A new Las Vegas venue is now accepting bookings for private events: Icebar at the Linq Promenade, created by Noel Bowman of Minus5 Ice Experience. Opening this November, the new space is next to the new Caesars Forum conference center, which will open in 2020.
Icebar hosts a total of 500 guestts: 150 in the frozen bar, 150 in the warm space and 200 on the open-air patio. Customized ice sculptures can be produced for any occasion, and branded products can even be showcased while being deep-frozen in crystal-clear blocks of ice. In addition, Icebar offers other branding opportunities, including the opportunity to project imagery onto a 12-foot-wide LED screen facing The LINQ Promenade, which is traversed by 40,000 visitors a day. Inside, the venue has six 55-inch LED monitors and three projector walls.
Everything inside the frozen space in Icebar is constructed with ice: the walls, the seats and even the glasses in which the venue’s drinks are served. The space will have cool, blue and green décor elements and signage on the exterior, as well as a 1,000-square-foot covered patio facing the Promenade’s fountain and a “warm space” devoted to a warm bar and lobby at the front entrance. The ice attraction encompasses 1,200 square feet and more than 100 tons of hand-carved ice. The space is maintained at 32 degrees Fahrenheit by a sophisticated, state-of-the-art refrigeration system.
Visitors to Icebar don parkas or faux fur coats, and those 21 or older can select from a signature menu of chilled cocktails, such as The Ice Man, Frozen Mojito and Frosé, all served in glasses made entirely of ice. The attraction is also family friendly, offering icy mocktails with clever names such as Jack Frost and Yeti.
Group bookings are also available at two Minus5 Ice Experiences locations on the Strip. The Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino location can accommodate groups of up to 500 guests and The Venetian Resort Las Vegas can accommodate groups up to 200. Similar to Icebar, both Minus5 locations have a warm space and a complete ice room with unique ice carvings, specialty cocktails, parkas or faux fur coats.
