Head to the Polar Lounge on Harriet’s Rooftop at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge for what may be the coolest bar experience currently in NYC!
Some of you may remember the Minus5 bar that used to be in the New York Hilton Midtown, but sadly the spot has been closed for a few years. Since then NYC has been missing its very own ice bar that has become a popular attraction in cities such as Vegas & beyond. But not any more!
New Yorkers can adventure back into an arctic oasis at the Polar Lounge that first opened Friday, January 21st. The pop-up bar will only be in town through the end of February so you better make a reservation before your opportunity melts away!
The “glacial landscape” overlooking the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn Bridge is designed by Okamoto Studio and features custom seating and tables carved entirely from ice! Beyond ice seating and tables, try their Arctic Cosmopolitan, Snow Leopard Margarita, or Cucumber Cooler all served in crystal clear ice glasses.
Sounds a bit chilly don’t you think? Well fear not because Polar Lounge has teamed up with luxury outerwear brand, Moose Knuckles to provide cozy parkas that will keep guests warm throughout their entire visit. *However, we do recommend you bring your own pair of gloves.
Visitors can choose general admission or VIP Table entry. For $25, general admission will give you access to the standing area and a complimentary cocktail. For those choosing the VIP Table ($50/person & $200 minimum/table), entry includes table service backdropped by the glittering skyline, among a complimentary cocktail and caviar amuse-bouche per person. A portion of the sales will go towards the Oceanic Global’s educational programs and industry solutions.
Make your reservation here.
