If you've been missing patio days, then you'll be happy to hear you don't have to wait until summer to enjoy a few drinks outside. Even in the chilliest of seasons, guests at this bar are still lounging on this outdoor patio in true Canadian fashion. Take a trip to this spot and embrace the winter temperatures while sipping boozy beverages. Ottawa's rooftop ice bar is the coolest place to drink at this week.
While summer is nowhere in sight, cooler weather hasn't stopped this bar from keeping the party going outdoors.
Andaz Ottawa Byward Market is hosting a Copper On Ice cocktail bar in celebration of Winterlude.
This weekend is your last chance to visit this Elsa-worthy spot. The event will run from February 14 to 16 this week.
“We can’t think of a more Canadian way to celebrate Winterlude and greet our guests than with an outdoor ice bar on our rooftop," Matt Graham, General Manager of Andaz Ottawa ByWard Market told Narcity.
The rooftop ice bar has a frozen, glassy cocktail counter and crackling fire pits to keep you warm.
You can sip winter-themed cocktails all evening long, and enjoy live DJs while you chill.
To make the event even more Canadian, some of the cocktails are maple-inspired.
The Cabot Trail Coffee is spiked with maple cream spirit that will warm you up on even the coldest of nights.
You can drink a Caribou cocktail from the Ice Luge, which is made with J.P. Wiser’s whiskey, Niagara red wine and maple syrup.
You can even indulge in some maple syrup taffy to add a bit of sweetness to the evening.
Tickets are $10 each and include organic maple taffy from Älska Farm.
If you're booking a stay at the hotel, you can use the promo code ICEBAR to get two admission tickets and two free cocktails.
You can also visit an ice bar in Kingston, where you can take winter-themed shots from frozen glasses.
Winterlude is ending this weekend, so make sure you check out all the fun, snowy activities before it's over for another year.
