32 Foot Chicago Skyline Ice Bar

This is Johnson Studios Ice Sculptures most ambitious project so far this year! This 32′ ice bar was commissioned by a private event planner for a national corporation’s annual gathering at Chicago’s Navy Pier.

The planning took over a month & almost a full week of ice carving.

About Ice Bars – An ice bar, sometimes associated with an ice hotel is a drinking establishment primarily made of ice. The bars usually contain ice sculptures and other formations and are kept at low temperatures (generally about -5 °C) to hinder melting. The walls and seating are also usually made of ice. Mostly a novelty, the ice bar is often considered a tourist destination. Visitors enter for timed stays and even staff work on time-limited shifts. The most popular drinks served at ice bars are ice-cold vodka shots, or cocktails mixing vodka with a berry puree.

Ice Bars Become Cool Way to Enjoy Winter

There’s no question that part of the ice-bar phenomenon is owed to the idea that people are looking for things to do at this time of the year. The days are beginning to get a little longer and the light a little brighter, and people seem ready to shake off the winter blues and begin the de-hibernation process.Chicago Skyline Ice Bar
