It is expensive, but it's worth it as you are paying for an unique experience (it's what you make of it). The staff were friendly & not trying to upsell packages. You place bags & phones into lockers prior, as there is a photographer who takes the official picture inside at the bar.

Lot of fun in a small place. Friendly staff and good drinks. We had fun and visited other people that were there.

First they wont let you bring any cameras or even your phones in here. In the time when people love to post "selfies" on social media, would you not want them to take pictures and advertise the bar???? The lady with the camera came around after we asked why we couldnt have our phone in here and took some really... More

OMG! So not worth the cost! The faux fur coat upgrades were nasty dirty. It was small and empty. We went in at 10 pm. Music could barely be heard. Does not look like pictures. We went to the one in Monte Carlo NOT Mandalay Bay. They look the same outside. My sugestion would be to charge less to get... More

Went to the minus 5 bar in Monte Carlo and although it did cool me off from the 106 temperature outside it felt like a Summer day in Scotland so much so that my husband and I didnt need the coats provided. This is a nice idea and worth a visit if yoy come from a hot country but if... More

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
