Shiver Vodka Bar & Champagne Lounge is as Hot As Ice
Wash Ave.s latest haunt is cool as hell.
Referring to Downtown’s latest destination as a hotspot is inaccurate—if you define that literally. Shiver Vodka Bar & Champagne Lounge is a cool, new destination on Washington Avenue and is anything but your run-of-the-mill bar and lounge. For starters, you can order over 150 premium vodkas and 25 champagnes. And then there’s the walk-in vodka freezer—or rather the “Shiver Experience.” For $20, you are outfitted in a parka, gloves and boots and are ushered into this teeth-chattering room where you take vodka shots out of ice glasses and sit on delicately carved ice furniture. Once you’ve finished your cool experience, warm yourself with bites from their small plates menu of American cuisine or decadent dessert or hang out in the chic, laidback lounge (1130 Washington Ave., 314.241.3900).
