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 booked for my young daughters and myself on Bookme.com and was running late (under half an hour), so as a courtesy, called the bar to let them know. I was told by the owner "bad luck" and I could only enter if I bought new tickets when I arrived. I offered to forfeit the drinks as my daughters just... More

It is a nice bar, but there are many great and fantastic bars in Melbourne. This place is over priced and over rated. The staff were not that helpful or friendly. I would give it a miss.

We visited in December. Before entering, we asked about the size of the place from the girl at the reception. She said it can accommodate 40 people, which is a BIG lie!!! Utterly disappointing as if she did not lie, we would have gone back without entering the venue. It was very tiny, more like a freezer than a bar.... More

My partner and I visited the ice bar during the Christmas 2016 break and were pretty disappointed. $35 each is the standard price for entry and 1 cocktail which tasted like straight cordial. The ice bar looks nothing like their website and is actually cramped and resembles a deli freezer with plastic sculptures more than a cool ice bar. You... More

My friend and me had a funny time in the ice bar! The staff were wonderful and we were feeling welcomed! Especially the lady in the front (the owner I think) is just lovely! The bar itself was a little bit small but we had a great experience in there! Thank you!!

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

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighborhood Profile
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighborhood that embraces both old and new.
