MEET SANTA CLAUS & FROZEN'S ELSA THIS CHRISTMAS... HOT COCOA + HOLIDAY COOKIES + ICE BAR When we think of Christmas time it often conjures up thoughts of cold snowy nights, beautiful fur coats, and sipping hot cocoa by the fire place.

For the first time ever have your kids experience Winter in Miami with Santa Claus & Elsa at Drinkhouse Fire & Ice, Miami’s first Ice Bar. Bring the kids for a whimsical afternoon with a very classy and merry Santa Claus.
