The Lodge at Publico will be open Thursdays through Sundays 4pm-close, beginning December 9th through March 31st 2022. A one of a kind winter oasis, the Lodge is outfitted in oversized flannel blankets and pillows, modern, faux moose and deer heads, retro signage and an artificial snow machine to create a true alpine ambiance in the middle of South Boston. No matter how low temps may drop, Publico’s state-of-the-art retractable roof will keep guests warm and toasty alongside the space’s roaring fire pits and heated lounge areas.
Executive Chef, Joel Howard has created a lodge-inspired menu of post slope bites the perfectly pairs with a cocktail menu of hot drinks and seasonal sips, including large format punch bowl style offerings for ski buddies and moose head mugs for individuals. Of course, the classic, apres ski, Shot-Ski will also be back, allowing guests to take up to four house-made shot creations out of a custom ski.
