all-weather including food-service. The Wharf is again expanding riverside opportunities in Manitowoc thanks to its investment in heated globes to provide a special Winter at the Wharf experience presented by Nicolet National Bank. 

Recognizing that in Northeast Wisconsin, we love being outside doing whatever we can for as long as we can, The Wharf will feature five heated, weather resistant geodesic domes, aka igloos, this winter to extend the outdoor season. Each cozy geometric bubble is constructed with clear walls so guests can soak up the riverside views while enjoying the toasty warmth of the relaxed ambiance. A special winter drink menu, including warm drink options, will be offered in the globes. “Shareable” food packages will also be offered while enjoying the dome experience. 

“Our riverside location allows us to engage the outdoors in a unique way that will now be extended through the winter with the spectacular experience and atmosphere of the globes,” remarked Brennan Seehafer, owner of the Wharf. “This aesthetic approach provides the potential for some magical nights. It will be really special to experience a snowfall from within a globe or simply marvel at the starry sky.” 

The globes will be available via reservation and provide opportunities for holiday engagements, family gatherings, date nights and more. Each rental is 90-minutes long and accommodates up to eight people at one time. The Wharf will begin accepting online reservations for The Globes on November 10th at 9AM with availability beginning December 3rd. For more information, visit

“Throughout the season, The Wharf will be decked out, both inside and outside, in its holiday finest to get you in the holiday spirit,” commented Seehafer. “I invite you to come down and experience our first Winter at the Wharf presented by Nicolet National Bank.” 

The Wharf is a waterfront bar, grill and live music venue on the river in downtown Manitowoc. Featuring a 4000 square- foot open air patio with a state-of-the-art retractable roof system, The Wharf is open year-round and features free concerts and ticketed events.
