Just happened by and had seen one when in NY but was freezing temps there so skipped it then. Had seen things like it on the Travel Channel and wanted to try it out. Could have settled for the parka experience but we thought the fur coat would make a better picture....all about choices. I think we chose correct. Loved... More

We didn't know this was in Vegas, but saw it by chance while exploring hotels. Paid maybe too much just to go in an icy bar for high priced drinks, but it's Vegas! We've never done this particular thing before, so to us, we think it's a "must do". My husband and I get lots of comments when he wears... More

A bit overpriced, but it is Vegas, and most things seem to be overpriced. It was amusing to sit in an ice cave inside a Vegas hotel, sipping a drink from an ice glass, shivering my butt off. You are given a parka, boots, and gloves to wear, and for even more money you can upgrade to a fur coat.... More

Had two free tickets to get into the Minus 5 Ice Bar at the Monte Carlo. got the tix off MyVegas points through FB. Had to pay $18US for 2 drinks. Place is small. Drinks way too expensive and even though they come in a glass made of ice, the drink was actually worth about $4. Guess we paid for... More

This is a fun bar to go to in the Monte Carlo Hotel. Upon entrance you will be given boots (don't decline them because you will want them), gloves, and a coat. The entire bar is made of ice, the bar, the glasses to hold your drinks, the tables, benches, and art. You will be charged an entrance fee, and... More

After paying nearly $450 for six of us to get in the disappointment was huge. During the sales pitch the staff were very friendly but this soon changed once through the door. One feeble drink was served to each of us in a small tumbler made from ice. You are not allowed to take any photos as the operators want... More

It's a lot of fun, and a different way to experience a drink on the strip. My wife and I are from Michigan, and it felt good to cool off for a while. To be honest, we took a certain amount of pride in watching the others freeze, while we sat comfortably enjoying our drink. Some people complain about the... More

Total rip off, after paying $57 to get in, only to find if you wanted a fur coat, it was another $30, once inside the drink included was a mere mouthful , the staff are very nice until your inside, then just rude, it's very small, and nothing inside to make you want to stay, it's not even that cold,...

The experience was way overpriced! They take great photos inside. However the demeanor of the hostess changed quickly when we didn't purchase the entire photo package they suggested. The drinks are outrageously overpriced and not all that great. Save your money!

It was really good to be able to get some where nice and cold for a drink. Cocktails were over priced but the designs in the ice and the experience of having a drink in a glass made out of ice was awesome. We had a great time.
