fantastic music.... but needs more hot guys! – I went to the ice bar last night (my first bar in NYC ever) with 2 of my girls and we had a good time despite the lack of good looking men! The music was fantastic a great combo of lots of hip hop, old school and new. there was also some pop I remember hearing a eurythmics song which i loved. good drinks I had a couple cosmos even though they were $12 a drink. then i decided to get a beer b/c it was a little less $$$ at 7 bucks. It was pretty busy by 12:30 and me n my girls took to the dance floor most of the time. seemed like a little older crowd like late 20's early 30's. My biggest concern was that there was a limited amount of cute boys :( but thats a 21 year old point of view. the bartenders were really nice and attentive. all in all I had a good time. i'd go again.
Great LES Lounge - Not pretentious – We were bar-hopping for my sister's 21st bday and ended up here to meet some friends. It was AWESOME from the door. The bouncer saw my sister's id & that it was her bday and he told her "to get right to the bar & get [her] drink on the house!" The staff was friendly & outgoing, the space had a really nice vibe. It wasn't overcrowded and was a mixed group of young people (20s and early 30s). Good drinks, great music, great design. Highly recommended!!
Excellent!!! – I went here for the past two weeks in a row. I absolutely love this place. The music is great, the staff, and door guys are so nice. I don't know what the other girl is talking about in her review below. She must be out of her mind, first of all honey you are in New York, and if you want to go out almost anywhere in NYC on a weekend you should prepare to spend $$$$$, and if you aren't happy why the hell did you stick around for 2 hours then??? Unbelievable some people just don't know how to appreciate things. Regardless ICE is absolutely fantastic, bottle service is superb they really do have five star service when it comes to bottle/table service. The music is fun, and everyone is dancing. The crowd is A+ list. Gorgeous looking guys, and beautiful girls. Leo the manger is very nice, his staff has a very high level of professionalism, and is on point, which I think is very important in NY. ICE keep up with the amazing job. I love you guys.
Not a good time – Im surprised by all these reviewsd- I came here with a few friends and did not have fun at all. The crowd was strange... not b&ts but they did not look like locals. I dunno where they were from. The music was good one song, then the next was bad... Drinks were expensive- normal for anywhere else in the city- but since nothing else was good here I thought maybe they'd compensate with low prices. All in all I wasted 2 hrs here and when it didnt get any better we left and went elsewhere.
The BF Experience B Day Bash!!!!!!! – I celebrated my 28th birthday at Ice Lounge on Saturday January 12th and I must admit it was probably one of my best birthday parties. The reason was not just my guest list of over 100 people. Nor was it just the bottle service specials I received for the night. But it was all sparked by the professionalism of Leo, the manager and his entire staff from the doorman to the dude bringing more glasses and limes to my table LOL!!!! I was looking at 2 other spots besides Ice, but once I spoke with Leo my decision was made. And not to mention Leo was able to move a party from earlier that day (with a very large bank I will not mention) so me and my guest could begin my celebration earlier that night. Myself as well as all of my guest had a great time and I felt like I was able to party and dance and drink with all my guest because there was enough room to not feel crowded without that feeing of a NYC club. In all Ice provided great service, a cool mixed crowd, and the drinks were on point. Ohhhhh and how could I forget the DJ whom played a good mix of today?s hip-hop and R&B......well......I would have liked to hear some old school just some late 90's Biggie, Jay-Z, Mase, Wu Tang, you know I love Hip-Hop, but other then that it was all good. If you?re having a party or just looking for a good night out with a few friends BF would recommend Ice Lounge.
Amazing Birthday! – Had my 25th birthday there last night, and could not have asked for a better night!!! Leo and the rest of the staff were more than accomodating, there was plenty of room to dance, and the DJ played pretty much whatever we asked him to! There isn't one thing I would change about last night, it was the perfect spot!! Been to a number of birthday parties in the area and definitely think Ice Bar is the best place, highly reccomended for birthdays or just a night out!
anytime – It was a good time for me and my friends.... Great social atmosphere with a good neighborhood feel...
A party to remember!!! – Last weekend I threw my 24th birthday party here and my god - not one complaint from any of the 20 guests! Every single person left saying they had the best time and I threw an awesome party. I loved it, danced all night, Leo (the manager) was more than accommodating for me and my guests. He kept great communication for planning everything. Our party totally owned the dance floor too, we were all dancing for approx. 80% of the 5hrs that we were there. ICE closed at 4am and we were dancing, having the time of our life until the lights went on! I highly recommend this place for any party, it's not crowded and the bar staff was incredibly quick and really nice.
Mind you, I checked out 5 lounges prior to booking my party and my only requirements were: good music, cool atmosphere, and dancing! I didn't realize this was so much to ask but ICE was perfect! The music was awesome (this is why we danced all night). Even the 1 person who didn't dance in my party had a great time so it's a good time to be had by anyone!
Beautiful Girls!!!! – Went here last Saturday at 1am the place was off the hook. The girls were very hot!!! The music was great a good mix of of house music. Meet 3 German girls, the crowd was very nice. Alot of beautiful people mostly european crow. The staff was friendly, the drinks were great. I definatley will be back again very soon.
EMPTY ON A SATURDAY NIGHT – I showed up with my friends so excited to see what all the fuss was about. I'm not lying when I say we were THE ONLY 5 PEOPLE IN THIS BAR! It was Saturday night around 11pm-midnight. In any event, the bar staff was extremely nice and the DJ let us spin and dance around to whatever we wanted. We got free drinks and great service...because everybody working there was so bored. If this was busy, it would be great...otherwise, skip it.
