Ice Bars Return to Lake George Region

There's no cooler lounge scene than an Ice Bar, and the Lake George region happens to be a hot spot.

Crews have spent the past weeks carving thousands of pounds of ice to create bars, stools, games and intricate sculptures.

Each location has a menu of tasty specialty cocktails. You can head inside at any of them to warm up and enjoy a bite to eat.

Most ice bars in our area take place in January, but stay tuned for information about Ice Bars in February as well.
