minus5° Ice Bar, A Bar Made Entirely of Ice Opens in New York Hilton Midtown Manhattan

Ice Bar

Recently opened at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York City, the minus5° Ice Bar is an entire bar made of Canadian ice. Nearly everything is made of ice, the walls, the seats, the bar, the light fixtures, the drink glasses, and the temperature inside the bar is kept at 23 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 5 degrees Celsius). Verena Dobnik of NBC 4 New York recently visited the bar and reports that “any heat-emitting devices that could melt the Arctic freeze — like cellphones — must be deposited in temperature-proof lockers at the door.”
