Putting on a large fur coat on a sunny 85 degree day may sound to some like a terrible idea, but when you're about to enter Minus 5 Ice Bar... It's a lifesaver. The ice bar is like a blast of extreme air conditioning compared to the balmy temperatures just outside the freezer door.
The interior is chiseled to perfection in true caribbean style, complete with a life-size ice-pirate, ice booths and benches, as well as nautical sculptures complete with seashells. Order bright neon green and blue drinks from ice glasses and let the rim form to your lips.
While this bar is a great option when wanting a change from the local bar scene, it is not one most guests stay in for long as most are typically wearing inadequate footwear... ahh yes, it's true... unfortunately those flip flops from the beach aren't always the best ice bar shoes. But for the record it is an incredible way to cool down on a blistering hot summer day.
