$15 entry was good for what it was! Don't buy many drinks in there, far too expensive and weak. We had a shot just for the novelty of drinking in an ice-bar out of an ice-cup. Maybe pre-drink a little so you can have a good giggle at the photo booths they've set up in there :) Make sure they... More

To charge an entrance fee of $15 for something that is tiny and not spectacular at all us just greedy. Expensive, weak cocktails. Not worth the visit.

Novel idea well received by all our party...Thought it was a little small to accommodate the amount of people they allowed to go in at the one time, especially for bar staff..Maybe bookings essential.. Sculptures are very clever.Loved the idea of posing for unlimited pictures... We felt the cocktails were very small, but loved the thick ice glasses they came... More

The staff were awesome, $15 each to get into a steel box about 25m2, terrible ice sculptures, lame animal skins and a $17 cocktail that was half the portion you'd expect. Maybe if you were a little drunk and with a group you'd enjoy yourself more?

We visited this bar during the Melbourne tennis open and wish we did not bother. Admittedly we did visit the bar towards the end of the night but still did not expect to be rushed through as quick as we were. All around us they were packing the bar up and finishing for the night. I would not have minded... More

You pay an entry fee of $15, once inside the drinks are overpriced and you are not allowed to use your own camera. The refrigerator was crowded with less than ten people inside, we were in and out in five mintues. It is the most unimpressive place to visit in Melbourne. My expectations were high because of the cover charge.... More

The lady who served us that day was incredibly rude. She insisted that we took the deluxe package which was more expensive that a standard entry of $15. If they don't like customers to buy $15 general entry tickets then why put it on offer? She also did not provide receipt after the transaction was finalised. Very unhappy with the... More

We loved it! So different & so much fun. Everything is ice, including the cups. You get all the gear to keep warm & be able to enjoy your time in side the ice bar. We highly recommend a visit to this place!
