Drink A Martini In The Sole Ice Bar In Alaska At The Aurora Ice Museum
If you’re craving something out of the ordinary for a fun new adventure, the Ice Bar at the Aurora Ice Museum in Fairbanks, Alaska will give you something interesting to experience! You can enjoy a chilled Appletini at a bar made of ice, and enjoy this one of a kind adventure.
The Aurora Ice Museum is located on Chena Hot Springs Resort, which is about an hour drive outside of Fairbanks, Alaska.
Chena Hot Springs Resort has actually been around for 115 years, and they encourage you to come and relax in their beautiful hot springs. In January of 2005, their ice museum was completed and became open to the public.
This museum is actually the world's largest year-round ice environment.
They used over 1,000 tons of ice and snow to build all the magnificent ice sculptures and designs you will admire once you enter. And all of this ice and snow was harvested right on the property, and brought into the museum!
The Aurora Ice Bar is completely carved out of ice, with cool neon lighting shining through.
There are plenty of ice stools for you to rest on, and when you start the tour you will be given a large parka to use to ward off the cold. The interior stays at a steady 25 degrees all year long.
This is a unique opportunity to drink a fabulous Appletini out of a thick, hand carved martini glass made out of ice.
They will actually carve the glass right in front of you. You will love drinking out of this exclusive ice glass, and they don't even have to shake the cocktail, as the container chills it for you.
The only cocktail they offer is an Appletini.
The Appletini is $15.00, and must be purchased ahead of time at the ticket office when you purchase your ice museum tour tickets. A legal ID must be shown, and you have to be at least 21 years of age to enjoy one of these beauties!
Tickets to get into the Aurora Ice Museum are $15.00 for ages 12 and older, and $10.00 for youth between the ages of 6 and 10.
Kids below the age of 5 years of age have free admission, as long as they go in with a paying adult. Make sure you purchase your ticket ahead of time, at least 15 minutes before the tour starts!
This stunning ice museum is open every single day of the year, without exceptions.
Sign up for any of their daily tours, at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. This is a fun adventure that you don't want to miss!
