A manufactured Las Vegas breeze blows into town, with this outpost of the Sin City ice bar at the New York Hilton Midtown. Set to a frosty -5°C (23°F), the 2,500-square-foot bar is made with 90 tons of hand-carved Canadian ice, from the furniture to the glasses. Insulated faux-fur jackets and gloves are available to keep you toasty while sipping the fruity vodka cocktails: The Snowflake features cherry vodka, peach schnapps and white-cranberry juice; and the Ice Man has berry vodka, pineapple and coconut juice.
