Square Ice Cubes for Chicago Bars and Restaurants

For years, square ice cubes have been the go-to choice for lovers of high-end cocktails and top-shelf spirits. They’re solid and melt slowly, so they won’t dilute the flavor of drinks that deserve to be savored. Savvy cocktail bar owners know that ice can make or break a nice cocktail. We offer square ice cube machines from Manitowoc and Hoshizaki in a range of sizes.

Elevate Drinks with Hoshizaki Square Ice Cubes


Hoshizaki square ice cubes are 1” x 1” x 1 ¼”, large enough to stay intact in any drink. The Hoshizaki IM square ice cube maker uses only the cleanest water, so cubes are always crystal clear. Square ice cubes refract light in dazzling patterns and look great in darker spirits like whiskeys, scotches, and dark rums. Just like the Hoshizaki KM machines, their square ice cube maker produces cubes individually to prevent clumping.
