The staff were awesome, $15 each to get into a steel box about 25m2, terrible ice sculptures, lame animal skins and a $17 cocktail that was half the portion you'd expect. Maybe if you were a little drunk and with a group you'd enjoy yourself more?

We visited this bar during the Melbourne tennis open and wish we did not bother. Admittedly we did visit the bar towards the end of the night but still did not expect to be rushed through as quick as we were. All around us they were packing the bar up and finishing for the night. I would not have minded... More

You pay an entry fee of $15, once inside the drinks are overpriced and you are not allowed to use your own camera. The refrigerator was crowded with less than ten people inside, we were in and out in five mintues. It is the most unimpressive place to visit in Melbourne. My expectations were high because of the cover charge.... More

The lady who served us that day was incredibly rude. She insisted that we took the deluxe package which was more expensive that a standard entry of $15. If they don't like customers to buy $15 general entry tickets then why put it on offer? She also did not provide receipt after the transaction was finalised. Very unhappy with the... More

We loved it! So different & so much fun. Everything is ice, including the cups. You get all the gear to keep warm & be able to enjoy your time in side the ice bar. We highly recommend a visit to this place!

Paid online for entry and a cocktail for my boyfriend and I. He works in a cold room for work so he walked in and could handle the cold straight away but surely the -11 started to even get to him. Was great that it was just my partner and I in there at the time so we could marvel... More

I went to this bar 2 weeks ago with family, it cost me $80 with a (not flash) drink each and were provided with the clothing to stay warm. The bar is 10 below zero so it is all over in15 minutes and you have to pay for any pictures that are taken. We had fun while inside this bar... More

Gimmick? Maybe, but an interesting one. In a bar at -10 degrees Celsius I felt a bit (just a bit) sorry for the barman. It was impressive to see all the ice bricks, ice furniture, ice glasses, and ice sculptures. The cocktails were lovely, the staff were lovely. My curiosity sated, it's a one-off experience.
