What You Need To Know

Ready to cool down in a truly unique way? Step into minus5 at Mandalay Bay for an unforgettable icy escapade!

If entering a winter wonderland crafted from a whopping 100 tons of meticulously carved ice sounds like your idea of fun, ICEBAR is the activity for you. But what can you truly expect from this frosty adventure?

Well for starters, you’ll be immersed in a sub-zero environment where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is made of ice. From your drinking glasses to the walls, seats, and even sculptures, it’s a total frosty paradise. Imagine sipping your favorite beverage, and instead of warming up, it gets colder with each sip – that’s the fun of ICEBAR!

As the name suggests, ICEBAR is kept at a pretty chilly temperature, but don’t worry – when you visit, they’ll deck you out in a parka and gloves. With some packages, you can even upgrade to a super stylish faux fur coat. These outfits not only will keep you warm, but they make for some pretty fun photo ops.

ICEBAR offers an experience like no other, but here’s what you need to know:

  • Layer Up: Even in the Vegas heat, it’s chilly inside. They provide a warm parka, but it’s wise to wear closed-toe shoes and maybe some long pants.
  • Drink Smart: Since everything is made of ice, your drinks won’t last forever. Sip at a reasonable pace to fully enjoy the frosty ambiance without turning into an ice cube yourself.
  • Capture the Moment: The ice sculptures and unique setting are prime for Instagram-worthy shots. Don’t forget your camera or phone, and get ready to make your friends jealous.
  • Timing is Everything: It’s a cool experience (pun intended), but it’s also popular. Aim to arrive early to avoid longer waits, especially on weekends.
  • Bring the Whole Group: ICEBAR is great for groups. Gather your friends, and you’ll have a blast toasting in a frozen paradise together.
  • They have other locations too! You can find minus5 ice bars at The LINQ, The Venetian, and Mandalay Bay.

Now that you know what awaits you at ICEBAR, go ahead and dive into this frosty world. It’s not every day you get to sip a cold one in the midst of a Vegas winter, right? Enjoy your chill time!

  • No reservation required, tickets can be purchased online.
