Construction on what is billed as the world’s largest and permanent bar made solely of ice will begin in early November. When completed, ICEBAR at The LINQ Promenade in Las Vegas will be 1,200 sq. ft. and kept at 23-degrees Fahrenheit with a technologically advanced climate-control system that can make continuous adjustments to account for body heat or changes in humidity. Made from nearly 100 tons of ice shipped to Las Vegas from Canada and Minnesota, the project is spearheaded by Noel Bowman of Minus5 Ice Experience.
Once the 650 blocks of ice, which each weigh 250 pounds, arrive in Las Vegas, 12 professional ice carvers will work to construct the ice bar and create sculptures to fill the space, as well as a 10-ft.-by-10-ft. operational bar. Highlights to include: statues of Vegas Golden Knights players wearing jerseys and holding pucks and sticks; as a nod to Caesars Palace’s history, a true-to-life statue of Evel Knievel and a television running a loop of his ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jump over the fountains in 1967; columns, Roman soldiers’ heads and shields; a library and a “working fireplace” with a window showing snow falling “outside”; 12-ft. ice angel wings; and a North Pole scene.
