Come relax on freshly carved ice couches while sipping a frosty Cider-Berry Splash. Boston’s very own (and New England’s “only”) indoor Ice Bar is the new craze in town.
So put on your gloves and trendy wool sweaters. It’s time to enjoy the exclusive coolness…getting the party started down at 21°F.
Eskimo has an entire new, stylish meaning when it comes to Frost Ice Bar. Upon your arrival, “insulated” gloves and fur-hooded capes are supplied with each admission. Everything in Frost Ice Bar showcases nature’s divine, crystal element – from “hand carved” furniture to the cocktail glasses and shiny bar itself. The bar’s design truly makes guests feel as though they are in an elite crystal castle in the heart of a winter wonderland.
A stellar show stealer is certainly the grand Chandelier at the bar’s entrance. Designed by the talented Heidi Bayley of the Ice Culture team, her “hanging ice” concept will lock everyone’s eyes on the mesmerizing dangling beads (the entrance piece utilizes approximately 3.3 pound beads!). Or maybe it’s the gorgeous Swan that has caught your attention – glistening in all of its glitz and glamour. The Swan Boat sculpture was entirely carved to perfection within the venue’s grand walls by Brookline Ice & Coal Company’s Eric Fontecchio. Fontecchio finished his masterpiece with a selection of hand tools and absolutely no guide to follow; truly an elite role model and visionary artist at work.
Like the interior design, Frost’s cocktails are strictly luscious and homemade. The venue has assigned quirky names that portray everything about the wonderful city in which it is located – from ‘toasting’ to The Orange Line, a cranberry/lemon/orange juice concoction with Cointreau and Reyka Vodka, to celebrating Boston’s beloved Italian District, The Old North Ender, which is a simply exhilarating treat prepared with lemon sorbet, Reyka Vodka, Westport Rivers Sparkling Wine, and Pallini Limoncello.
The funky and colorful lighting in the Ice Bar is definitely a unique highlight. The venue utilizes “high efficiency LEDs” in all of their vibrant lighting fixtures.
This is certainly an exceptional and grand place to relish with a fun group of friends.
