Still desperately looking for a way to cool down this summer?

To escape out of the heat wave is closer than you think! Welcome to The Chill Ice House. Entrepreneur Gresham Bayley made it possible that Toronto has its first ice bar and lounge in the former Drake General Store space at 82 Bathurst Street (between King and Wellington). Bayley already set up ice lounges around the world with Iceculture Inc., a family owned business. The new venue has around 1,300 square feet, which means it is the largest year-round ice lounge in the world.

The complete interior and its features are made out of ice: chairs, tables, glasses, and the bar.  At -5 degrees you can either enjoy a hot scotch whiskey apple cider or a cold cocktail. The whole concept is well thought through. To clean the ice glasses and plates they use liquid nitrogen and that might be a disadvantage for companies selling dishwashers. In case the drink in your glass is warmer than you, just go to their warm up cabin.



To make sure you can stand the cold, you will need to wear a warm parka or jacket. If you would like to grant your winter coat a use month before winter approaches, you are welcome to bring it. Otherwise, the Chill Ice House offers parkas to all visitors.

The lounge opened on July 17th. However,  the official opening party was July 24th  and it featured an ice DJ booth as well as live ice sculpting.
