The Sagamore Resort’s Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge

2022 Dates: January 21 - 22 & 28 - 29

Our ninth annual Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge at The Sagamore Resort is one of the coolest events in the Northeast. See the transformation of 18,000 pounds of crystal-clear ice into one of the “hottest and coolest lounges” in the Adirondacks. Exquisite ice carvings and sub-freezing temperatures make this swanky sight an unforgettable experience, and a must attend event! After sipping cocktails at the Ice Bar, step inside and warm up next to the cozy fireplace at Caldwell’s Lounge or enjoy a warm meal at La Bella Vita or Mr. Browns Pub!
