Let's say it's the first day of spring. At last. Fifty shades of grey slush are being washed away from New York stoops and sidewalks. Balmy days are here again. Well, if you can't bear to see a yellow daffodil popping up in that crack in the sidewalk, have I got a treat for you.
Opening this Spring, and be the first kid on the block to know it, is the Minus5deg Ice Bar. Winter one more day. Yay! Just so you can plan ahead, it's going to be at the New York Hilton. Can Paris be far behind?
Already in New Zealand, Monte Carlo, Las Vegas, now you can look forward to freezing your ass off in New York for an extended winter. All-ice bar, chairs, tables, glasses made of ice. All the ice to clink in your drink is Canadian. Glasses frozen in New Zealand. What, even our ice has to be outsourced?
Ice sculptures inspired by ice.
No food, (not even a frozen TV dinner), just drinks. $17. for a drink. The specialty of the house, vodka, at the top of the list if you have fond memories of Siberia. And to ward off frost bite, you will be given a parka, with faux fur. And boots. And a hat. Upon entering. Check your stilettos at the door.
Can't wait to see the ladies room. Penguins in attendance?
Hi, do you come here often?
