Miami, FL – In the heart of Miami Beach, Sally Drinkhouse and Nicole Pritchett are opening one of the coolest additions to the hottest city in Florida: ice bar and premier lounge Drinkhouse Fire and Ice, the first of its kind in South Florida, is set to open in the fall across from the Ritz-Carlton in South Beach.
Every inch of the bar will be made from ice, from the furniture to the art and even the drink glasses. However, one of the most notable features of the ice bar is its state of the art LED light system and energetic décor – selenite tables, crystals and photography by Peter Lik, one of the world’s most renowned landscape photographers.
“Selenite is a powerful crystal known for its ability to remove negativity from its surroundings,” says Drinkhouse.
The bar will also feature world-class ice sculptures and unique hand-carved pieces courtesy of award-winning ice sculptor David Berman.
"I think this city is ready for a truly unique entertainment experience," says Drinkhouse.
On the weekends the lounge will feature both locally and internationally-known DJ’s, as well as feature talented choreographers from around the world, like internet sensation Lady Casa, whose following is incomparable in the nightlife dance scene.
In addition to the Ice bar, Samadhi lounge, a ‘warm’ bar and elite speakeasy located within the ice bar, will feature unpretentious service, energetic décor, and the freshest ingredients mixed with the finest spirits to offer exceptional cocktails and an intimate, memorable experience.
The temperature inside the bar will be kept at a cool 23 degrees and guests will be supplied with faux fur-lined hooded capes and leather gloves to keep warm.

Tonight the happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic and his guests want to help empower you to manage your diabetes with confidence, knowledge and inspiration from Lisa Stansfield.
In the late 80's and throughout the 90's, Lisa Stansfield was one of the coolest popstars on the planet. Her seductive, soulful vocals and timeless dance-pop songs took her to the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Four of her albums were international hits selling more that 15 million copes and spawning over 20 hit singles. We will be playing many of Lisa's biggest hits on this podcast courtesy of SONY MUSIC.
Lisa Stansfield is inspiring us to 'throwback' and talk about the concept of 'reversing diabetes.' Many people find the term "reversing diabetes" to be very misleading. How about you? While you may not be able to reverse diabetes you certainly can reverse some things in life like your car, DVD or even this podcast! We're flipping the script on this podcast and presenting our regular show format from back to front because we hope to inspire you to look back at past mistakes with a new attitude. Mistakes teach important lessons. Every time you make one, you're one step closer to your goal: optimum health.There's no room for shame or blame when you're able to accept your diagnosis. Let us help empower you to look back at your life with the satisfaction of knowing that diabetes didn't dim your dazzle!
Diabetes Late Nite guests include Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE, Kathy Gold RN, CDE, Neva White DNP, CRNP, CDE, the Digital Divas, Jessica Issler RD, CDE, Poet Lorraine Brooks, Mama Rose Marie and special guest, Cheri from Long Island, NY.
