Vegas-Style Ice Lounge Offers Chilly Shots
Published: October 23, 2013
The rest of the decor is very traditional, maybe skewing on the tawdry side—like the table with a pole for the token drunk girl to dance on—but no one ever claimed Vegas is pure class.
Where Ice Lounge loses some points is in the vibe and clientele. Maybe “rough” wouldn’t be the word, but let’s just say the no fewer than four signs taped to the outside of the bar strictly forbidding sandals, chains on wallets, gang paraphernalia and gang-related facial tattoos were probably needed. Ice Lounge tries to keep it chill (sorry), but on more than one occasion mini scuffles broke out at the bar. This might explain the attitude of some of the bartenders and servers, as they seemed to be a little harsh and “over it” at times, contributing to an icy (ha!) vibe.
Ice Lounge is a cool (sorry, not sorry) idea with decent execution. The bar seems heavily dependent on the day of the week one visits. But patrons might luck out, and if willing to roll the dice, it could be a good place to end the night.
