NEW YORK, Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA is throwing the ultimate home entertainment-themed party with a multi-room pop-up bar in New York City this week (Sept. 19-22) and inviting guests to raise a glass to the industry's first-ever refrigerator to produce large, slow-melting ice: the LG InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Refrigerators with Craft Ice.™
Along with cooling and styling upgrades, the new LG InstaView Refrigerators are the first and only to produce automatically three custom types of ice: slow-melting, round LG Craft Ice in the freezer drawer, and cubed and crushed ice in the door. And with LG's new measured water dispenser, consumers can expertly create the perfect drink right at home – from craft cocktails and whiskey to lemonade and iced coffee. 1
At the "The Craft Ice House by LG," guests can experience first-hand how LG InstaView Refrigerators with Craft Ice take home entertaining to the next level while enjoying artfully crafted (and complimentary) cocktails and mocktails created by leading local mixologists featuring LG's exclusive Craft Ice, along with live music, games and an epic cocktail competition between two iconic ices: Vanilla Ice and Ice-T.
The Craft Ice House features four distinct home settings – a family room, garden patio, whiskey library and game room – with each demonstrating how LG InstaView Refrigerators are the ultimate home entertaining advantage. And to tackle cleanup, LG QuadWash™ dishwashers with TrueSteam® will be on hand, eliminating water spots on glassware by up to 60 percent.*
"No matter the type of gathering you're hosting, LG's InstaView Refrigerators with Craft Ice can help you take home entertaining to the next level – bringing tools typically found at an upscale bar right to your kitchen," said David VanderWaal, senior vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "From our industry-leading home appliances – hailed by consumers time and time again for their performance and reliability – to our best-in-class electronics like LG OLED TVs and mobile devices, only LG can help you entertain like a pro at home from start to finish."
Throughout the weekend, guests are invited to make themselves at home and enjoy artfully crafted libations by top mixologists like Pernod Ricard's national mixologist, Jane Danger (beverage director, Mother of Pearl), Elliot Clark ("Apartment Bartender"), Stacie Grissom (blogger behind "Garden Cocktail"), and Rael Petit (food & beverage manager, Tribeca Grand Hotel). All will be on hand to show guests how to up their cocktail game at home with Craft Ice from the new LG InstaView Refrigerators.
The Craft Ice House will feature a series of programming with opportunities for guests to join:
