Ice House Lounge offers patrons chance to chill


LAS VEGAS -- The Ice House Lounge is this city's hottest new spot north of the Strip.

"Trendy" is written all over it, from the art deco exterior -- complete with a stylized, melting ice waterfall -- to an interior that sports a decor that embraces both vintage Las Vegas photographs and techy plasma-screen TVs.

Ice-topped bars -- found on the main floor and on a second level reached via a floating staircase -- hold down the temperatures of the specialty martinis and other selections from the extensive beer and wine list.

Guests also can settle into booths, banquettes or at a pair of communal tables.

The Ice House, which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, 24 hours a day, houses a trio of well-credentialed chefs and turns out some interesting takes on the classics -- which can come together as, for example, filet and egg Napoleon, antipasto roll, veggie steak, pork Wellington and spaghetti "meatblock."

Located at 650 S. Main St. -- just south of the Bonneville connector to the west side in an area of downtown that is under renewal -- the Ice House is convenient to downtown hotels, businesses and government facilities as well as the new Las Vegas Premium Outlets.
