Owner description: 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 bought a special offer and received a cocktail, a shot... More

Love the Ice Bar! Me and my boyfriend had 2 cocktails and a shot, all in ice glasses. You get given big coats and gloves, and I was given Ugg boots to wear. There were 2 areas to take photos. We bought 2, they were $15 each.

My son took me to the Ice Bar, it was a great experience. Great ice sculptures,music and a small but nice cocktail. The air hockey was good fun too. It is a small bar but a fun experience. We were given ugg boots, capes and mittens to wear, but take the gloves off and your hands get real cold! The... More

This was an experience that you have to do at least once. The temperature in the Ice Bar was between -4 and -9 so it is pretty cold. Sometimes the fans a blowing which makes it even colder so if you can't handle that don't go in. They supply gloves, jackets and boots for those with open toe shoes which... More

Chill on ice bar is a great experience people are saying it's pricey but you can't do what you do here at to many other places around Melbourne. So just enjoy it.

I took my daughter to this ($30 adult, $15 child which includes one cocktail/mocktail each) Had it not included the drinks I don't think I would have gone in. They supply you mittens and ugg boots and capes, then in you go. It's -8 degrees in there that day, the drinks were cold (but small) and the place is quite... More

We were on a day out exploring Melbourne and it was such a hot day (it was summertime) so we decided to try something fun out of the sun for a while. My friend had heard about this place and said it was supposed to be awesome so we tried it out. The bartender inside the ice room was hilarious... More

A tiny - over sized fridge decorated with ice statues of random cartoon / film characters which add nothing to the experience - and two cameras to capture the "Happy Moment" you realised you made a huge mistake shelling out $100 for this experience. The staff were only interested in pushing you through the door -selling EXTRA over priced drinks... More
