Head North, Where Being BLU Feels Oh So Good! BLU Ice Bar and Lounge in Two Harbors Featuring NEW Ice Lodge Theme. Don’t Miss This MUST-EXPERIENCE Destination!
Opens on the Winter Solstice - Friday, December 21st at 4:00pm.
The wildly popular BLU, Ice Bar and Lounge at Grand Superior Lodge in Two Harbors is opening its icy doors for a third season. This year BLU’s “chill” atmosphere, is bigger and includes an ice-made lodge complete with the warm glow of a fireplace and mantel that will display ice-carved trophy fish and game, a 6-foot carved moose in a wall of ice and countless activities in BLU’s 2,000 square feet of “chill” space. Construction on BLU begins on December 14th when a semi-truck loaded with 51,000 pounds of ice will arrive at Grand Superior Lodge. A team of internationally acclaimed ice carvers with the help of additional area carvers will work with 170 blocks of ice. Each block weighs 300 pounds. Additional trucks will bring snow which will be used to create the “logs” included in BLU’s ice log lounge theme for 2012/213. Once complete, BLU will contain 27,000 gallons of water frozen, sculpted and perfected for an ice experience like nothing else out there!
BLU will feature an entertainment area and five different games including ice beer pong and the stump game. Enjoy drink specials served in ice shot glasses while sitting outside next to a roaring bonfire!
