      Tired, Still Broken, and Unbearably Loud Drag
      This place should have burned down along with the hotel! There are leaks everywhere, including behind the bar. Peeling paint abounds (probably from the awful screeching they call a drag show). They were tasked with making lunch for a group of 40 men (hamburgers and hots) at noon and the grills were not even lit until 2pm! Oh, what's that? More drag during lunch?!? You bet! The divas that perform here need to be taken out to pasture and learn that no matter how LOUD you turn your amplifiers up, the world does NOT revolve around you! We ditched this place on Friday and also on Saturday, due to the unbearably LOUD "performance". I go to the clubs/bars to meet people. I can't do that over an obnoxious drag queen at 150db! The guys with me (about 40 in total) all abandoned the Ice Palace mid-day and went to the Belvedere instead where drag can't get past the front door.

      The bartenders need hospitality training!
      First of all, I feel like the bartenders were ignoring me and not attentive to me. It took me too long to get there attention to get a drink. One of the bartenders was not friendly at all. The place had a mixed, diverse crowd. On a good night this place is probably hot but when I was there it was not.

      Hates it

      The Grove Hotel is currently in ruins due to the fire and this club is adjacent to it. I don't know how the fire department didn't condemn the entire complex.

      Horrible... Minus 5 out of 10 points...
      Went to the pool party in ice palace this Sunday. Drag queens-very low grade for performance, trashy, idiotic comments with no sense whatsoever, self absorbed with one goal - collect money from people there. They don't give a fuck. Nothing constructive, only destructive elements - no wonder str8 community looks at us down... Music: horrible. The only thing I enjoyed was the drink. 2 hours wasted there for nothing.

      Great Summer spot
      I went for my birthday July 22-25 2010 , my friend and i had a blast! The underwear party one that everyone should experience , must i say more? The Saturday at the Ice Palace the pool party was very entertaining and the drag queens did an excellent job working the crowd. There so much to see and do there you must visit.

      Great underwear party
      Went one night in matching underwear with my friend. The staff was awesome and waved us in with our Belvedere bracelets. The staff/bartenders were attentive (and I'm picky because I am a bartender). We had a LOT of fun. lol.

      HOT Underwear parties
      The Daniel Nardicio Underwear parties hosted this past summer have been HOT. Much improved over the ones held at the Tides last year. Lots of people, hot boys of all shapes and sizes, and just good fun. And of course a crazy back room... I do hate that it's a mandatory clothes check to get into the main bar, and they charge you $3 on top of the $10 cover.

      Gay Grease Memories...
      I had the pleasure of doing a show at the Ice Palace that was a gay version of "Grease" a few years back. While the show was pretty horrible, the crowd had a great time because the bartenders kept the drinks going and kept up a great atmosphere. The owners donated the stage and all the proceeds to GMHC! So even if the place isn't the most fantastic club on earth, their hearts are in the right place. We always had fun drinking here after the show, and the pool parties were a blast!

      Hopefully Getting Better
      The good news is that there are now new owners and are giving the place a long over due makeover!!!! They have lost all the great bartenders over the years to Cherrys. The shows are always fun and the new bartenders are great as well, I believe with the makeover and corrections it will be rockin again this year
