Drinking and lounging around inside of an ice bar — how cool (pun intended) would that be? Minus 5 at Mandalay Bay was a great experience. What isn’t cool is that they won’t let you take pictures inside.
Here is how it goes down. You pay for a package. You empty our your pockets and put everything inside your locker. You put on your jacket, furr, ear muffs, and gloves, anything to keep you warm, and you are led into the ice lounge. Inside, virtually everything is made out of ice. The bar counter top, seats, and even cups are all made of ice. You actually drink your drink out of an ice sculpted cup. That was a fun experience. You take some pictures from their photographer in front of the ice sculptures, and just have a good time.
Bummer that they don’t allow people to take their own pictures. It would have been nice to share with all of you. Though the room is a little small, it was cool (pun not intended this time). If you are interested in something a little different in Vegas, this is a nice place to start.
