A salt that is normally liquid even at STP is usually called a room temperature ionic liquid, although technically molten salts are a class of ionic liquids.

    And but for fancies, which aver
    That all thy motions gently pass
    Athwart a plane of molten glass,
    I scarce could brook the strain and stir
