Too close to the sun?

Sadly, it has been some years since I was last in Vienna. When there I was somewhat bemused by one of the bars at the airport - a bar I understand to be still there. Why call a bar in an airport the Ikarus Bar? With all the connotations with falling from the sky, I would have thought Icarus to be the last person with whom one would want to be associated before getting on an aeroplane. (And I say this not as a superstitious person.)
