We got a groupon for the ice cage. it is hyped up to be something really amazing. It is the size of a closet. Inside it is cold....not freezing. There are bottles of vodka in the room. You get ice shot glasses and fun gear...More

This is a weird place. Good for a hipster crowd, good beer selection, more on the exotic side with the beers. It's a moody place which on some nights can be cool and some nights, disappointing.

Each club offers its own flavor and I've given a high rating but within the category of experience that you are seeking. Mehanata doesn't offer a fancy venue. The place is small, the ice bar downstairs is a 4x4 foot plexiglass cell and the bar...More

If your looking for an Ice Bar...don't come here NOT WORTH IT !!! The ice bar is the size of a shoebox, they over charge you...it just wasn't a good experience.

The Ice cage is not worth a visit. The bar is good. Dont expect anything extraordinary and you wont be disappointed.

Thankfully I read a lot of reviews on the ice cage so I didn't have false expectations. Went for a Groupon and thank goodness because it's definitely not worth full price. Negative reviews are somewhat accurate but exaggerated. "Ice Cage" itself is very small more...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
