Chose this bar for a meal for our last night in Australia. Had lamb chops. One of the chops was stone cold which meant the fat had not melted. I could not eat it. For dessert I chose a ginger pudding. It was burned in the middle which I believe was because it had been microwaved to heat it up.... More

We had shopped all Saturday morning and we were looking for somewhere to sit, relax, eat and have a few drinks. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and thought southgate would be a good spot, however the ground floor places were very crowded so we ventured upstairs and found the Ice Bar and adjoining Amarok. We got a table overlooking... More

Essentially it is a cool room with moulded ice furniture and a bar that uses glasses made out of ice. -16 degrees inside so take a coat to wear under the coat they give you to wear. $30 each to get inside and that includes a drink. Ok to experience a cold environment however I would recommend saving your pennies... More

Lame and a waste of time and money don't do it justice; $30 to get in the door, melting outdated exhibits, and over priced drinks and photos

How about some ice air hockey, a hug of a Star Wars character or a Cocktail in an ice glass (which you can smash once you've finished)? Great fun for the whole family - a bit pricey but worth the trip just to tick it off the list.. $80 family of four including one photo.. Do it once just to... More

I was very excited to experience the Ice Bar as I've never been to one but heard lots of reviews. My partner and I found it a bit pricey but were willing to pay for the experience. We paid for a delux package which if memory serves me right included entry, a shot, 1 drink & a souvenir photo. All... More
