Minus 5º Ice Bar
POINTS OF INTEREST
Minus 5º Ice BarEverything about the Minus 5º Experience Ice Bar is, well, cool in more ways than one. You don gloves and a white or black faux fur coat, then step into a futuristic space completely fashioned from ice: the intricately carved walls, the bar, the tables, the banquettes (draped in fur throws), even the shot and highball glasses. An LED light show plays off the ice sculptures, from pirates to palm trees, which the talented artists change every 8 to 10 weeks. The very chill bartenders serve you a shot, then you choose from one of eight cocktails (with names like Chilly Willy, natch), both included in the entry fee. For a nice contrast, warm up in the adjacent Smuggler's Bar (same building and ownership) serving 100 different rums, and decked with Union Jacks, glass buoys, rigging, fish nets, and old apothecary cabinets.
