Monte Carlo To Get Minus5 Ice Bar Too

Monte Carlo, known the world over as the flaming gateway to CityCenter, will be getting a slight bit cooler this fall as a second Las Vegas outpost of the Minus5 bar opens in September.

Minus5 Ice Lounge opened at Mandalay Bay in September 2008, our original thoughts are still valid with one caveat... they really should rename the place.

Our suggestion? Minneapolis.


Comments & Discussion:

"November Evening Almost Anywhere In Canada" has a catchy ring to it.

This thing has been under construction at the old location of Burton's baubles and gifts since, oh, well, whenever I last took blurry pictures.

They should have opened it at PH, then they could have named it "Fargo" and had wax statues of William H. Macy and Tony Blundetto. Plus a woodchipper in front of red tinted Ice wall.

Or just call it Moscow and make it a vodka bar.

Minus5 isn't popular enough to warrant a second strip location. I've never seen a line at the MB location and I can't see how they are making any money. It's a nice gimmick, but its too much time, cost, and effort for one drink. They did improve the MB location last year with a nice adjoining bar.

Remember the article about MGM selling Mandalay off a couple days back?

Maybe they are opening a Minus5 in Monte Carlo because MGM loves it so much and they won't have it anymore if they sell MB. Just a thought.

Just another note, the front VP bar at Monte Carlo is completely walled off now too with a sign for the "Ignite" lounge opening late summer. I think putting a lounge there is a solid choice for a property that needs something on the casino floor, at least it's not just minus 5 (which is in the same area up front). So it appears they are going with a fire and ice theme. Now if they could just update the MC casino floor carpets, they maybe onto something with the restaurants they've put online over the past couple years.
