Minus5 Ice Bar, the company that launched America’s first ice bar, is gearing up for the new year with a complete makeover of its flagship location inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place. Slated to be unveiled early 2016, Las Vegas’ original ice bar will offer guests a newly renovated venue with 100% new material and a frosty, winter wonderland that is double its original size.

The revamped location will feature more than 120 tons of fresh 100% pure Canadian ice and a 1,300 square-foot ice bar, making this location the largest permanent ice bar in the world.

Their museum-quality carvings will amaze visitors with an eclectic mix of replica-inspired sculptures such as the Las Vegas Skyline, the Iron Throne from HBO’s Game of Thrones, and much more.

“Locals and tourists alike have been huge supporters of Minus5 since we first opened our doors seven years ago and we cannot wait to showcase our brand-new space, filled with truly spectacular sculptures,” said Noel Bowman, president of Minus5 Management. “We’ve almost doubled the size of our space due to its popularity and high demand for private events.”

The warm space adjacent to Minus5 Ice Bar, known as the Ice Lounge, will also offer a new look and experience in a larger space. The newly expanded 3,000 square-foot lounge will feature seating for up to 500 guests on a flow, including a 20-seat bar and two private rooms that can accommodate up to 80 guests each, making it a great destination for private events.

“Minus5 is a totally unique location for those looking for a memorable Vegas experience with a small or large group of friends, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and corporate outings,” Bowman continued. “It truly is the coolest experience in Las Vegas.”

About Rí Rá Las Vegas

Crafted in the warm pub style of 19th century Ireland, Rí Rá Las Vegas is located inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place.  The authentic Irish pub features a multitude of artifacts that were carefully restored in Wicklow, Ireland and shipped to their new home in Las Vegas.  Rí Rá Las Vegas contains an authentic Victorian Shop bar that began its life in Ireland in the 1880s, a whiskey bar adorned with an original glazed jewelry cabinet from 1900, an oak floor from a whiskey distillery and an 8-foot-tall, 500-pound carved plaster statue of St. Patrick dating back to 1850.  The pub hosts live entertainment seven nights a week in a music room constructed with artifacts dating back to 1890 from the Olympia Theater in Dublin, Ireland. Born and raised in Dublin, Rí Rá Las Vegas owners David Kelly and Ciaran Sheehan have been close friends since they were 14-years-old. Kelly and Sheehan later partnered with Jay Luther, whom Kelly met while working for Guinness. Rí Rá Las Vegas is one of nine pubs the trio has opened in the U.S.
