I went twice to IceBar in the same day to attend two different law firm receptions and had a great time each time. The Ice bar itself has beautiful changing lights, an ice-sculpted bear, a comfy seating area and generally other props to take pictures with. The drinks were yummy and served in glasses made of ice (so you could eat your glass too!). It does get quite cold in there despite the gloves and jacket they give you so I reckon most people would go in for 15 minutes or so. There is a normal bar right outside the IceBar area as well (so it's not all ice) and you can take a break. Staff was friendly and helpful. Fun place to visit.
We love the Ice Bar! Great DJ, cozy atmosphere, drinks are fantastic and served in ice glasses on the ice side. Coats are provided with entry or you can bring your own. Fur coats are only $10.00 extra for at door cover. They also have cool photo-op areas on the ice side. They will take your picture and you can email to yourself for free.
We have been to the ice bar in Boston so I wanted to visit this one. We had a groupon the cost $46.55 and it was suppose to include 2 drinks and 2 appetizers. However, the kitchen was closed as they were looking for a new chef. They did give us 2 drinks if you want to call them drinks. The ice glass has an ice shot glass in the middle and that is what your drink is maybe a little bit more than a shot glass size. The jackets provided had broken zippers and the velco didn't work. The drink menu was limited. The bartender was nice. Unlike the Ice Bar in Boston this one was very plain inside with no ice pictures on the wall with color etc. The one in Boston has some neat pictures all made of ice and the bartender in Boston explain to use how the color is add. The ice bar in Orlando was not worth the money I spend to go.
Visited the one in London a few times which is small but good fun. The 40 minute time slot in London makes it a bit of an event and a centrepiece to plan your evening around. Booked into the Budapest one in October, so the 'Ice Bar' has become a little theme for us. This one in Orlando was disappointing. It's absolutely tiny. Don't confuse this with the 'minus 5 Ice Bar' in Orlando. I'm certain that's a different establishment, although quite close by (to which I've not been). We went in early as we were with our 14 year old. Kids are permitted between 5pm and 8pm, so it wasn't busy. It probably has a different feel when crowded. You could have a normal coat and gloves for $5 per person or 'upgrade' to a manky old fur coat for $10. This proved a waste of money because there's so little to see the extra insulation isn't required. You can stay in as long as you want which for most people was about 5 minutes! 2 alcoholic and 1 non alcoholic cocktails cost $26 in total. It's quirky if you've never experienced it and the staff are lovely, but unfortunately it's decidedly underwhelming.
