A guest at the just opened Czar Ice Bar in Buckhead was sent to the hospital over the weekend after an incident involving a liquid nitrogen-chilled beverage. Firm details are scarce, but a rep for the bar, which offers over 300 vodkas and a 27 foot bar made of ice, tell the Atlanta Journal Constitution that the guest has fully recovered but bar will no longer be fiddling with liquid nitrogen because they cannot "take the risk."
Unfortunate incidents aside, plans are still on for the bar and restaurant's grand opening party on the Friday. The theme may sounds Russian, but they're actually serving a menu of sushi to go along with those vodkas, which are all described in detail on Kindle devices (an interesting choice as many restaurants turn to the iPad) throughout the space. Please send all early intel and feedback on Czar to the Eater Atlanta tipline.
