Minus 5 Ice Bar brings true winter weather to NYC

You may not need a coat outside this December, but you better bundle up for this bar.

Minus 5 Ice Bar, located inside the Hilton Midtown, is chillier inside than the outdoor rink at Rockefeller Center.

Made completely of ice — 100 tons of ice, in fact — and kept at 23 degrees Fahrenheit (negative five Celsius, hence the name), this walk-in freezer helps you get in the winter mood, complete with furry blankets and ice luge shots.

In full midtown style, there are souvenir photos and a gift shop outside the bar. … Tacky staycation, anyone?

Forget your anti-tourist sensibilities and head to midtown for a true winter. And, yes, there’s a $20 cover. It costs money to be cold!
