More than just a world class hotel, Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Johannesburg Melrose Arch offers amenities such as an ultra-chic restaurant, a luxe bar and three modern conference rooms. But a lesser known fact is that the hotel brags with one of Melrose Arch’s most treasured gems, its milkshake bar. Set up as a little kiosk next to the beautiful shattered glass stained bar serving signature cocktails, the milkshake bar acts as an oasis of indulgence far removed from the hustle and bustle of big city life.
With 38 dazzling and daring flavours, each handcrafted milkshake is an ode to all things tasty and proof that milkshakes are not only a hot topic at the moment, but fit for all ages. Flaunting its style, there is no such thing as plain on the menu, with exciting items such as Salted Caramel Popcorn, Carrot Cake and Rooibos as well as flavours like Pumpkin, Marshmallows and Caramel making an appearance. Looking at the menu, it becomes evident that the Milkshake Bar conjures up more than just age old ice cream mixed with milk.
A section of the list is dedicated to milkshakes for adults. Boozy entries such as Springbokkies (peppermint liquor), Tongue Twister (apple sours) and Tequila Mocking Bird (tequila) are some of the many options available. Each milkshake – both alcoholic and non-alcoholic – can be ordered in half or full pints. We implore that you swing by the hotel and try the Milkshake Bar for yourself – the Choc Rock Climber is a total must!
