The Ice Bar at Frost — Photo courtesy of Frost Ice Bar/FacebookFrost Ice Bar is one cool spot for a night on the town in Boston. A first for Boston, Faneuil Hall's Frost Ice Bar is a concept like no other: almost everything is sculpted from ice. Kept at a crisp year-round temperature of 21 degrees Fahrenheit, you'll be just as cool as your surroundings for the duration of your stay. No worries, Frost takes measures to keep you frost-free by providing guests with special capes and gloves upon entry, and ensures you won't turn into one of the ice like the sculptures inside by issuing tickets to guests that are good for a 45-minute stay.
While you're there, order an ice cold glass of your favorite drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), or sample something from their inventive menu that utilizes seasonal changes in influencing their creations, and incorporates the best from local and artisanal purveyors. Then set off to enjoy the scenery because the ice decor is the main attraction.
Marvel at the ice bar, gander at the most unique chandelier you'll find, relax in the lounge and chat with friends when you take a rest on their ice seats, and take in the paintings; you may just forget that it is all made of ice. Frost has truly embraced its location by creating large-scale sculptures that are a mix of famous Boston landmarks like the Zakim Bridge and historical figures like Paul Revere.
For those who can't wait until the sun goes down, Frost opens at 11:00 am and kids over six are welcome until 4:15 pm when Frost chills to children and opens its doors exclusively to the 21+ crowd.
