Hage, who previously owned a pub in Jounieh, says he was looking to come up with a more "monopolistic" concept that wouldn't have competition, rather than "just opening another bar or pub".The idea struck during his summer vacation to the Greek island of Rhodes, where Hage came across the concept of an ice bar and was smitten. Another difference between Lebanon and countries like Russia, Sweden and Poland, where ice bars have become part of the drinking landscape, is the country's intractable electricity crisis and warm, Mediterranean climate, requiring great amounts of power to keep the building frozen.In addition to the bar's ice-brick walls and the blocks of ice covered with pelts to serve as benches, the decorations and even the glasses are all carved out of ice.
