Hand-carved ice bar opening in Old City

Hurry to the pop-up before it melts

Food & Drink Bars
La Peg outside M. Edlow/Visit Philadelphia™

A contemporary brasserie set in the Fringe Arts building, chef Peter Woolsey’s La Peg boasts industrial-chic glamour and an unparalleled view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

UPDATE: Pegsicle has started melting but fear not. Today, on Nov. 9, the ice bar will be demolish and replaced by a second Pegsicle. 

Woolsey will carve the ice bar beginning at 5 p.m. All are invited to see him in action. 

Pegsicle will welcome drinkers until it melts a second time.

On Feb. 1, La Peg at FringeArts will debut Pegsicle, a limited-edition ice bar. The concept was created by chef-owner Peter Woolsey.

Woolsey will hand carve the bar out of 16 blocks of ice, using chainsaws and a set of Japanese ice chisels. He will also carve a shot luge.

Below is Woolsey's hand-drawn sketch of the bar.

Pegsicle will only be at La Peg through Feb. 13 (unless it melts before).

The pop-up outdoor bar will offer an assortment of drinks, including hot cocktails like mulled wine and spiked hot cocoa. 

Attendees can sip their drinks under sparkly lights, next to cozy fire pits or looking out at the Ben Franklin Bridge.                                                   

The drink specials at Pegsicle will include:

• Hot drinks ($7): mulled red wine and spiked hot chocolate

• Cocktails ($7): rum daiquiri, Moscow mule and celery tonic with gin

• Canned beers and cider ($5): Sly Fox 113 IPA, Stillwater Classique Saison, Oskar Blues Old Chub Scotch Ale and Blackbird Cider Works Apple Cider

• Wine ($7)

• Shots from the hand-carved ice shot luge ($4): Kamikaze, Surfer on Acid and Jägermeister
