344--New Zealand: Minus 5, the Coolest Ice-Bar
@ CherieSpotting     Mar 22 2006 - 18:48 PST
cherie writes: If you want a unique experience you have to go to the coolest bar in town--Minus 5. Of course, inside the bar it's minus five degrees, so the bar loans you jackets, mittens, hat and shoes. If the clothes don't keep you warm, the delicious Absolute Vodka cocktails will.

Chill out at Minus 5 while sipping from your ice glass, as you admire the ice art, sitting on the ice furniture while photographing the ice sculptures. But don't come here before you get married...you are liable to get cold feet.
