Had a voucher for deluxe entry for $30pp. This included a shot and a cocktail as well as warm clothing. Photos had to be bought separately. The barman (who looked like a young Heath Ledger) was friendly but there was a limited range of drinks. The drinks were tasty but the highlight was the glass cups. The many ice sculptures... More

I was excited to go here - paid the $50 for the full package, but felt like it was a waste as we were in and out within 10 minutes... Was super boring!! It's good to go check out, but only if there isn't much else to do.

I had vouchers for my partner and I to use so turned up on a Thursday evening before dinner. We didn't book however on Fridays and Saturdays you may need to as it is quite small. The staff dressed us in warm woollen ponchos, ugg boots and gloves before we walked into the ice bar and ordered our cocktails (1... More

Went with 3 girlfriends whilst visiting Melbourne for a bit of fun. I had been to Minus 6 bar in the Gold Coast before it closed so knew what to expect. Staff here were fabulous. One lady was claustrophobic and they took so much time to make her feel comfortable before entering. She really enjoyed it. Cocktail was nice and... More

We loved our experience at Chill On Ice Bar!!! We had a 4 year old and two 1 year olds who LOVED it :) The staff were very friendly and helpful and they had tiny suits for the 12 month olds. (So cute) The adults who had cocktails said they were great! I had the 'mocktail' which was literally bottled... More

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
