Wow. How much ice is that? About 100,000 pounds’ worth.
So how does this place work? You’ll enter a bar called the Fire Lounge. You’ll see a bartender. That’s Flip. He’ll be serving warm drinks and performing fire shows—flipping bottles and blowing out fire and whatnot.
But what about the ice bar? We were getting to that. You’ll also see a hostess. She’ll be offering up faux-fur coats, hats, moccasins and gloves. You’ll put on those things. Then you’ll head back to what looks like a freezer door. You’ll open it and walk into…
The ice bar? Yes, the ice bar. It’s a bar made of ice. They’ve got vodkas from around the world. An ice sculpture of the Miami Beach sign. An ice hammock. An ice jet ski. Also: crystals. Lots of crystals.
