Agents can keep their Las Vegas-bound clients cool in the desert this summer at the new Minus5 Ice Bar, opening this August at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. Minus5 opened America's first ice lounge at Mandalay Bay in September 2008.
The new Minus5 Ice Bar will include all the frozen elements of the original, including a 1,200-square foot ice encased room where everything is made of 100 percent Canadian ice including the bar, tables, benches, walls and even the glasses guests drink from. A variety of ice sculptures and hand-carved pieces will adorn the space and provide the guests who visit each week with a photo backdrop. This will be Minus5's second Las Vegas location, right next to the Monte Carlo Theater.
Created in New Zealand, Minus5 is an ice-themed experience where guests indulge on quality vodka cocktails served in a glass made of pure ice, all within an environment of 23 degrees Fahrenheit). The chilly experience begins with donning Minus5 parkas, gloves and boots and entering a frozen room complete with ice walls, an ice bar, ice seating covered with faux fur pelts, ice tables, and ice sculptures including a seven foot ice "Elvis." The experience is rounded out with a sound and LED light show. Upon exiting, guests can purchase framed color photographs as a permanent memory of their time spent at Minus5 Ice Bar at Monte Carlo.
