Washington D.C.’s Donovan House Transforms Rooftop ADC Lounge to Winter Ice Bar

February 8, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Donovan House, Washington DCDonovan House, the decidedly hip hotel located in up and coming Thomas Circle, has unveiled a winter ice bar sponsored by Russian Standard Vodka. Open on Friday and Saturday evenings from 5 pm - 10 pm throughout the month of February, the ice bar is located in the exclusive rooftop pool lounge called ADC (Above DC). Order up a hot mulled wine or creative libation made with house-made infused vodka, and grab a spot by the fire pit to ogle the crowd and the sweeping view over the nation's capital. Daily Candy digs the "Ice Flurry," made with lychee puree, orange bitters, and vodka. We also like the sound of the "Drunken Spiced Cocoa"-- for adults only. Here's Urban Daddy's assessment:

You’ve been up here on the rooftop of the Donovan House hotel in the summer for the great view and the poolside frolicking. But now, it’s as if the whole thing has been transported to Norway.

You’ll lead your date onto the blustery roof and to the bar, which is now made totally out of ice (refrigeration not required). There, you’ll find an ice luge for frosty shots, as well as parka-clad bartenders sliding you glasses of champagne and drinks like the Morello Fire (sake, chili-infused vodka and cherry puree).
