The Ice Bar at Vertigo Sky Lounge in the Dana Hotel just re-launched for the rest of winter. Sponsored by Svedka and celebrated with an Akira show, last Friday guests drank their sniffles away. At the bar you can don a floor length maroon Harry-Potter-seque robe or a faux fur pelt and be fed flaming club shots.

At the launch, Akira styled their models in glitzy party dresses fur, and hot & heavy winter boots followed by a short presentation of what their stocking for spring.
