SocialICE – Rochester Minnesota's Ice Bar – transforms the Peace Plaza in the heart of downtown Rochester to an outdoor ice bar experience. The event generates an artistic and sophisticated social gathering place complete with lighting effects, music, ice sculptures, drinks, and more. Come to SocialICE and you'll experience seven 12-foot uniquely designed and themed ice bars – each with a signature drink! This event is FREE to attend and open to the public.


SocialICE caters to a wide variety of musical tastes with live DJs each night. Our DJs will energize the crowd with a mix of hits and classics spun with talent and skill that only a live DJ can. If that wasn’t enough, their visually-stunning DJ booth is fully iced-out in ice and dressed in special-effects lighting and pixel-mapped LED screens.
