I don't get the attraction.

great. arctic ice is diminishing every year, contributing to global warming in a vicious cycle, and these asshats are carving frikkin bars out of it to suck extraordinary sums of money from inconsiderate yuppie bastards who think it's 'cool' to pay too much money for a shiatty drink while killing the planet and blaming bush for letting the hippies challenge intelligent design

did i forget anyone?

/oh yeah... clinton got a bj, and the biatch either didn't swallow or puked

Wasn't the last Bond movie about this?
 
2005-09-30 10:59:56 PM
what happens if you spill anything on the bar? Nasty.
 
2005-09-30 11:02:15 PM
I can't see it lasting more than a year. Once the allure of the gimmick diminishes people won't return constantly.

Coming from Canoe.ca, I expected the story to be about London, Ontario. But I guess they wouldn't have noticed up there in the Great White.

Martini and Rossi on ice....That's nice!

Maybe these guys will be given the contract to build the President of Turkmenistan's ice palace in the middle of the desert

ice bars and hotels - old and busted
fire bars and hotels - the new hotness (literally)

Ice Bar, HA HA! With a 45 minute time limit to the patrons. They don't want you getting sick in the -5 temp. In Quebec City (in the Netherlands, and Japan) they build an Ice Hotel (thats kept at -5) that you can spend the night in.

Barstool made of ice helps the middle age hornyball syndrome.

Easiest bar to break the ice with a woman ...

You young whippersnappers would find this more ironic if you had, like me, been in London in 1972, when if you went into a bar/pub and asked for ice in your drink, you'd have gotten nothing but blank stares.

Always the ladies fault is it? How can you be so sure the prez wasnt just a lil excited and finished up early and with bad aim?

As a republican I demand an investigation, we get Clinton and about 15 prostitutes and 5 scientists, we have all 20 give him a bj and graph the results.

/Clinton did not suggest this to me
//Bill is however willing to help defray the costs of such a study with an out of purse contribution
///because Hil aint been putting out since. well ummm.. Anywho she doesnt keep a sharp eye on her purse.

I thought that was still the case whether you're in a bar or a restaurant

I find the ad for The Amazing Race a little ironic. It was either last season or the season before the contestants had a challenge in one of these Absolut ice bars, I believe in Sweden.

farbekrieg: Not going to blame bush for this?

nah... i figured i'd let it slide, since the story is in london. but now that you bring it up, if saddam didn't have all of those wmd's, osama would have used our own weapons against us elsewhere, possibly even mass transit systems in undisclosed locations because bush considers himself too good to use public transportation

You might want to RTFA. This is river ice and is replenished on a regular basis.

Don't let pesky things like facts get in the way of your rants, though. Heaven forbid.

"For a cover charge of $25 Cdn, patrons are given a thermal cape, thick gloves and a glass made out of ice"
Wouldn't you lip stick to the glass? Sexy....

wow. ok. i thought the sarcasm in that post of mine was pretty damn evident. farbekrieg seems to have picked up on it just fine

don't let little facts like 'this is fark', and 'expect trolling here' to get in the way of your self-righteousness

Not even enough time on the ticket for a good-ole power hour.

how do you pick up women there?

I bet they'd be kinda... frigid.

I've been to the one in Stockholm.


They're right. Negative five degrees C IS the best tempurature for enjoying vodka :)

They used to send crystal clear Alaska Glacier ice to Japan and sell it for $10 a bag.
 
2005-10-01 01:50:26 AM
Nothing new, there are already a few Ice Hotels out as well.

big deal, this kinda stuff has been done before.. went to the freezer bar at balalaika in hong kong last summer. although nothing is made of ice, you get fur coats, russian hats etc. It's true, vodka tastes way better when it's cold.

So, if a patron gets drunk and pukes on the bar, how exactly do they clean that up?

Have to drink a lot in 45 minutes

easy, a mini Zamboni, kinda like a roomba vaccum cleaner but on ice.

Seriously for any organic spill on the bar no biggie, wipe up any excess, attack the spot with one of those ice scrapers like you use on your windshield, sweep off the contaminated ice scrapings and pour a cup of water over the area, instant refinishing job.
