Want a different way to cool down during the dog days of summer? Then you should pay a visit to Mehanata’s subzero drinking lounge - which includes Balkan rhythms, frosty ceilings, and a stripper pole. An ethereal Siberian paradise featuring Manhattan’s only ICE CAGE freezer room. $10 to open the door, $20 per head. You’ll be clothed in a Russian military uniform and handed an ice shot glass. The walls are lined with vodka - but don’t get mesmerized. You’ve got two minutes to drink as much as you can.
