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.

A fun novelty to do in Melbourne but probably not worth doing more than once. You get all rugged up in gear they provide and in you go to the rather small bar area, the ice carvings are great and the selfie cameras are fun but come at a price

If you are looking to try something a little different I would suggest going to the "Chill on Ice Bar" where you can sit on the ice chairs and drink your choice of cocktails from an Ice cup. However... I would not suggest going this bar as soon as it opens (like i did) because believe me walking around melbourne... More

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

Went today to use Groupon voucher to find the bar has closed down for good! Check their website. You can get a refund from Groupon if you contact them.

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
