minus 5

The ice bar trend is apparently starting to boom. Minus 5, an ice bar chain that began in New Zealand recently opened in Las Vegas in Mandalay Place on the Las Vegas Strip. Like other ice bars, guests have to put on warm clothes before entering the bar and pay for the experience. A 30-minute visit that includes one drink costs $30 in the bar which is chilled to minus five degrees Celsius (around 23 degrees Fahrenheit). The bar is made of ice, there are giant ice sculptures (including an ice Elvis) and drinks served in glasses of ice. Sounds like this place will be the place to be in summer when Las Vegas temps spike into triple digits.
