Did You Know There’s An Ice Bar Coming to Downtown Grand Rapids?
How am I just hearing about this?
Apparently, Grand Rapids Downtown Market has been holding this awesome Ice Bar Event since at least 2015!
Ice Bar Returns to Grand Rapids Downtown Market
What goes down at the event? Well, just like it sounds - there'll be an ice bar!
Twelve feet of ice are carved into an outdoor bar serving craft beers, cocktails, and more.
Plus, in years past, there's been fungames like giant Jenga, beer pong, table hockey, corn hole, and a Drink-O Ice Sculpture!
You grab a game piece, drop it into the Drink-O board, and leave your beverage selection up to the Glacial Gods!
There's heaters outside to help keep you warm too.
So have frosty fun outside and then inside to the market hall to grab a bite from the more than 20 artisan food vendors.
Vendors include Slows BBQ, Tacos El Cunado, Juju Bird, Pink Tail Poke, and Apertivo.
Check out all the food at the Downtown Market here.
