I recently had the opportunity to experience ICEBAR Orlando, one of Central Florida’s newest attractions, for a work-related thing. Never heard of ICEBAR? Well, it’s exactly what you would think it is: a bar made of ice!
Here’s the lowdown on ICEBAR:
- FREE “Chill bar” lounge. This is not part of the “ice” experience, but it’s still a fun environment to hang in. Anyone can go and there’s no need for reservations.
- Experience the chill. $30.00 entry includes one (1) Grey Goose Cocktail, fashionable cape and gloves (seen below), and a 45-minute frozen adventure. This is where the action is! Loads of fun for a group or out-of-town guests, but…yes, $30 is a bit pricy.
Here’s the thing about ICEBAR: it hasn’t fully developed it’s “brand,” or who it’s trying to reach in the Central Florida market. I’m going with the tourist population since the venue is located on International Drive, but buzz on the streets is that the bar is hurting (what isn’t these days?) so I would think they need to start some local marketing campaigns, targeting residents. I mean, before today had you heard about it?
ICEBAR Orlando is currently running a web special for 10% off. There’s no specified expiration date but I wouldn’t expect it to last forever.
Here’s what you can expect in the ICEBAR experience:
Why not check-out the “chill” sometime soon? Great for a group of friends or family visiting from out-of-town. Here’s some important ICEBAR Orlando information:
