Minus 5 Ice Bar
If you’re looking to take a break from the oft-sweltering heat of the Las Vegas Strip then Minus 5 Bar is the perfect spot to cool your jets. A constant 23-degree godsend, Minus 5 Ice Bar allows visitors the unique opportunity to explore intricate handcrafted sculptures and architecture made completely out of ice.

Don’t miss out on this freezing form of fun located inside the Mandalay Bay Resort.
For those seasoned drinkers who enjoy the accompaniment of fine games and childlike wonderment with their beverages, Gold Spike is the perfect place to choose. Specifically themed to get the attention of the young-at-heart, Gold Spike offers a unique atmosphere reminiscent of everyone’s favorite youthful pastime: summer camp. While most summer camps didn’t offer a beverage-package along with swim lessons, Gold Spike welcomes the pairing. In addition to the typical bar games like pool and darts, this establishment offers a wider variety that might surprise you. Board games, bean bag tosses and giant Jenga game pieces make up just a few of the options available to you to enjoy while sipping an ice cold beer. There’s no place like it!
Whether you’re looking to relax on chilly chairs in a 23-degree oasis or lounge in comfy recliners while downing a beer with your buds, there’s no better place to explore the intricacies of local food and libations than Las Vegas. While most things that happen in Vegas must unfortunately stay in Vegas, the locations on this list are a secret worth sharing.
