Drinkhouse Fire and Ice Bar
Usually when you walk into an upscale lounge, they offer to take your coat. At Drinkhouse Fire and Ice Bar, they give you one. That's because this avant garde space—lined with bricks of ice—is kept at a cool 23 degrees Fahrenheit, making the loaner faux furs essential. And the coats are just, well, the tip of the iceberg at Drinkhouse. Read on to learn more about the other distinctive elements found in this cool spot.
The ice: Internationally competitive ice sculptor Joe Rimer designed and built the space from 100,000 pounds of pristine ice. In addition to intricately carved sculptures, there are also blocks embedded with real crystals. There's even an ice throne you can sit on for a photo op or to learn how to empathize with penguins.
The drinks: All that ice obviously helps keep cocktails cold. Bottles are lined upon ice shelves, ice cubes are cut into novelty shapes, and some libations are even served in glasses made of—you guessed it—ice. The creative craft cocktails include the Samadhi Night Spa with Hendrick's, St. Germain, and cucumber, as well as the Cannabis Cooler with hemp-flavored vodka.
The fire: A safe distance from the Ice Bar is the Fire Lounge, a sultry space dressed in smoldering hues and brass accents. Revelers can warm up there after their ice time by sipping some smoky mezcal or working up a sweat alongside popular EDM dancer Lady Casa.
