Description: Nothing works up a thirst quite like an Antarctic winter deep in the heart...
Nothing works up a thirst quite like an Antarctic winter deep in the heart of Melbourne. Enjoy a drink surrounded by more than 50 tons of carved ice. Everything within the Ice Lounge is made of ice - the table, chairs and even the glass you drink from! Guests are provided with snow capes, gloves and woolen boots so they are kept warm and comfortable within Melbourne’s coolest space. Stunning Arctic-themed cocktails are served in glasses made entirely from ice, while guests enjoy cool music and warm service in an environment that is truly unique. After an unforgettable Ice Lounge experience, head into the inviting warmth of the Ski Lodge bar and restaurant.

We went to the Ice Bar for the experience of the cold, you can have photos taken inside (at cost) and have a drink in the -5 to 10 degree temperature. Not that much to do once inside, but a great group experience.

Went with a friend, we were really keen but once inside, it wasn't what I'd expected. The entry is $30 which includes socks, ugg type boots, gloves, wooden gloves, a poncho and 1 cocktail. Once inside, the room isn't very big and there was only a few other people in there but it seemed like it was packed. There are... More

Great fun activity to do while in Melbourne. The atomsphere was great. The non-alcoholic drink was very tasty. The photos available were of good quality and value.

There's an entry fee (minimum AU$30) that includes a cocktail which is a little exe given that the bar is a small room with nothing to do except take selfies with the 2 cameras mounted on the wall (you're not...

Very cool sculptures, and an 'ice hockey' table that was fun. Loved the glasses and shot glasses made of ice. Staff were very friendly. However, the coats they have you wear smelt like they could do with a good wash, as they smelt like B.O. which was pretty off-putting. Also would have been cool to be able to take our... More
