A Coors ice bar will open in Windrush Square on Saturday, despite objections from some residents.
The free pop-up Ice Bar bar will be in situ from Saturday 13-18th December, a decision which has caused a number of residents to vent their anger on social media sites. Jennifer says “So for years they try to get the drunks out of the square and now they put a bar in it…..lol. How ironic,” Gillian says “This makes me furious” and Vanessa critisises what she deems “corporate money making schemes taking over a public space meant for all to enjoy”.
The venue will be decked out as one part alpine lodge and one part ice bar with temperatures plummeting to -5°c. Thermal capes and gloves will be offered to wear inside, and paying for drinks is done using ‘intelligent wristbands’.
After its Brixton tenure, the Ice Bar heads to Manchester.
General admission to the Ice Bar and alpine lodge is free and done through: CoorsLight.co.uk/IceBar/London.
