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.

The bar was smaller than i thought. Its very cold, minus 10, so if you have thermals take them with you and wear them. The gloves that they give you are thin and need to be thicker. Bring your own if you have them. We would have stayed and had more drinks but the cold wont allow this. Definately a... More

Such an amazing experience visiting this place and now I've got good memories of coming here.. The staff are lovely and they were keen for me to be there... Wish there were more places like this but Melbourne are very lucky to have the one and only ice bar...

Extremely dissapointed and thought it was a waste of money when my daughter told me of her experience at the other one i was excited but this new venue is sadly dissapointing.

From the minute you walk in the door the reception you receive will warm you up. The staff are fantastic and very friendly. If you haven't been to an Ice Bar before it is a fun experience. It would be great on a hot summers day.

I’m not sure if I’m being critical here but I didn’t think that Ice Bar is worth the $40 entry. Excellent service and the idea of ice cocktails is nice, but the actual Ice Bar area is extremely small! We were in there for about half an hour (I was told this is average), and with 6 more people (excluding... More

And I thought living in Ballarat was cold. Ice Bar Melbourne offers a new and different experience with the entire room made from ice. The size of the room is smaller then expected, however, staff and atmosphere was great. Recommend this to anyone!!!

The Ice bar theme has been done to death in many major cities and Melbourne's version is nothing much different from the others. It has a couple of games and some very interesting ice carvings, you can have your photo taken with your friends, drink cocktails and shots and generally act silly, which we did when we visited with our...

Fun experience especially for the younger ones. The room was smaller than expected from photos I had seen of this place. Overall on the pricey side despite having discount vouchers for the adults. Warm clothing and gloves provided were useful, but still difficult to stay in there for too long. The basketball ice sculpture which came with a ball and... More

We truly enjoyed being there, there were about 10 of us and it was a good fun. I think it's good if you go in a group
