You can only stay at GlacioBar for 20 minutes ... in a special cape

(Newser) – Well traveled tipplers should add Patagonia, Argentina, to their itineraries. A bar billed as the only one made (carved?) out of glacial ice opened there last week. Bellying up to this bar—whose specialty is Coke served with a bitter spirit called Fernet—is a little more involved: You'll don a cape, gloves, and boots, explains the New York Times, and your bar-hop will be limited to 20 minutes. Which is probably a good thing, since the temp is kept at 17.6 degrees, reports TweetTravelers.

But plenty awaits once you leave: GlacioBar is a part of the Glaciarium, a science museum that celebrates the area's myriad glaciers. But if you can't get to South America, don't fret: There are other ice bars around the world, though they're made of regular old ice.

A little closer to home, and with less special attire: And the hotsprings are to die for.
