I have never seen anything like that! In the photograph, it looks like a small-scale model.

Thanks Pagan, its actually a life sized bar with a giant video screen behind it.

Crash said...

Wow is that ever cool. I too have never seen anything like that, is that indoors?

Hilda said...

Wow. Is that carved out of ice?

That is awesome, with Annie Lennox in the background. This shot should be hung on the wall in that bar.

This is a great Photo of the Bar. I would like to tell your readers about this bar and Ice Carving in Saskatchewan.

This bar was designed by the bar owner and donates money raised from drink sails at the bar to a local charity.

The builder/designer of this Full Size Ice Bar is Peter Fogarty of Fire and Ice Creations from Saskatoon. http://www.fireandicecreations.ca/

Fire and Ice Creations will make anything anyone would like out of ice from shooter glasses to a multi block carvings like the bar.

Take a look a the website.
Thanks.

Wow so cool, literally

Carolyn Ford said...

Oh! That's beautiful! Ice sculptures are so amazing. Our Mammoth Mountain Ski area (California) does this during the winter, too. They are such fun to admire.

That is so cool!

Cool! Nice shots!

Mona Sweden said...

Wow! Very cool! In the north of Sweden we have an ice hotel in a village called Jukkasjärvi. I've never been there, but I know they have an ice bar as well. But I doubt our ice bar is as cool as yours.

JQ said...

You could set your beer on the bar and it wouldn't get warm, perfect. Awesome shots.

Anonymous said...
