Fodor's Expert Review ICEBAR
Thanks to the miracle of refrigeration, this is Orlando's coolest bar—literally and figuratively. Fifty tons of pure ice are kept at a constant 27°F and have been cut and sculpted by world-class carvers into a cozy (or as cozy as ice can be) sanctuary of tables, sofas, chairs, and a bar. The staff loans you a thermal cape and gloves (upgrade to a faux fur coat for an extra $10), and when you enter the frozen hall your drink is served in a glass made of crystal clear ice. There's no cover charge if you just want to hang out in the nonfrozen Fire Lounge or the outdoor Polar Patio, but you will pay a cover ($15 with upgrade packages available) to spend as much time as you can handle in the subfreezing ICEBAR. There's no beer or wine inside; it's simply too cold.
