“Ice bars were started in Scandinavia where people would drink ice cold beverages, in specialized cold bars, whilst wearing extreme weather clothing. Here in the mountains of Western North Carolina, I took the concept of the ice bar and the benefits of serving all the various alcohol, beers and wines at their optimum temperatures to create the 32 Degrees Ice Bar and Lounge” stated Aleks. “We did not want people to come in from the cold and stay in the cold here drinking, so we have created unique environment, with a 30 foot long ice rail, as well as two ice caves. We are not only a unique ice bar, but also a Lounge, where we are serving a full menu. We have 65 seats in the Ice Bar and Lounge, with flat screen TV’s, and will also provide a takeout menu as well. The full Acropolis Pizza menu is available plus special additions only available in the Lounge.”
The combined kitchen will serve both Acropolis and the new Ice Bar and will have an expanded menu. The menu contains the new Yugo Burger, which is a mixed patty of beef, lamb and pork, with diced onions and spices served on a Kaiser roll. New sauté dishes, showcasing the old world with Marsala, Francese and Piccata sauces, have also been added to the menu.
As part of establishing Asheville’s first Ice Bar and Lounge, effective signage had to be created. “We had already had our logo created, and the graphic artist recommended Asheville SIGNARAMA for our signs. The team at Asheville SIGNARAMA did a great job. Every step of the way they informed us of the process including installation. With the first sign up already, it has already generated a lot of interest and the question keeps getting asked ‘when are we opening?’”
32 Degrees Ice Bar and Lounge is committed to the promotion and enjoyment of the local craft beers. They will have 20 beers on tap, with the majority being Asheville’s craft beers. “Asheville has become known as ‘Beer City USA’, so in addition to the concept of the Ice Bar, we wanted to create the only location in the area that you can find the majority of Asheville’s craft beers.” In addition to the beers on tap, they will also have another 20 bottled beers as well; enabling patron’s a choice of over 40 beers to choose from. Every beverage will be served at its optimum temperature. Lagers will be poured at 32 degrees, while the craft beers will be served at 40-41 degrees, allowing the taste, aroma and character of the beer to be at their best. The liquors will be served between -5 and 5 degrees. An eclectic wine list is also available, featuring wines from Argentina, New Zealand, California, French, Sicilian and Italian.
“We’re the first specialty Ice Bar and Lounge, showcasing the areas great American Craft beers, along with great food, wines, and top shelf spirits, all served at their optimum temperature. Acropolis our parent restaurant is well known as wonderful family restaurant; the 32 Degrees Ice Bar and Lounge will be open later and will cater to a larger adult audience. The Bar also showcases an enviable list of top shelf liquors and spirits and have a large martini and cocktail list for our patrons enjoyment.”
Acropolis Pizza was also known for only taking cash or checks; with the addition of 32 Degree Ice Bar and Lounge, this has changed and both establishments take credit/debit cards as well. Located next to Acropolis Pizza on 140 Airport Road, 32 Degrees Ice Bar and Lounge are looking forward to an exciting launch this coming Super Bowl Sunday and a successful 2013.
