If you like the cold, or potentially want to try a new experience, this Ontario bar may be just for you. Think an icebar, -15°C, layers needed, and open all year round. That’s what Icebar is all about at the JW Marriott The Rosseau in Muskoka.
Co-founded by Dan Akroyd, yes THE Dan Akroyd, the Crystal Head Vodka ICEBAR experience welcomes visitors into its cold room, surrounded by ice. According to the JW Marriott, guests who visit will “experience flights of all three Crystal Head Vodka expressions: Original made from Canadian corn, Aurora from English wheat, and Onyx crafted from premium Blue Weber Agave directly sourced from one farm in Mexico.”
