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.

I was surprised that the price of this thing was not too expensive at all. The experience is not really something you go to for more than 15 mins or more but I found it wonderful and the other bonus was that (at the time) it was just my wife and I in there. Highly recommended.

First off it's super expensive so try to find a deal to make it a but more worth it. The clothes they give you to into the ice bar with are also massive and one of the top parts wreaked of vomit, you'd assume they'd wash it more often. It is an awesome experience but you'd probably only do it... More

My friends and I saw the Ice Bar on an episode of The Block in 2014 and decided we just HAD to go when we visited Melbourne later that year. I'm glad we had discount vouchers, because it was rather pricey! We received 1 free drink, and weren't allowed to use our phones to take photos inside the bar, instead... More

If you are looking for something a little different to do in Melbourne then this is it. Was a fun experience with lovely staff!! Drinks are a little pricy but it's all about the experience and after about half an hour the cold starts to get to you, but worth it to start your night out and it's only a... More

Got a voucher on scoopon for entry plus a cocktail which was a reasonably price, nearly half what you pay for just entry. It was freezing once we got in there but enjoyed our cocktail and took heaps of photos before deciding that we couldn't handle the cold too much longer. We left and bought a photo before leaving, the... More

I bought cheap tickets on Scoopon and I was glad I did as I isn't think it is worth their full asking price. We arrived at 4pm and the place was quiet. The girl greeting us was great and the barman was also great. The drinks were expensive considering their size. We took photos at the two photo spots and... More

The staff and bar tender were very friendly. Its a cool (ha-ha) experience that you would probably only do once or twice due to the price and the fact that once you've done it, theres really no need to go again. The entry fee isnt too bad as it includes a (small) cocktail, but photos inside are prohibited and you... More

I purchased tickets to the melbourne ice bar as a present for my boyfriends' birthday. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. It was fun trying on these massive poncho, snow jackets and uggs and gloves. The sculptures inside were nice enough but it was just about to undergo renovations, so the time we went they were a little damaged.... More
