The Portland Harbor Hotel in downtown Portland, Maine, is hosting its annual Ice Bar Jan. 24-26, featuring martini bars pouring specialty cocktails, as well as an ice bar serving local beers. The ice bar is carved outside in the hotel's courtyard and is surrounded by fire pits and ice sculptures. Inside, music is provided by a DJ along with free samples of food from area restaurants.

It's a popular event, organizers say, with tickets selling out quickly in advance; they are  not available at the door. Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets, www.brownpapertickets.com, and are $20 each, for those 21 and older.

The Portland Harbor Hotel has overnight stays from $189 for double occupancy, including two tickets to the event and two drink vouchers for the ice bar. Rooms must be booked by calling 207-775-9090.
