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 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.

We went with high expectations ...they were quickly squashed. It is so tiny inside, we were expecting seats and tables like a bar should have...it was more like a cooler room with ice sculptures. The staff were friendly but just don't ask why you can't take a photo with your phone - the answer was cold and referred to the... More

The pamphlet for this ice bar makes it look really big and plenty of room to move around with seats and tables. It's anything but. Its a waste of money and I definitely wouldn't suggest anyone to go here. It's basically a tiny little freezer only a couple of metres wide. No chairs to sit down. So you're basically just... More

I went there using an entertainment book voucher which made it a bit more worthy as otherwise it would be very expensive for what it is. It is very small inside and 20 minutes is prob all u need before u get bored. One of the nice features is that you can take selfies with the bar's camera and as... More

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

Friendly staff cannot make up for how ridiculously overpriced this is. You stand in a small room (only a couple of metres by a metre or so) with no seating, and awkwardly sip on a drink then leave. Don't waste your money or time.

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.
