Czar Ice Bar is the newest addition to the East Andrews complex, located in Buckhead. It joins the Cellar 56, Prohibition, Sal’s Pizzeria, Stout Irish Sports Bar, East Andrews Cafe and Andrews Upstairs family. It is located at the top of stairs once you enter the courtyard. The seating capacity isn’t much (only 75) but it is certainly a beautiful space. The bar is coolest place to sit, literally. It is made of a 4 inch layer of ice, which will certainly keep your cocktail cool. With over 300 different kinds of vodka, it is a vodka lover’s paradise.
Besides the bar, there are several small tables throughout the restaurant as well as some couches, perfect for a large group. You’ll have a harder time choosing a cocktail than sushi. There are so many to choose from. Some of the highlights are the Kiwi Collins or any number of champagne cocktails. Or get a vodka tasting, served in an ice block.
I appreciate that the sushi menu has a good selection but isn’t overwhelming as some sushi menus can be. Make sure to get the Mango sushi, the mango sauce mixing well with the spicy sauce. Another stand out is the Lobster in Love which is more like a basil roll in appearance than sushi. It was tasty but I could have done with a little less cream cheese.
After getting your fill of sushi, head down the stairs and over to the phone booth which lets you in to Prohibition, the speakeasy with tasty cocktails.
