Your bartop is nicked and scratched and needs a lift - get the Icebar!

A 10mm high lipped metal plate constructed to your bar's width and length, filled with water and cooled until ice. Cooling mechanics secreted under the existing bar surface. The low lip stops drinks from ending up in people's laps. A variety of edgings for a classy finish. Deeper profile capacity for underlighting. Got a nick? Simply fill with water, wait, and rub back with a warm damp cloth for a great finish.

Slide those glasses like a pro. Keeps your drinks cold and your bar even cooler.

       This idea isn't terrible. That's all I need. +

       Yep, I love this idea. Instead of doing the measly old rub-an-ice-cube-over-my-cleavage routine I could just slide my whole body up and down the bar top. Ha, just kidding. I don't rub an ice cube over my cleavage. Seriously, I don't. Um, is it getting hot in here?

       Also, some circle-shaped low-reliefs should be carved on the ice to fit the bottom of the glass and keep the drinks from slipping.

       Love it... Also, metal bowls with flat foot plates that extend beyond their perimeter could be set into the ice (ie, place in water prior to freezing) to provide a 'dry' but chilled environment for bar snacks.
