Portland, Maine, may be a bit chilly this winter, yet when the mercury drops after the first of the year it reminds me of the return of The Ice Bar from Thursday, January 27, 2011, to Saturday, January 29, 2011. Now on to their seventh annual event, the Portland Harbor Hotel is prepared to celebrate against this year.
Enjoy specialty martinis, beers and wines outside in the courtyard at bars sculpted from ice. Watch your drink poured through beautiful ice sculptures as well. If you need to warm up, you can enjoy your drinks inside the hotel while enjoying complimentary hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment. Doors will open each day for The Ice Bar at 5pm to ticket holders and will end each night at 9pm.
The Ice Bar is sponsored this year by Shipyard Brewing Company and Rokk Vodka. As mentioned, there will be food available to guests from The Grill Room, Havana South, and Denny Mike’s ‘Cue Stuff (award-winning barbeque).
You can buy your Portland Ice Bar tickets in advance at Portland Ice Bar Tickets. Again, a reminder that this event has been well-attended in the past, and has previously sold out, so pick up your tickets early.
