Confirming paperwork filed earlier this week, Sprinkles Cupcakes is departing the Strip’s Linq Promenade and will be replaced at its five-year old, prominent corner location by the latest expansion for the Minus5° Ice Experience.

July 5 will be the final day for the cupcakes, ice cream and pioneering outdoor cake ATM, but the Beverly Hills-born brand promises it still has “two” Strip locations in the works, confidently predicting they will both debut later this year. Exact sites, or recent building permits have yet to be uncovered.

The Sprinkles cupcake ATM machines will continue to be freshly stocked at McCarran International Airport, close to Gates C24, D51, E3, and E10.

And within hours of revealing the Minus5° Ice Experience will be creating a new icebar, the company also shared details of what to expect when it moves next door to the Brooklyn Bowl venue this November.

Allocating an estimated $750,000 for construction costs alone, the new icebar will feature a 600-square-foot “warm space” front entrance and a 1,200-square-foot “ice bar” inside. The 1,000-square-foot patio next door to In-N-Out Burger will also be retained.

A popular tourist attraction at Mandalay Bay and the Venetian, the interior bar is created out of genuine Canadian ice, including the walls, seats, and drinking glasses.

Customers can rent parkas, or faux fur coats, arrange for professionally staged photographs of their visit, and order from the cocktail menu a ”Chilly Margarita,” “Icy Banana,” and the vodka infused “Polar Breeze,” or “Icy Mudslide.”
