The Sagamore Resort on Lake George and The Samoset in Maine will bring back Winter’s Hottest, Coolest Bar in the Northeast

Glacier Ice Bar

“These two scenic, waterfront locations lend themselves perfectly to the Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge concept,” said Scott Luper, Northeast Regional Director of Food & Beverage for Samoset and Sagamore resorts.

Due to overwhelming success, The Sagamore Resort in Bolton Landing, NY and The Samoset Resort in mid-coast Maine will bring back the extremely popular Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge in Winter of 2015.    These two outdoor bars are carved from over 36,000 pounds of ice each and both locations are set in spectacular, “winter-wonderland” type settings, overlooking the beautiful water views.

“These two scenic, waterfront locations lend themselves perfectly to the Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge concept,” said Scott Luper, Northeast Regional Director of Food & Beverage for Samoset and Sagamore resorts. “There is no other ice bar in the Northeast that can compete with the amazing views and setting of these two locals. It really is a unique, must-do experience.”

Preparations will begin right after the New Year when two talented teams of ice sculptures and designers will assemble at each resort and will begin preparations for the ice bars which will include carving and assembling 300-pound blocks of ice using chisels and chainsaws to create the bars, seats, tables, ice Luges, couches, sculptures and more. Everything in these cold sensory environments, with the exception of the toasty fire lamps and faux fur cushions, will be crafted out of ice. Both bars will also feature chilly, handcrafted cocktails, live music and special menus of light fare perfect for outdoor, winter dining. Both locations are open to the public and only last a short time so guests are encouraged to get there before it is reduced to only a puddle.

Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge at the Samoset returns on January 16th and remains open on weekends until January 25th.

Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge at the Sagamore Resort returns on January 23rd and remain open on weekends until February 1st.

At both resorts, the Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge is weather permitting.
