The ultimate arctic experience and at minus 10 degrees IceBar Melbourne is...

The ultimate arctic experience and at minus 10 degrees IceBar Melbourne is definitely the coolest place in town and the only venue of its kind in Australia.

The IceBar is made from over 30 tonnes of sculpted ice where the walls, tables, chairs and even the bar is made of ice! The current theme at IceBar Melbourne is ‘creatures and monsters’ and features a 3 tonne ice dragon that welcomes you upon entry into the ice interior.

During your stay at the IceBar you are provided with a snow cape and gloves to keep you as snug as a bug in a rug and it’s the most fun you can have with (lots of) clothes on!

It can take over 40 man-hours to cut and sculpt just one figure within the IceBar and it took just on 6 months to freeze enough ice for the creation of this amazing venue.

The IceBar isn’t just for grown-ups; kids are welcome every day from 10am to 7pm making it a unique outing for the whole family to enjoy. While adults are offered a selection of icy cocktails, kids can enjoy fruity drinks whilst being provided with customised capes and gloves.

IceBar Melbourne will turn an experience from memorable into unforgettable, so be sure to add a visit to your ‘to see list’ whilst in Melbourne.

I wish I could give a 0 rating...This place isn't what you see in the photos! They are from the old, amazing ice bar! Even some of these reviews are from the last place, so be careful! It is extremely expensive! The glasses aren't even ice and some, be that, most of the sculptures are PLASTIC!! The room itself is... More

What a letdown! The last ice bar I went to in Melbourne was awesome and I wished it was still open. These cups aren't even ice and there's absolutely no room to even move in there. There's nothing to do in there either because the room is so small. You had to run to go and take the photo and... More

Not what we expected . Really just a big cold room. Ice sculptures where great cocktails where average. Trip was pretty much ruined when we got given a spicy Bloody Mary which I like spicy but to put ghost chillies in it was pretty dumb. Needs to pick up its game or it will go the way of all the...

Was very disappointed with the experience. It was like standing in a cold room with no seating or anywhere to put your glass.

Or TWICE bar. coz I've been there twice. props to mgmt, they've managed to blend the novel concept of a frozen bar with that classic grungy hipster atmosphere that you'll only find in Fitzroy. It doesn't at all feel gimmicky. they even lend u fur coats which is bl**dy necessary coz let me tell you, it ain't warm in there!!... More

We've been to a few ice bars and the biggest thing our kids love is actually eating the frozen glasses! At this ice bar the glasses are actually plastic which we were a bit disappointed in. It's quite small once you're inside which we found a bit stifling once it got busy.

Was expecting a nice bar with a cool atmosphere to sit and have some nice cocktails. However, it was more like a storage cupboard with room for about 7 people to stand in before it became crowded. The cocktails were not particularly nice, and very expensive if you want to purchase another (one is free with the 35$ entry) Although... More

We were a group of 5 girls, old me, to the youngest turning 18 on the day of our visit. For September it was free entry on Tuesday nights which was awesome. It is much smaller inside than expected, but we had read that 10 minutes is a good amount of time to spend in there so maybe that's explains... More

The ice bar was truly a fantastic experience. Thanks to Ange, she was a great host and that made our experience even better! We went to the ice bar to celebrate my sons birthday and Ange made it so special that my kids still talk about it. Highly recommended. A big thank you to Ange.
