In the late 19th century, a fearless New Zealand adventurer named Rockwell buck he left alone on expedition through the North Pole
When his ice-cut ship was trapped in the Arctic, he had no choice but to spend the harsh winter in a remote Russian whaling town, with little more than local women and immense amounts of vodka to warm up the long Arctic nights.
In 1908 Buck finally returned to New Zealand, bringing with it countless polar stories and a good amount of pure authentic vodka. His legacy was going on since then among the Rockwells. Until in 2003, it was at the hands of his great-grandson Craig, who came up with the brilliant idea of creating the first vodka bar below zero.
Minus 5 Bar It is a place where everything, absolutely everything, is made of ice. The walls, the bar, the sculptures that decorate the place, the seats, and even the glasses in which these famous cocktails made from vodka are served.
Dressed in an Eskimo style, we enjoy the beauty of a couple of rounds of the delicious vodka that is served in this curious joint. Ice sculptures everywhere, ice-covered chairs with skins, lots of bottles of vodka and a waiter that is relieved every 30 minutes, is practically everything you find in this bar where you will be less than 5 degrees temperature and in which they do not allow you to be more than half an hour.
If you pass by Auckland, New Zealand, do not hesitate to drop by Minus 5 Bar and have a good coup; Perhaps the best opportunity of your life to drink vodka without ice.
