LATEST VEGAS MONUMENT TO EXCESS

MINUS 5 BAR

The latest trendy Las Vegas theme bar opens at Mandalay Bay next month. And, you’ve got to hand it to the creators of Minus 5, their concept is truly unique. Everything at Minus 5 (including the bar) is made out of ice. It is being touted as America’s first “ice lounge.”

Critics are deriding the idea as just the latest example of Vegas excess. Environmental groups are decrying the waste of an ice bar in the middle of a desert.

The term “Minus 5″ refers to the bar’s temperature, a constant -5 celsius (or 23 degrees farenheit.) The bar is so cold that patrons are allowed to stay for only half an hour. The bar provides customers parkas, hats and mittens. The price of admission to Minus 5 is $30. That allows you 30 minutes and one drink. Customers can by another two drinks during their stay although the selection is limited. Minus 5 serves only vodka. 

Inside the club, chandeliers and drink glasses are also made out of ice. There are currently five other Minus 5  bars all in Australia and New Zealand. Las Vegas is the first American outlet with franchises expected in Miami and Hawaii.
