Gigantic stone warriors guard the entryway of Forbidden City, make your way downstairs to the Bar Cocoon, relax and lie down on numerous opium-style daybeds, although no opium is provided. Drop in on Wednesdays where Babes and Bubbles Ladies Night is in full-swing with buy one get one deals on Veuve Clicquot champagne (by the glass), selected cocktails, house wines and beers. The Ice Palace bar seats and bar top are made from solid blocks of ice and seats ten persons. Is it worth the special cover charge to knock back a few 42 Below Vodka shots ($15 each) in minus-5 degree Celsius? That depends on your point of view, although it seems to be a “popular thing to do” as every steamy, major city in Southeast Asian has their own version of the same theme.
