Glacier Ice Bar And Lounge Returns To Chill Two Hot Locations In New York And Maine

The Sagamore Resort on Lake George and The Samoset in Maine will bring back Winter’s Hottest, Coolest Bar in the Northeast

The Sagamore Resort in Bolton Landing, NY and The Samoset Resort in mid-coast Maine will both welcome back the extremely popular Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge this January. These two outdoor bars are carved from over 18,000 pounds of ice each and both locations are set in spectacular, “winter-wonderland” type settings, overlooking the beautiful water views.

“These two scenic, waterfront locations lend themselves perfectly to the Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge concept,” said Scott Luper, Northeast Regional Director of Food & Beverage for Samoset and Sagamore resorts. “There is no other ice bar in the Northeast that can compete with the amazing views and setting of these two locals. It really is a unique, must-do experience.”

These beautiful ice lounges are created by talented teams of ice sculptors and designers who spend weeks carving and assembling 300-pound blocks of ice using chisels and chainsaws to create bars, seats, tables, ice luges, couches, sculptures and more. Everything in these cold sensory environments, with the exception of the toasty fire lamps and faux fur cushions, is crafted out of ice. Both bars also feature chilly, handcrafted cocktails, live music and special menus of light fare perfect for outdoor, winter dining. Both locations are open to the public and only last a short time so guests are encouraged to get there before it is reduced to only a puddle.

Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge at the Samoset returns on January 15th and remains open on weekends until January 24th.

Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge will return at the Sagamore on January 22nd and remain open on weekends until January 31st.

At both resorts, the Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge is weather permitting.
