To add to this though normally the drinks are served in glasses made of ice and your seats are ice blocks shaped into chairs and covered in blankets/fur for your comfort.

You’re probably thinking that sounds too cold for me, but normally the venue provides an insulated jacket and gloves to help you keep warm.
