The Bar's Open, Come On In!


The Chambers Ice Bar is now open

It is the first outdoor ice bar in the United States and what better place to have one than the frozen hell hole we call Minneapolis.


The Ice bar will remain open till we get our first thaw which may not be until May!

Doors wide open and a starless sky above, the Chambers Hotel Ice Bar grand opening was a crowded soiree of black pea coats and rosy cheeks. Heaters were scattered about the front half of the patio, sandwiched between the two bars, DJ and private lounge tents, causing the bulk of the crowd to rub elbows and backsides with other heavily clothed strangers. A large fire pit of rocks and flames offered not only heat but a nice glow on the little bit of skin left exposed.

Cheers and Happy Chilly Friday!

Yeah, but do they serve drinks in glasses made out of ice? I saw a place in Norway or Finland that did that. And I wanna stay in an ice hotel one of these years. I know...weird.

I'm in the middle of Iowa today/tonight. I was in line at the gas station today and some guy said "My God, it's colder here than Minnesota"

It is very cold, but there is nary an ice bar in existence here.

You can buy a game called "Cornhole" at convenience stores here. It's true.

I may have to check it out! I think the Chambers Ice Bar might be the answer to staying warm here in Minneapolis, better known as the frozen hell hole.
Have a good week! I think we are in for a really cold one.
