Frost Ice Bar Opens at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston

Frost Ice Bar, BostonThere’s a cool new watering hole for revelers in Boston. Opened on August 30 inside Faneuil Hall, Frost Ice Bar is made entirely of ice-- much like the popular Ice Hotels in Sweden and Canada. Cooled to 21 degrees Fahrenheit, the bar serves up cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks inside cups made of ice. Prior to stepping inside, guests are provided capes and gloves to keep warm.

The design is particularly noteworthy, with a beautifully carved ice bar, chandeliers, plus customized ice sculptures from Brookline Ice Company. Local touches abound, celebrating Boston’s historic figures and landmarks.

Open seven days a week from noon to 11:00 p.m. Purchase tickets online or at the outside kiosk; entries are every 15 minutes with 45 minutes allotted for each guest. Eater points out that you can even bring kids during the day (until 5 pm, when the bar becomes 21+). For more information, visit www.frosticebar.com.
