MINUS5 ICE BAR (AMERICA’S FIRST ICE BAR) OPENS AT POINTE ORLANDO
Minus5 Ice Bar unveils its fourth permanent U.S. location in Orlando
“We are so excited to be in Orlando and can’t wait to start meeting the locals, tourists and conventioneers that visit Pointe Orlando each year,” said Minus5 President Noel Bowman. “This is really a beautiful venue and a great space for corporate functions. The quality and ice craftsmanship that has gone into making Minus5 Ice Bar Orlando a frozen work of art is truly phenomenal.”
Minus5 Ice Bars are designed to reflect the personality of the city where they operate. In Vegas, the décor features iconic carvings such as the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, in New York City there is a “Lady Liberty” and Orlando has taken this a step further by including a variety of iconic Florida images including hand-carved palm trees, penguins, space shuttles and a wall that features a variety of frozen sea creatures.
“Minus5 is more than a bar; it’s an attraction that celebrates ice as art and is an entertainment experience that our guests come back for time-and-time again,” added Minus5 Ice Bar Orlando’s General Manager, Chris Eldridge. “For families visiting Orlando this summer, Minus5 is kid friendly and offers a discounted admission for guests between the ages of 7 and 15 daily before 9pm.”
Minus5 Ice Bar has been featured on a variety of national TV programs including TODAY, CNN, Fox & Friends, Travel Channel’s Trip Flip, Extreme Vegas and Vegas’ Top Lounges, E!
