From Hook Hall:
“Hook Hall, Park View’s massive bar and event space, has been transformed into a Viking Village and reopens this weekend with themed “huts”, rows of firepit and a Viking-inspired menu and cocktails.
The summer’s “cabanas” have turned into cozy spaces with firepits, sectional lounge seating and blankets. Additional huts have been added to Hook Hall’s backyard along with 16 fire pitted seating areas in the center of the yard.
Each themed hut, available with 2.5 hour reservations at $125, includes a welcome bottle of champagne, heaters, special food and drink menus, a table and the option to keep the “doors” (curtains) open or closed. All huts are weather proof, keeping heat in and the thunder of Thor out. Each comes with bottle service and a special prefixed food and beverage pairing menu. The Voyages of the Valkyries menu, to be shared by up to six guests, at $24.99 per person, includes winter hummus to share, a rustic beef stew Beef S’kause and a huge macadamia nut cookie. A drink pairing at $19.99 per person includes a welcome glass of mead; Glühwein, the traditional European mulled wine and a Thor’s Hammered, a specialty mulled hot cider.
Guests in the huts also have the opportunity to enjoy a Viking experience for six people is called the Feast of Valhalla. The $59.99 per person feast comes with a winter salad, a two-pound Bavarian hot pretzel, a shield (or tray) of assorted meats and the massive cookie. The drink pairing, at $29.99 per guest, is mead, Viking beer, dark Scandinavian beer and finished off with Thor’s Hammered hot cider.
Those preferring to be seating in the center yard’s firepit area, with a 2.5 hour $15 reservation, have blanketed benches and a personal firepit
Guests may purchase commemorative traditional Viking drinkware to enjoy a the Viking Village and receive 10% off their drinks served in the vessels.
