Orlando is the land of make-believe. And while those fantasies tend to be the G-rated type, sometimes the theme-park town ups its cool factor and appeals to you.
Introducing Icebar, a year-round arctic-themed nightspot, surreally located in the middle of the Sunshine State.
Think of Icebar as your new 27-degree hangout, a place to kick back, let loose and maybe uncover some cold hard truths when things in Miami get a little overheated. You'll feel like you stumbled onto the set of From Russia with Love, complete with waitresses dressed in white snow suits and communist-sexy fur hats.
After you've paid the entry fee, you're issued a thermal cape and gloves to embark on your arctic adventure. Each visit is limited to 45 minutes: enough time to savor a cocktail in a glass carved from ice as you lounge on ice blocks draped with fur throws and admire the sculpted fireplace, lit with low-wattage electric flames.
When you're in the mood to defrost, retreat to the Chill Lounge, a silver and white antechamber bedecked with glowing Lucite tables, crystal chandeliers and caviar service.
Or you could always devise other ways of keeping warm.
