This Year’s Theme: Frozen Feats & Circus Treats
JANUARY 19, 20, 26 & 27 // Lake George, NY
The Sagamore Resort’s Glacier Ice Bar
Set on Shelving Rock Terrace, the icy display overlooks Lake George and the 1883 historic resort’s sprawling grounds. In addition to ice luges anchoring each end of the signature ice bar, ice sculptures, and seating draped in faux fur blankets, there’s also a series of heated private igloos for warming up in between time spent at the bar. The handcrafted cocktails run the range from warm, boozy coffee beverages to festive cranberry, vodka, and champagne creations.
*Overnight hotel guests enjoy automatic entry to the ice bar. Open 4-10pm on Fridays and 12-10pm on Saturdays
JANUARY 12, 13, 14, 19 & 20 // Rockport, ME
Samoset Resort’s Glacier Ice Bar
Samoset Resort’s ice bar scene is set seaside, overlooking Penobscot Bay and the property’s 230 acres. Expect a creative menu of both hot and cold hand-crafted cocktails, beer, and even mocktails. And, of course, there’s the signature ice luges, funneling elaborately-crafted shots into special glassware. Warm up with light bites – like chili and New England clam chowder – or gather around one of the fire pits to toast marshmallows.
*Overnight hotel guests enjoy automatic entry to the ice bar.
The Glacier Ice Bars that descend upon The Sagamore Resort and Samoset Resort each January are icy Instagram-worthy extravaganzas that draw tourists and locals alike to sip on the coldest cocktails around in one of the most unique settings. So what does it take to pull such a display off?
