BOSTON - The drinks are always cold at Boston's first ice bar.
The Frost Ice Bar, constructed and furnished entirely with blocks of ice kept at a chilly 21 degrees, opened recently near Faneuil Hall.
It is New England's first permanent, year-round, indoor ice bar.
Visitors put on insulated capes and gloves to keep warm while they enjoy alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages in the unique interior. The elaborately carved bar, chandelier, sculptures, seating and even paintings are all made of ice. Even the drinks are served in ice glasses.
The bar also features sculptures of Boston landmarks and historical figures, such as the swan boats and Paul Revere.
Don't worry about frostbite. Visitors are limited to 45 minutes per visit.
