BUT, what we are going to tell you is to take advantage of all those warm winter layers your wearing and head on over to Concourse Dance Bar in Center City for a totally cool experience. The popular nightclub has transformed into the city’s only ice bar for the winter and it’s totally COVID-friendly!

The new Philly-centric ice bar features 20 Peter Slavin sculptures by award-winning artist Peter Slavin including the Liberty Bell, the LOVE sculpture and a whimsical, butterfly-wing wall that makes for a totally awesome photo-op.

At Concourse’s ice bar and restaurant you’ll also be able to enjoy some Philly-inspired treats and drinks. The set menu, which you must book online ahead of your visit, features a three Philly-favorite treats including mini cheesesteaks, soft pretzels and TastyKakes along with three additional beverages of your choice.

Aside from canned beer and wine, the ice bar’s drink menu also features some pretty original cocktails and concoctions such as the bright “Wildfire” made with Grey Goose Pear, Melon Liquor, Pineapple, Lime Juice, Red Bull and of course a flaming lime boat ($11) and their “Fishtown Punch” served in a fishbowl with Bacardi Black, Christian Bros Brandy, Peach Brandy and lemon. For those who prefer to go alcohol-free the bar also a couple of mocktail options.

As part of their COVID-19 redesign, Concourse has also built an awesome infinity room covered with floor-to-ceiling mirrors, an art room and even a light & sound show! So if you thought all the fun ended at the ice bar, think again, cause you’ll be touring all four rooms during this totally awesome experience.

Of course, Concourse has also implemented a series of health & safety measures to ensure visitor safety which include the obligatory use of masks at all times, keeping the required social distance and regular cleaning and disinfecting of spaces.

Concourse’s ice bar is open only two days a week on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. But the experience does require prior booking, so make sure to reserve your spot online before heading over to Philly’s only ice bar!
