A Bushwick bar called Nowadays isn’t shutting down its backyard tables and chairs for the winter. Instead, it’s installing a winter wonderland consisting of a large yurt, an enclosed bar serving hot cocktails and a sauna.

Justin Carter, owner and resident DJ at Nowadays, told Metro New York that “it feels silly to go into hibernation.”  He added that having a backyard sauna has been a personal ambition of his, since he likes to go to Spa Castle in Queens and the Russian and Turkish Baths in the East Village.

The sauna Carter will be using is the HotBox Mobile Sauna, which has traveled to all five boroughs, Metro said. It fits about 10 people at a time and heats up to 180 degrees.
